In accordance with the No Surprises Act that went into effect January 1, 2022, all healthcare providers are required to notify patients and potential patients of their federal rights and protections against "surprise billing". The purpose of this Act and of this page is to protect you from unexpected medical bills.
If you use health insurance, the No Surprises Act protects you from unexpected out-of-network medical bills for emergency room visits.
If you don't use health insurance, usually, providers much give you a good faith estimate of how much your healthcare will cost if you request one or schedule services at least three business days in advance.
You may be able to dispute your bill if it's at least $400 more than the estimate you were given. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
If you use insurance for your services, your insurance plan will dictate the cost you are responsible for. We will work with you to understand your benefits, but you are ultimately responsible for paying your portion in accordance with your plan's agreements.
If you do not use insurance for your services, we will provide a fee schedule to you at the time of your free consultation, and before scheduling any paid services. Our fee schedule for out-of-pocket clients is based on a per-session cost, and the anticipated length of session. You will know the exact cost of each session ahead of your appointment. Our session rates will never change with less than 30 days' notice to you.
Due to the nature of psychotherapy being an active, ongoing relationship without predefined length to accomplish your goals, our disclosure to you is the price per scheduled service (individual session). We cannot predict or estimate what you will spend for the entirety of your care, but are happy to discuss frequency and recommendations for treatment at any point in our relationship if the work we are doing exceeds your budget or is not proving effective in addressing your needs.
