For individual clients, I charge $140 per 50-minute session and $180 per 90-minute session. A $10 discount is provided if payment is made on or before the day of the session.
For couples therapy, I charge $180 per 50-minute session and $230 per 90-minute session. A $10 discount is provided if payment is made on or before the day of the session.
Remote Therapy and Consultations
My fees for teletherapy or consultations are the same as for face-to-face sessions. Payment is required prior to the session taking place and may be made by credit card or via Paypal.
If you would like me to provide therapy in your home, please contact me directly for a fees quote.
On occasion, I can offer fees based on a sliding scale starting at $70 per 50-minute session (or $60 if paid on or before the day of the session). These fees apply to therapy provided in my office, via telephone, or Skype.
In order to protect my clients' personal and confidential information, I have chosen not to accept insurance. This allows my clients and I to work together without restrictions imposed by insurance companies as to the number of sessions we may have or the modes of therapy we may use.
If you have insurance through a PPO, they may pay for therapy sessions with an out-of-network provider such as myself. If so, I will provide you with a monthly statement that you can present to them for reimbursement (or to apply to your annual deductible). If they do not cover the full cost of the services with which I provide you, you will be responsible for any balance due to me.
I accept the following forms of payment:
Check (payable to "Affirming Therapy")
- Debit card
Health Savings Account
Paypal (to AffirmingTherapyOC@aol.com)
While sessions are usually scheduled on a weekly basis, some clients are unable to make such a commitment. For those presenting with less-serious, non-critical problems, a session every-other week can be extremely beneficial. Clients may schedule a 90-minute session either once or twice a month. If this arrangement sounds appealing to you, please let me know and I will provide you with a schedule that meets your needs.
