In cases of financial hardship, I can arrange a lower fee for a limited period.


Fees are paid at the end of each session. I accept checks, cash, and Venmo. My preferred electronic payment is Zelle, which you should be able to do through your bank. If you are going to use a check, my preference is that you have this made out before the session.

You are responsible for billing your insurance unless arrangements have been made with me. I will provide you with the necessary paperwork to do so. No matter what form of payment you are using, you are fully responsible for any balance for therapy charges (including missed or canceled sessions)

Cancellations & Missed Appointments

If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please do so with 48 hours’ notice. This allows me to offer that hour to someone else. If you do not show for your appointment, or if you cancel or reschedule without 48 hours’ notice, you will be charged the full fee for that hour. Please note that as a general policy that most insurance and managed health care providers do not reimburse for missed or
canceled sessions. Nor do they usually allow you to apply the charge toward your deductible or co-pay.canceled sessions. Nor do they usually allow you to apply the charge toward your deductible or co-pay.
