I do not have a sliding scale, but I regularly make exceptions to my fee in certain circumstances. Mostly these circumstances relate to when I may be able to lower my fee for sessions scheduled in a time that is not in high demand. I will often lower my fee for a student or adolescent who doesn’t have adult help or resources and needs my therapeutic help. I will also, at times, lower my fee for single mothers and their children.
Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in part. I resigned from all the insurance panels almost 20 years ago. I did not like the way they treated their customers, my patients, and myself when psychotherapy was a necessity and they would act as gatekeepers simply to lower their costs by denying further benefits. Not being on these panels means that your coverage with me will almost always be on an out of network basis. At times, when this makes it not possible to get the help with me that you want, I will lower my fee somewhat more, or make a payment plan, to make it possible for us to work together.
If you are considering seeing me, I will help you with a set of questions and concerns to talk about with your Insurance Provider. I will also help you navigate with your insurance company to help you get reimbursement. In all circumstances it is understood that you have responsibility for the fee.
I accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment. I also accept payment via PayPal and you can pay directly on my site on this page. I prefer, though, to be paid at the time of our meeting.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 48 hours in advance. I do not charge for late cancellation in many emergency of life situations. I always charge, and regret having to do so, when your late cancel is for other priority of life situations. We will speak together about these specifics.
