Rates & Insurance Information:

Rates and Insurance Information:

The fee for individuals and couples is $120.00 per session or as contracted with your insurance company.  Many insurance companies provide behavioral health benefits although their policy on what they cover varies widely. You are strongly encouraged to contact your insurance company before your first visit to be informed and clear about coverage and limitation of benefits.  Often you may find that there are out of network benefits for those insurance companies for which I am not a provider.  If you are insured then there usually is a co-pay or co-insurance determined by your insurance company.  Also some policies have an annual deductible which needs to be met first.  For your convenience you may pay by check or in cash.
