In the event that you still can’t afford my rate, and you are in a crisis or emergency situation, I will help to locate resources that are accessible for you.
Before I accept a new client, I require a free 15-minute phone consultation, during which we can discuss your needs and goals, and make a preliminary assessment about the suitability of the relationship. If it is determined that I do not have the skill set needed to treat you, I am happy to help you find a more suitable option.
The current rate for a session is $175. A portion of this payment helps vulnerable individuals access my therapy services.
Sliding Scale Appointments
I understand that mental health support is not affordable for many. I also offer sliding scale appointments based on individual means and circumstances. Those who are most affected by systems of oppression and financial insecurity are prioritzed.
At the current time, my sliding scale slots are full. I will update the site if more become available. Sliding scale therapy clients are accepted based on the situation as well as the income level and financial means of the individual in need.
All payments are due on the day of your session and will be charged at the end of your session. I accept major credit cards, as well as health spending account (HSA) and flexible spending account (FSA) cards.
Currently, I am not an in-network provider on any health insurance panels. If you have out of network coverage, however, I am willing to provide paperwork to support your claims.
Please be aware however that there is no guarantee that your health insurance provider will accept your claims, and any questions related to your coverage should be directed to your insurance provider.
Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate of Expected Charges
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE A “GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE” EXPLAINING HOW MUCH YOUR MEDICAL CARE WILL COST. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
