Fees and Insurance

-Therapy (based on session duration):

  • Initial Intake (90 minutes): $220
  • Regular Session (45 - 50 minutes): $160
  • Classroom Observation or other community meeting (60 minutes): $160 for local, $220 for distant

Clients have the option of paying at the time of each session or receiving a cumulative bill at the end of the month, with payment due during the first week of the following month. 

If you are interested in receiving therapy but cannot afford my full fee, please contact me. I provide treatment on a sliding scale to a limited number of clients. I believe that therapy should be accessible to anyone who needs it, regardless of financial means. 

-Psychological Assessments:

Assessment batteries are determined on a case-by-case basis and fees are assessed based on the complexity and amount of time required. I conduct comprehensive assessments that may include testing of neuropsychological, academic, and adaptive functioning. Additionally, behavioral, emotional, and personality testing may be warranted to clarify diagnosis and inform recommendations. The menu below is an example of what is typically involved in each type of assessment.

Services are billed at a flat rate or by prior arrangement at an hourly rate of $160/hour. Half of the fee for psychological assessments is due at the time of the initial interview meeting. The remainder of the fee must be paid in full at the feedback meeting. As with therapy cases, I offer a sliding scale fee for psychological assessments to those with special financial circumstances. 

-Insurance:

I am a preferred provider with Aetna health insurance. If you have another insurance plan that includes therapy or psychological assessment as part of your benefit, a portion of my fee could be covered as an out-of-network provider. I can provide you with a receipt and information that you can give your insurance company to apply for reimbursement. Also, in some cases, your insurance may also grant a single case agreement to see me as a specialist using your in-network benefits.

Behavioral health and assessment reimbursement rates vary widely across insurance companies. Also, some insurance only covers therapy services and not assessment. Please contact your insurance company to clarify your coverage options.

-Types of Payment Accepted:

I accept cash, check, or credit card payment (American Express, Discover, Visa, Mastercard)
