Fees & Insurance

My regular fee is for a 50 minute hour. Payment can be made on a weekly or monthly basis and I accept cash, check or credit card.  I am able to accommodate a limited number of sliding scale clients. Please contact me to discuss this option further.

I do not currently accept insurance directly, but am happy to provide you with a monthly invoice that will have all the necessary information for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

*Please contact your insurance company prior to starting therapy to confirm they reimburse for out-of-network providers.
