Fees & Payments

Payments for co-pays or for services provided are typically due at time of service. We accept cash, check or credit card (Master Card and Visa).  There is a $1.50 payment convenience fee if paying by credit card or ATM.

Please note: Insurance companies won’t pay for missed appointments, so payment for any missed appointment is your responsibility. Most insurance companies won’t pay for psychotherapy and therapy appointments on the same day, so schedule these on two different days.

Standard Individual/Couple/ Family Therapy Sessions are for 45-50 minutes.

Group Sessions vary from 60 or 90 minutes, depending on the nature of the group.

We accept private pay, most insurance plans and some Employee Assistance Plans (EAP).

For All Self-Paying/Private Paying Patients

This notice is to inform you that you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.  Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance, or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.  You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.  Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
