Fees & Payment Methods
Feel invited to call for a free telephone consultation.  I will be happy to answer any questions you might have

Regular Fee
Fee for 50 minutes of individual (10 years and older), couples, and family counseling services is $100 .  I only accept cash, checks, or money orders (sorry, no credit or debit cards). 
From my experience, children under the age of 10 typically struggle with maintaining attention beyond a half hour of counseling.  My regular fee for 25 minues of play therapy or counseling with a child under the age of 10 is $50

Fee for Services vs. Insurance
My belief is that information regarding mental health diagnosis should be held in confidence between a counselor and client. I believe that an informed consumer should have control over the information related to such personal concerns.  In order for a mental health professional to bill an insurance company for payment, the professional must provide diagnostic information to the client's insurance company.
With this said, I have decided to
charge a fee for services rendered at the time you come for counseling.  After each session (and receipt of payment), I will provide you with a reciept (superbill) that has the appropriate information that an insurance company would require in order to reimburse for counseling services. You may file the superbill with your insurance company and you may receive reimbursement based on your benefits, if you so choose.

 

Sliding Scale

If you are unable to pay the full fee for services, I would be happy to determine your fee on a
sliding scale.
If you would like to be considered for a reduced rate according to the sliding scale, please make the request when you schedule your
first appointment.  You will also need to bring in copies of the following documents:
2 recent pay check stubs for all earners in the home.
Previous year's 1040 income tax filing form.

LPC Intern Supervision
Fee per 50 minutes of LPC Intern Supervision is $50. I welcome the opportunity to visit with prospective LPC Interns to determine if we would be a good supervisory match.
