Rates for therapy
Fees for therapy sessions:
The fee for a standard 50-minute session is $140
Initial intake assessment sessions are $150
Reduced, sliding scale fees:
A small number of reduced fee services are available on a sliding scale for weekly or biweekly sessions. Please reach out if this is needed.
If you have the means, you are welcome to pay a higher rate for your own services to subsidize the fees of those receiving a sliding scale.
On the topic of insurance, I have found that I am better able to meet the diverse needs of families when not having to fit the boxes designed by insurance companies. Through much consideration, I have decided not to accept insurance at this time. I’ve outlined below several of the benefits of seeking treatment and services outside of your insurance coverage.
If using insurance is best for your family at this time you can use
to find paneled providers in both NC and FL.
Insurance companies require clinicians to diagnose their patients, and that diagnosis has the capacity to become a lifelong “pre-existing condition” on a person’s medical record despite the fact that mental health conditions are typically short-term in nature, and often go away or reduce in severity after effective treatment. This can be especially worrisome for children.
If you're looking for services for your little one, you already know that you're looking for someone who has a particular set of skills and knowledge. While there may be many clinicians who work with children, my specialization and extensive training allows me to complete this work in a shorter time-frame than other clinicians without the same level of training and experience. Treatment with a specialized provider may actually cost less time and money than an in-network provider.
Insurance companies create boxes and expect children, families, and treatment to fit into them. By completing my work without the influence of insurance companies, I am able to provide greater personalization in my clients' care including where treatment happens (e.g., online, in your home, in the community), how frequently sessions happen, and the duration of each session conducted.
I am always available for questions about fees, insurance, and billing.
Good Faith Estimate
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act (a.k.a. the No Surprises Act), health care providers and health care facilities are required to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for services, known as a "Good Faith Estimate." As a licensed medical professional I am required to provide you with a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) for therapy services.
Under the law, you have the right to receive a GFE for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
While it is not possible for me to know, in advance, how many therapy sessions may be necessary or appropriate for a given person, this form provides an estimate of the cost of services rendered that are provided per session.
Your total cost of services will depend upon the number of sessions you attend, your individual circumstances, and the type and/or amount of services that are provided to you.
If you receive a bill from any provider that is at least $400 more than your GFE, you can dispute the bill.
You are not required to sign the GFE you but are encouraged to keep a copy for your records.
