Getting Started

Therapy is an important investment into yourself, your relationships, and your ability to reach your goals. Working hard in therapy often results in improvements not just in yourself (mood, perspectives, energy) but in your relationships and activities (work, education, play).

Fees & How Things Work:

  • The out of pocket cost for a 55 minute session is $150.00. This is the same for individuals, couples, family, and first or subsequent sessions.

  • ​I do offer sliding scale fees, which start @ $70 and go up to $150. Please contact me directly for how sliding scale works and discuss what you are able to afford. Sliding scale spots are limited each week.

Insurance companies operate on a medical model, which means they require a diagnosis to establish that you have “a medical necessity” to seek services in order to pay providers. Many insurance companies don’t consider the things we are working on as medically necessary, or debilitating enough to reimburse. With that being said, if I give a diagnosis, it becomes a part of your medical record, if using insurance, I am required to give a diagnosis. While that might not be such a big deal right now, some find it can become one later on if you want to get life insurance, work in the financial sector managing other’s assets, gain security clearance for work, regularly handle firearms, or seek employment in any sector in which your decision-making might be called into question due to your emotional state.​ It is important to me that my patients get help they need without fear, stigma, or reprisal for making their mental health and personal growth a priority.

 

If you have any questions about insurance, diagnosis or payment I am more than happy to answer them so you can make the best informed choice for you. ​
