Couples Counseling: Most insurance plans do not cover couples therapy, only individual and family therapy. If you are looking for Gottman therapy, please know that insurance does not cover this service. My fee for couples therapy is $250 for a 60-minute session.
Reduced Fee: Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis.
Payment: Cash, check, and all major credit cards are accepted for payment.
Cancellation Policy: If you do not attend your scheduled therapy appointment and have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full session cost.
Your health insurance or employee benefit plan may cover services in whole or part. I work with MHN, Optum/United Healthcare, Beacon, Magellan, and Evernorth. 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 approval for mental health appointments required prior authorization by my primary care physician?
- Does my insurance cover couples therapy?
- Does my insurance cover telehealth?
- If your plan is different from the ones listed above, you may ask if you have out-of-network coverage.
As a courtesy, I will gladly provide the appropriate document (superbill) for you to submit to any other insurance company. You will be responsible for my full fee if your insurance is not listed above.
