    Rates

    The cost of therapy sessions range in price depending on whether the session is covered by insurance ($98 - $105) or is paid out-of-pocket ($150).

    Out-of-pocket rates ($150) apply for the following counseling services:

    • Couple therapy
    • EMDR therapy
    • Sex Addiction therapy
    • Animal Assisted Therapy
    • Emotional Support Animal designation
    • Documentation of sessions for any reason ($150 per page)

    For individual sessions the cost varies based on the rate of insurance reimbursement that can vary between ($98 - $105).

    Insurance

    I accept many insurances as payment for therapy services. Below is the current list:

    • Bluecross Blueshield
    • Carefirst
    • Cigna
    • United Healthcare

    Every insurance plan is different. I will work with you and your insurance to expedite the reimbursement process. Most clients have a copay amount they owe for each session. This varies depending on the plan and can range from ($5 - $35). The copay is due at the end of each session. Also some insurance plans have a deductible amount. This varies based on the plan and is an amount that the client has to “meet” or pay out-of-pocket at the beginning of each insurance calendar year. Until the deductible is met, the insurance will not reimburse for any healthcare service. Occasionally you will have to contact your insurance to resolve unpaid claims.

    Payment

    For copays, unpaid claims and out-of-pocket clients, I accept cash, checks and cards.

    Cancellation Policy

    If a client cancels an appointment less than 24 hours prior or simply does not show up, this is

    regarded as a “same-day cancellation.” In this case, the client is responsible for the total cost of the session. Their insurance does not cover this cost. This is not personal, it is a standard business policy for counselors.
