Rates and Insurance

The following rates are the amount that will be charged to self-pay clients (payable at time of service) and billed to insurance companies. If I am an in-network provider for your insurance company they will pay at a contracted rate. Clients will be responsible to pay co-pay or amounts that apply to deductible at the time of service. I accept cash, checks and credit cards, including Health Savings Account cards.

Reasons To Consider Self-Paying
Simply put, privacy is the reason to self-pay for therapy. When you self-pay for counseling services no information will ever leave my office. In cases where complete privacy is your objective, self-pay is the option that will ensure that you will not have a diagnosis or progress notes sent to any entity (e.g. health or life insurance company, employer, etc.) outside of your sessions unless you explicitly sign a release to have your private health information given to someone else. Because you pay up front when you choose to self-pay, not even a billing service receives your information. If you need this peace of mind, self-pay will provide it.
