Fees and Insurance

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

My full rate for both psychotherapy and coaching sessions is $160 per 50 minute session. Payment is due each time we meet.  I accept check, cash, debit and credit cards (MC/Visa).  Sessions can also be prepaid via Paypal through the “Payments” page on this website.  If  we are billing your insurance and you have a copay or co-insurance, your portion is due at the time of the session.

 

I accept some health insurance carriers for psychotherapy sessions, and when you contact me, you are welcome to inquire about whether I am contracted with your particular carrier.  While I will have my billing service check benefits before our first session, clients are ultimately responsible for knowing their benefits, and it is recommended that you take the time to call your carrier as well.  For psychotherapy clients who are without insurance, or have insurance through a carrier that I am not contracted with, I offer a negotiated reduced fee.  Feel free to inquire about this when contacting me.

 

Health insurance will not cover the cost of coaching sessions.  In the event that my full fee presents a financial hardship. please inquire about a negotiated reduced fee for coaching.

 

Health insurance will not cover consultations for IUI or IVF.  The charge for these sessions is $300, which includes the consultation time as well as the cost for the written report that will be submitted to your referring fertility clinic.   There is no sliding fee for this service.  If you are an egg donor, the fee for your consultation and the report will be paid by the referring fertility clinic.

 

Please give at least 24 hours notice when canceling an appointment. The full fee will be charged for late cancellations, barring personal illness or family emergency.
