My fee is $150 per 50 minute session.
Therapy appointments are scheduled weekly, especially in the beginning weeks of treatment. Sessions are scheduled with me directly. You must inform me of any cancellations at least 24 hours in advance by calling 972-591-3167 and leaving a voicemail or emailing [email protected] to avoid any charges.
Failure to cancel a session without 24 hours notice will result in a missed session fee of $50 per missed appointment. I keep the fee lower than the full session rate and apply it to all late cancellations to remove myself from determining acceptable reasons for a miss. Please note that this fee is not covered by insurance and is subject to change.
If you cancel within an hour of the appointment time, “no show,” or forget about an appointment, the full $150 charge will apply and will be billed to your card on file. I reserve your time for you and cannot use the time to make phone calls or start other work when I am sitting and waiting for you to arrive. Therefore, I must charge my full fee.
Please be on time for your appointments. Your session starts at the time scheduled and ends 50 minutes from that time. If you are late, please understand that I must end the session as scheduled so that I can complete administrative tasks and start on time for the next client. Payment for services is an important part of any professional relationship. It shows that you value your healing and personal development. I accept cash, checks, and credit cards, and payments are due at the beginning of each session. I am happy to keep a credit card on file for you and simply run it at each session. I have a form to complete for that if you would like that option.
At this time, I am not contracted with any insurance companies. If you are filing for out of network benefits with an insurance company I can provide you with a superbill to submit to your health plan for reimbursement. If you are using health insurance to cover all or a portion of the cost of treatment, please know that insurance providers require a mental health diagnosis and that services be “medically necessary” to use your benefits. There are many reasons to come to therapy and not all could arguably be considered “medically necessary.” Please consider this before deciding to use your insurance. In addition to requiring a diagnostic code, your insurance company is also provided with your service dates, and may inquire about your treatment progress as a matter of determining eligibility for payment. Insurance does not pay for missed appointments or late cancellations.
