Insurance and Fees

Finances and a misunderstanding of how sessions are paid for is an occasional source of confusion for clients and can lead to some unfortunate delays or stops in therapy. This information is provided to help you make good decisions and avoid unnecessary hiccups.


All payments are due at the time of service, including cost for fees not covered by insurance (copays and deductibles).




I only accept Blue Cross of Kansas (not Kansas City) insurance. It is the client's responsibility to know if they have a deductible, copay or other out-of-pocket costs. Call the customer service number on the back of your insurance ID card, if you have any questions. It typically takes very little time.

Other insurances? I do not work with any other insurances, and I do not file out-of-network paperwork on behalf of clients. 

"Good Faith" Estimate

You have a right to a "Good Faith Estimate" verbally and in writing for services not covered by insurance or for those for which you choose not to submit a claim (Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act). Per Federal Law, you also have the right to dispute any fees that surpass the estimated cost for any medical service by more than $400. If you ever want to know how much something will cost, just ask!

My per session fees are as follows:

Initial session: $175 (approximately 1-1.5 hours)

Extended session cost after assessment: $165 (beyond 52 minutes)

Routine session: $150 (15 min-52 minutes). I am no longer able to offer a reduced rate or sliding scale.

Fees are per session

As always, feel free to let me know if you have any other questions. I look forward to meeting with you!
