Rates & Policies

 

I am available for face-to-face, HIPPA-compliant web-based therapy sessions, or phone sessions. I am also happy to offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to help you to determine if I am the right match for you. 

Rates
The initial 75 minute evaluation will be spent getting to know each other, and determining the best course of action. Subsequent therapy sessions will be 50 minutes.

Initial Diagnostic Evaluation (75 minutes) – $245
Individual Psychotherapy Session (50 minutes) – $180

Supervision
I offer individual and group supervision for social workers in Virginia looking to become Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs). Fee is dependent on whether individual or group supervision is requested.

Payment
Payment is due in full at the time of service. I will accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.

Insurance
I am considered an out-of-network provider as I do not accept insurance. Many insurances will partially reimburse for out-of-network services. I will provide you with a monthly statement of services that you can submit to your insurance company for partial reimbursement of session costs. You will be required to pay me in full at the beginning of session and you will still be responsible for all charges incurred. Please contact your insurance company directly to verify out-of-network coverage for outpatient mental health services prior to your first session. When you contact your insurance company:

1.   Find out if they will reimburse you for seeing an out-of-network mental health provider.
2.  Ask your insurance company at what percentage they will reimburse you for seeing an out-of-network provider.
3.  Find out if you have a deductible and whether it has been met.
4.  Ask if you need a referral from your primary care physician. 

Missed Appointments and Cancellation
You will be charged the full session fee for missed or cancelled sessions with less than 24 business hours advance notice, regardless of whether you can reschedule within the same week.
