Billing and Insurance
I don't currently accept insurance, but I can provide documentation if clients wish to submit to an insurance company for "out of network" benefit coverage
Fees: My session rate is $250, and I offer discounts for prepaid packs. Sessions typically last about 70-80 minutes. Research tells us these longer sessions are most effective, especially for couples. I offer a Free 20-min Consultation to ensure we are a good fit. Not on insurance panels; I do provide superbills for PPO insurance.
