Fees

Individual psychotherapy.  Fees begin at $110 per session. Longer sessions are prorated from this basic fee.  The same fee applies for other professional services you may require, such as reading or writing reports or off-site travel and meeting attendance.

Group therapy.  Group rates vary.  Please contact us to discuss your appropriateness for a group session and cost.

Litigation. If you become involved in litigation that requires our participation, we will charge $250 per hour for preparation, travel and attendance at any legal proceeding.

Payment

Payment is made at the time services are rendered unless we’ve made other arrangements. We do “accept assignment,” that is, collect co-payments and bill insurance companies for the remainder of the fee.  If you plan to file a claim with your insurance company, you should check with your carrier about coverage before starting therapy. 

We accept cash, check or credit card payment at the time of service.  You may also pay on-line via PayPal.

Cancellation

A cancelled appointment delays our work.  When you must cancel, please give at least 24 hours notice.  We are not able to fill a cancelled session with less than 24 hours notice.  If you are unable to provide at least 24 hours notice when you cancel, you will be charged the full fee for your session.  Note that your insurance company will not reimburse for missed appointments.  We will consider exceptions to this policy in the event of serious or contagious illness or emergency.

Whether you are seeking relief from serious emotional difficulties, wrestling with a decision or life change, confronting addiction or managing a relationship, we can offer the skilled, professional presence necessary to support you to creative solutions and new horizons.
