FEES
I charge $90.00 for standard 50-minute sessions. Additionally, I charge $75.00 for missed appointments and cancellations with less than 24-hour notice. Payment is required at the time services are rendered. Clients who have outstanding charges and fail to make advance financial arrangements, will not be able to schedule further appointments.

INSURANCE
Insurance reimbursement varies considerably from policy to policy. Most policies have annual deductibles, copayments, and other limits of benefits. It is best to contact your insurance company to inquire about your benefits. I routinely file insurance claims. Please be aware that you are responsible for paying your account if your insurance company does not make payment within thirty (30) days of filing the claim.

If you are covered under a managed care plan, there are likely to be strict limits on the number of sessions that will be approved by your managed care company. In my experience, most insurance policies provide from ten (10) to twenty (20) psychotherapy sessions per year. However, most managed care plans often approve only four (4) to six (6) crisis intervention sessions per year. I can usually provide services to you without managed care authorization, but you will be required to pay for such services.


SUPERVISION

 I provide supervision geared towards personal and professional development, enhancement of clinical skills, and career exploration. I charge $75 for one hour of individual supervision and $50 for a 1.5 hour group session.

Your appointment time is scheduled specifically for you. If it is necessary for you to cancel or reschedule an appointment, I ask that you contact me at least two days in advance by telephone or email requesting to reschedule or cancel your appointment.
