Individual/family sessions of 50-60 minutes are billed at $160.
I accept cash, check, Visa and Mastercard.
As every insurance plan is different, it is helpful to find out what your insurance plan's specific benefits and eligibility requirements are for mental health therapy. I am willing to bill your insurance company for you. I ask that you pay all co-pays upfront. A minimum cancellation notice of 24 hours is required or a full session fee will be charged.
Please fill out as completely as you can. Anything that is not filled out before the appointment will be completed at the beginning of the session. This is given to you in advance to try to minimize the amount of paperwork that will need to be done within the time constraints of our first session.
If you are coming in for couple or family counseling, just one of the adults can fill this out. If the primary client is a teenager, it is preferred that the teenager fill out this paperwork themselves. If you are filling this out for a child, please answer all questions as pertaining to the child.
The below forms will be sent prior to your initial session.

I am only able to respond to a small proportion of the phone calls that I receive (usually just current clients), because I do not have an office assistant. I am able to respond to emails quickly throughout the week. I review all of my phone messages, so rest assured that I have registered and appreciated what you had to say even if I was not able to respond by phone.
