Rates & Insurance


Please call to discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and to schedule a consultation.  

My fee for a 45-minute Individual session is $ I70.00.  

My fee for a 1-hour Couples session is $185.00.

Cash or check are accepted for payment. I will give you a bill/statement at the end of the month. Payment is expected at the following week. Please call to discuss payment further.

Cancellation Policy
Your scheduled appointment times will be reserved for you on a weekly basis. For treatment to be most effective it is to attend sessions on a regularly scheduled basis.  Your scheduled time will be held for you. You will be charged for missed or cancelled sessions. We can reschedule missed or cancelled sessions at a time that is convenient for both of us. Please call to discuss my cancellation policy further.


I am not a provider for any insurance plan. I will give you a bill/statement at the end of the month. You can submit this bill to your insurance carrier if you have an out of network benefit with them.

To determine if you have out of network mental health coverage, the first thing you should do is check with your insurance carrier. Check your coverage carefully and find the answers to the following questions:

- What are my mental health benefits?
- Do I have an out-of network benefit?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
- How much does my insurance pay for an out of network provider?
- Do I have a deductible? How much is it?
