$275 per 50 minute session. Session times can be extended by request, and additional sessions per week may be scheduled as per your request.

If we decide to meet for a longer than 50 minute session, you will be billed at a prorated hourly fee. Calls and emails of less than 10 minutes are usually at no cost, however if we spend more than 10 minutes per week on the phone, if you leave me more than 10 minutes of phone messages, or if I need to spend more than 10 minutes per week reading and responding to emails from you, know that you will be billed on a prorated basis for that time

Payment: Cash, check, Visa and MasterCard are accepted for payment. Payments are made at each session.

Insurance: If you have insurance that covers mental health, I will fill out the appropriate form for you to send in to your provider for you to receive reimbursement.
