The cost for a 50 minute therapy session is $130. This cost applies to both in-person, and virtual sessions. If we will be using your insurance, sessions will be billed at their allowable rate. Therapy is an investment in yourself and your future. Consider the value of peace, confidence, emotional well-being, and improved relationships. For more information, check out THIS ARTICLE about the importance of investing in therapy. With 20+ years of experience, I recognize that I am not the cheapest therapist out there, but my goal is to be the best.
I have limited openings for coaching. The cost for a 50 minute coaching/consultation session is $130. HERE is a helpful article about the difference between therapy and coaching.
Please note that my therapy services are limited to clients within Utah and Nevada, and cannot extend across state borders. It's important to differentiate between coaching and counseling: coaching primarily focuses on personal and relational growth rather than addressing psychopathological issues. While therapists can engage in coaching, the reverse is not true – coaches do not provide therapy. It's crucial for coaching clients to maintain their functional lifestyle and emotional stability throughout the process.
Should I determine that coaching might not be the most suitable approach (for example, if signs of psychopathology emerge, indicating a need for therapeutic intervention), I will assist you in locating a licensed therapist within your own state or country.
I want to emphasize that coaching services are not designed to diagnose or treat mental disorders, nor are they a replacement for counseling provided by a licensed professional in your state or country. By scheduling a coaching session, you acknowledge and accept that this arrangement involves coaching and does not constitute mental health therapy.
Payment can be made by check, cash, credit card, or Venmo. Many clients elect to do private pay for increased privacy, confidentiality, and flexibility of choice, but I am also able to accept SelectHealth, United Healthcare, EMI, Cigna, Aetna, GEHA, and Optum insurance. For therapy sessions where I am out of network, I am happy to provide a Statement of Payments or Superbill that you may use to seek reimbursement from your insurance company. HERE is a helpful article on how to use a Superbill for insurance reimbursement.
Good Faith Estimate
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don't have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
