Congratulations on taking the first step in seeking support to make changes in your life. I am honored to work with you and help you make the most of this investment in yourself. You will gain the most from therapy if you consider what you would like to discuss prior to visits. I may offer suggestions or homework for you to consider working on outside of sessions to help you achieve your goals if you are open to that.
Services may be covered by self-pay, in-network insurance, or out-of-network insurance. A debit, charge, or HSA/FSA card is required to be kept securely on file in your HIPAA-compliant electronic health record for payment of any co-pays, deductibles, or residual balances. This allows me to minimize monthly billings and supports keeping our world green by reducing paper and mail.
Co-parenting, court-referred, or court-ordered therapy is only available on a self-pay basis.
Rates, Fees & Insurance
Fees for Minors
In the case of minors, the parent who signs the fee agreement is responsible for the payment of services. Even in the case where the court determined that parents are to share medical costs, the parent signing the fee agreement is solely responsible for fees at Counseling Specialists, and Counseling Specialists will not split bills between parents.
Therapy Rates (not including co-parenting or court referred/ordered)
$225 intake session ( 53 minutes)
$160 follow-up sessions (53 minutes).
By requesting me to submit claims to your insurance, you acknowledge that your insurance provider may request your record and that you agree to my releasing your clinical records to assist them in claims processing.
I am contracted with the following insurance companies, but this is not proof of coverage as there are often several different company policies. I recommend you check with your insurance carrier to determine coverage and in or out-of-network status. You will be responsible for any deductibles and co-pays after your insurance has paid or if they deny claims.

Good Faith Estimates
Under the law, healthcare providers are required to provide clients without insurance or clients who are not using insurance an estimate of expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have a right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of non-emergency health care services, including psychotherapy services. You may ask your healthcare provider for a Good Faith Estimate before starting services or at any time during treatment. You may dispute the bill if it’s $400 greater than your Good Faith Estimate. Make sure to retain a copy of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions, more information, or steps to dispute your bill, please review your Estimate, or visit cms.gov.
Co-Parenting/Court referred/ordered therapy (available via telehealth only)
$280 each intake ( 53 minutes)
$250 follow-up appointments (53 minutes). This fee is typically shared equally between the parties if there are two in attendance.
