RATES & INSURANCE
I primarily focus on individual therapy for adolescents (middle and high school) and adults.
Therapy sessions are generally about 50 - 60 minutes in length.
Our first session is an intake assessment to help me get a good overview of who you are, and it serves as a launching pad of what goals to focus on in our work together. In our second session, we will begin working on goals for an action plan to help guide our time.
Appointment reminders are automatically sent out via email 2 days before your scheduled session. I request that any cancellations or changes be made at least 24 hours ahead of your appointment time, otherwise it will be considered a missed appointment, for which there is an $40 fee.
Payments can be made with all major credit cards, Apple and Samsung Pay, Flex Spending Accounts, check or cash.
It is your responsibility to understand your insurance benefits prior to scheduling an appointment.
Please contact your insurance provider to understand your unique plan benefits. No two plans are alike! Whether you are using in-network or out-of-network benefits, these questions will help guide you to understand if therapy is affordable:
First Question to Ask: Does my plan cover outpatient in-office mental health sessions?
Second Question to Ask: Do I have a deductible that needs to be met before benefits kick in? If Yes: How much is it? What is the per session cost for a 60 minute session (CPT code 90837)? || If No: Do I have a co-pay for sessions? How much is it?
If your insurance is not listed in the left-side column, then I am not a participating provider in that network.
Out of pocket
Some people prefer this option for privacy reasons. My rates are competitive for the Rockville/ Washington DC area. My standard fee is $150 for an intake assessment, and $120 for subsequent sessions, which qualifies as a medical expense that can be claimed on your taxes. I can offer a few clients with a sliding scale/ discounted fee in the event of financial distress.
