Value of Psychotherapy

Costs of psychotherapy

Our current rate for psychotherapy is $200 per weekly session, and $250 for the initial evaluation.

We are in-network for:

If you have one of those insurances, we will bill your insurance directly and you will only be charged for any co-pays, co-insurance, or deductibles included in your plan.

If you have a different insurance, we will charge you directly after each session, but will submit electronic claims to your insurance company as a courtesy, to help you get reimbursed for any covered portion.

Cancellation policy

No-shows and appointments canceled less than 24 hours from the scheduled appointment time will be charged at the full cash session rate. This cancellation fee is not covered by insurance.

Frequency and duration of therapy

Since therapy has been shown to be most effective when scheduled at least once per week, we are only able to accept patients ready to commit to weekly meetings. While the length of therapy varies widely depending on your personality, needs, goals, and personal history, most people accomplish their goals and report lasting change after 10-18 months of continuous therapy.

No surprises act notice:
If you are paying out-of-pocket for therapy, the total annual cost of weekly appointments will be $200 x 50 = $10,000.

Costs of psychological assessment

While we are able to provide some psychological testing to augment therapy for our insurance-based patients, we are not able to provide full standalone psychological assessments under insurance due to limitations in coverage.
