What are your fees?
My fee is $150 dollars for a 50 minute in office or online/virtual session.
What exactly am I paying for?
This is a great question! I hadn’t ever thought about it until I was talking with another therapist, and she told me she addresses this on her website (true confession).
You want to know that the therapist you’re investing your precious time and money into knows what the heck they’re doing!
You are paying for well over 30 years of education, training, certifications, personal therapy, consultation, licensure, and deep personal exploration in understanding myself and what it means to be a Highly Sensitive Person.
My misfortune of having a number of hardships in my life, including some trauma, is your gift. In working through many of my own issues, I personally know not only what it’s like to have specific struggles, but I also know the power of working through those challenges, and learning what has been effective, and what approaches totally stink (and I don’t use those approaches!).
Do you have lower fee slots?
Yes! I offer a number of low-fee slots because I understand that not everyone can afford my full fee. Please check with me to see if I have any open slots.
Do you take insurance?
I am no longer accepting insurance.
If you have insurance, I am happy to provide you with a form that you can send to your insurance for possible reimbursement. This means that you are responsible for payment when we have our session, and depending on your plan, a certain percentage of that may be paid to you by your insurance company.
I encourage you to call the number on the back of your insurance card to find out what your “out of network” benefits are. Please be sure to ask about deductibles, because these can often be quite high. Ask them where to send the “superbill” – that’s what the form I will give you is called. You will then need to send the superbill to your insurance for possible reimbursement.
When submitting a superbill, I am required to provide a mental health diagnosis. If you have questions about this, please bring it up when we speak.
How can I pay?
All fees are due on the day of the session or before. Payments can be made by exact cash, check or by credit card through the secure Electronic Health Record (EHR) I use.
Can someone else pay for my sessions?
Yes! If they are paying by credit card, their information can be entered into the EHR (with their permission).
