Your therapist will spend the earlier part of the session going over any initial intake forms, confidentiality agreements and other paperwork. In the first session we invite you to talk about what brings you to therapy and ask questions that you might have about working with your therapist, the cost of therapy and frequency of your sessions . The first three therapy sessions are important to determine if you and your therapist are a good fit.

We are "out of network" with all insurance plans and do not maintain contract agreements with any health insurance providers. We are happy to provide statements of service. If you are eligible for “out of network” benefits we can mail in claims as a courtesy to you. Please check with your insurance provider regarding your benefits, as plans differ. It is also your responsibility to follow up with your insurance provider if we are filing claims on your behalf.

Therapy session fees vary and are subjective to each therapist. Generally, fees range from $200-$375. For financial hardships most therapists do offer sliding scale rates. You may inquire with your therapist about their rate and discuss your financial situation. Unless other arrangements are made, all fees are due on the date of service.
