I charge $165 for a 50-minute counseling session. I provide a sliding scale fee schedule, based on income, upon request. Payment is due in cash, check, or credit card at the time of each session. For remote therapy I use the IVYPAY instant pay mobile app tailor-made for therapists to process clients’ credit, debit, HSA and FSA cards.
I accept insurance from AETNA, and HUMANA. I also take clients as an out-of-network provider for other insurance carriers or PPO’s. If you have coverage that has an out of network provision I can certainly support reimbursement under that plan.
For insured and out-of-network providers and PPO’s, I give clients a statement (superbill) they can submit to insurance companies for reimbursement due under their policy. Please be aware that most couples therapy is not covered by behavioral health insurance.
Please note that negotiating a fee is just one aspect of finding a therapist that’s the best fit for you.
