Fee Schedule & Insurance Coverage:
I do full one-hour sessions, which includes time for payment and scheduling your next appointment. The rate is $100/hour. Aetna clients pay less of a rate because I am in-network with Aetna and the company reimburses me for full one-hour sessions.
I am not accepting new clients with BlueCross/BlueShield insurance policies at this time, January 12, 2020.
All clients with no insurance or other insurances pay $100 per hour. I can file claims electronically for many clients with other insurances, so that the expense counts against your deductibles. Some of these companies will eventually begin to reimburse me directly for part of the fee, to lower your out-of-pocket costs, once you’ve met your out-of-network deductible).
You can pay me the day of our session via cash, or check. For all services, payment is expected on the date of service. You will be assessed a $1.00 penalty fee for each day that payment is delayed.
Monday through Friday: Noon to 8PM.
No Saturday or Sunday hours are available.
I offer individual sessions which incorporate principles of both Psychotherapy and Spiritual Direction, or clients can just opt for Spiritual Direction work. I call this Transpersonal Psychology, because we can work on the psychological ego issues, as well as teaching you about your deeper nature as Awareness.
Letters and reports that need to be written are charged for by the quarter-hour at the rate of $100/hour.
Please note: I no longer do drug and/or alcohol evaluations, nor do I work with clients who are involved in the criminal court system.
No Obligation Introductory Consultation
An initial consultation is available, without obligation, to those planning to do weekly or bi-weekly sessions, or monthly spiritual mentoring sessions. After our meeting, we will decide if we will continue working together. The introductory consult is billed at the usual rates, as above.
For Special Discretion, Private Pay Without Using Insurance Coverage
Some clients prefer to pay me privately, rather than having the intimate details of their lives available to their insurance companies and the whole network of people who might see those records. However, standard confidentiality exclusions apply. If you’re imminently homicidal or suicidal or if you’re abusing an elder or child, I must report this to the appropriate authorities.
