My fee is based on a standard 50 minute therapy session.
Payment of fees are expected at time of service. If your insurance carrier provides out-of-network provider coverage, and you wish to be reimbursed, I will provide a month-end statement for you to submit to your plan, upon your request. Many common insurance carriers such as PPO and POS plans will reinburse you for our work together. Prior to our first session, it is advised you contact your health insurance company to verify your out-of-network mental health benefits for LMFT services, also referred to as "behavioral health."
For several reasons I have chosen to operate my practice on a privately-paid basis. My experience has shown that this arrangement is in the best interests of both my practice and my clients. Studies show that clients who pay privately for health services tend to be more active and invested in their well-being, which makes for exciting and fulfilling work for both client and therapist. You can be the only party deciding how many sessions you wish, how often you wish to schedule them, and how long you are willing to participate in therapy. I believe that the retention of privacy and control is critically important and empowers you to take care of yourself, your way.
Cash or check.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
