Rates & Insurance

Self-pay Rates (Out of Network)

$175 for the first two intake sessions and $160 per session ongoing. Sessions are 55 minutes. 

For those looking to use an insurance plan you may check with your insurance company to see if they offer out of network benefits. 

Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

Do I have out-of-network benefits for mental health services? You can specifically ask about procedure codes 90791 (intake) and 90837 (60 minute therapy session).
If I have out of  network coverage, is there a deductible that needs to be met before I can start obtaining reimbursement?
If so, how much is this deductible and how far am I in meeting it for this calendar year (or the year the plan runs on)?
What percentage of my services will you reimburse for once my deductible is met?
What is the process to submit out-of-network reimbursement?


Cash and all major credit cards accepted for payment.
