The standard rates for counseling sessions are $125 for each 50-minute session.
Psychological Evaluation and Letters
Letters may be provided for ongoing clients for a number of reasons: emotional support animal for housing or air travel, ADA accessibility accommodations for university students, and gender-affirming letters.
Gender letters are provided according to the Informed Consent Model and have no required session minimum. For more info on the guidelines followed: https://transhealth.ucsf.edu/trans?page=guidelines-mental-health
I understand that finances can cause significant hardships that hinder people from seeking therapy. In an attempt to counteract that, I offer a limited number of scholarship slots, where clients will be charged less than the Sliding Scale based on their individual needs and circumstances. If you are suffering significant financial challenges, please inquire about whether there are available scholarship slots at this time. Reported financial hardship is based on the honor system.
I am currently a network provider on CIGNA’s insurance panel at this time. Contact us for more information on how your sessions might get covered.
We do recognize some benefits to paying out of pocket: (1) retaining privacy from insurance companies, as they would otherwise have access to your complete record, including session content, (2) no formal diagnoses become part of your medical record, and (3) no limit to the number of sessions in which you are allowed.
If you have out-of-network benefits, I am happy to provide you with an insurance superbill to submit to your insurer for reimbursement using your out-of-network insurance agreement. Your insurance company will require a mental health diagnosis on record.
Cash, check, Square Cash, Apple Pay, Venmo, and major credit cards are accepted.
If you do not cancel your appointment at least 24 hours in advance, you may be required to pay for the full cost of the session. Cancellation fees may be partially applied to future session costs.
Please email me with any additional questions or concerns about cost, pricing, or insurance use.
