Frequently Asked Questions

What insurance do you take?

I am in-network for Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and United Healthcare. I can verify your coverage and what your co-pay or co-insurance will be.

If you have another insurance carrier, don’t worry! Most, if not all, plans provide coverage for out-of-network mental health services. This is typically covered at 60-70% plus your co-pay and often equates to a cost of approximately $30-50 per session. It does require you to pay up front at the time of service. Then I provide a form to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. This can be done at each session or monthly, whichever you prefer.

You can usually find all your benefits on your plan’s website under Behavioral Health or Mental Health Services.

*Keep in mind insurance costs can be impacted by whether or not your deductible has been met for the yea 

What are the costs without insurance?

If you do not have insurance or prefer to pay out of pocket here is the fee schedule:

  • Initial assessment, 75 min – $200

  • 50 min session – $120

  • 30 min session – $60

I don’t offer sliding scale, instead I offer 30 min sessions as a more affordable option. This does require more active participation between sessions in order to maximize our time together.

How often will we meet?

 That all depends on your needs. I typically recommend at least 6 sessions to really address your concerns. But we can determine this together.

How do I know which service I need?

If you’re not sure, let’s jump on the phone and talk it through. I can help you determine what might be the best fit and we can always add or change things along the way.
