My rate is $200 per 50-minute session. This is standard rate in bay area for a licensed mental health professional with 10+ years of experience. I have 12 years of experience in the field, including work at family therapy clinic and school districts. My expertise has garnered me training and teaching in US and overseas, supervising intern therapists.
Family and couple session will go to 75 to 100 minutes depending on the therapeutic needs with the same rate. I do not want to prevent you from benefitting from couple and family work because of different fee though couple and family therapy requires special skills and more work.
I also offer up to 20 minutes free phone consultation prior our formal meeting.
I understand some people may have hardship attending weekly session that they need. Insurance makes service affordable and it is my value to help a variety of people. Currently I am on Cigna and Anthem Blue Cross panel. If I am not at your insurance panel, most PPO or POS insurance carrier allows you to choose an out-of-network provider. You will pay me a standard fee and your insurance company will reimburse you with a monthly super bill or necessary billing document that I can provide you.
Reduced fee services are available depending on the financial needs and available time slots. Again I want to make service available to a variety of people.
PPO/Private pay: $160 - $200 with super bill or other reimbursement documents
Cash discount for low income population: $140
Payment is due each session. Cash, check and PayPal accepted for payment. If I cannot collect payment from your insurance company, I will collect payment from you and provide you with reimbursement documents.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
