I do not accept insurance copayments.  Clients pay me directly in full for each session and I will file insurance claims for clients' reimbursement if desired.

Please check your insurance coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

    • What are my mental health services benefits?
    • What is my reimbursement amount for psychotherapy/counseling with a doctoral level, licensed psychologist?  (Please note that many in-network therapists are not PhD or doctoral level.)
    • Is there a limit to the number of therapy sessions my plan covers? 
    • What is the deductible for my out-of-network benefits?   
    • Is approval required from my primary care physician? 

PreMarital Counseling Package for engaged couples:  A special package of three 45-minute sessions for $450, focusing on communication and conflict resolution skills,personality styles and "love languages," negotiating "The Big Three: Sex, Money & Kids," .  
Discounted fees are offered full-time, self-supporting students and  active military personnel and their dependents.  

Cash, check and all major credit cards including HSA cards are accepted for payment.  A credit card is required to secure the first appointment and is charged 24 hours in advance of the appointment.  
  An $8.00 credit card processing fee is applied to all charges.  No additional charge is applied for cash or check payment for follow-up visits.
