Support That Makes a Difference

Woman by the Water


The Self-pay rate for a 60 minute session is $140.

A popular form of payment for therapy is self-pay. When an individual pays for therapy through self-pay instead of utilizing insurance both confidentiality and treatment remain between you and your therapist. Treatment decisions, length of therapy sessions, confidentiality and many other important decisions are always kept between you and your therapist. However, when utilizing health insurance to pay for therapy you may be giving up confidentiality, treatment decisions, length of therapy and other relevant decisions to your insurance company.

Most clients schedule weekly or bi-weekly. If paying out of pocket then the costs could equal up to $7000 ($140×50weeks) annually.

HSA/FSA cards are accepted.

Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

  • What is my deductible and has it been met?

  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

  • Is a referral or pre-certification required from my primary care physician?

If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so as soon as possible.  We charge $50.00 for sessions that are cancelled with less than a 24-hour notice or when a client fails to show for an appointment without notifying the office. A second consecutive no-show will result in a full session charge.
