Fees & Insurance


The cost for an initial assessment is $180, and each subsequent session is $150.  Each session lasts 60 minutes.  Longer appointments can be arranged for an additional fee.  If you have health insurance, your plan may pay for psychotherapy services (see below).  If you do not have insurance, and are unable to pay the listed fee, ask about our sliding scale which provides a moderate discount on counseling for those who meet income guidelines. 


Please check with your insurance provider about your mental health benefits before scheduling your first appointment by calling the number listed on your insurance card. There may be restrictions on which therapist you can see and how many sessions insurance will pay for in a year.  Here are some important questions to ask your insurance customer service representative:

  • Do I have mental health coverage?
  • Will my insurance pay for psychotherapy services provided by the specific therapist I am interested in seeing?
  • Am I required to “preauthorize” psychotherapy sessions before I meet with a therapist?  If yes, how many sessions are pre-authorized?  Is there an authorization number?
  • What amount am I expected to pay for each session (usually either a percentage or a co-pay amount)?
  • Are my mental health benefits subject to a deductible?  If so, how much is it?
  • Is there a limit to the number of sessions insurance will cover each year?  If yes, how many?
  • Is there an annual dollar amount limit on my mental health benefits?  If yes, how much?
