Financial Considerations & Client Fee Information
The standard fee for weekly coaching, counseling, and therapeutic services is $179 per 50-minute individual weekly session. Bi-weekly sessions and couples/family sessions may be slightly higher due to additional costs and time. We often recommend 75-80 minutes for couples, and the fee for the extended session is based on the hourly rate pro-rated.
PLEASE NOTE: We require a valid credit card on file. We do accept Debit, FSA, and HSA for services but also require a credit card on file to cover costs not funded by FSA/HSA or debit.
INITIAL ASSESSMENT FEE: The initial assessment consultation is a standard fee for ALL clients: $249 per individual, $349 per couple. Compassion Funding, if applicable, can be applied to subsequent visits.
NOTE: So that we may help all families and individuals, we also offer a payment plan for the initial assessment: Individuals: $100 at time of service and two additional monthly payments of $75. Couples: $200 at time of service and two additional monthly payments of $75.
INSURANCE: Although we cannot file insurance for you, we will provide a “super-bill” to file with your insurance plan. Please contact your insurance carrier to determine your specific coverage. Please understand that out of respect for donor funding,
Compassion Funds CANNOT be used in conjunction with insurance claims. Therefore, if you are planning to file for reimbursement through your insurance company, we request that you pay the standard fees.
COMPASSION FUNDING: If you cannot afford the standard fee, we do offer consultations and coaching at a reduced fee. Since we depend on the support of the community to help fund the availability of these reductions for assisting individuals who cannot pay the customary and standard fees, these fees cannot be used in conjunction with insurance claims and no diagnosis is provided. In addition, COMPASSION FUNDING applies only to individual or couple consultation sessions and cannot cover additional charges such as materials, assessments, books. Any additional charges will be reviewed in advance with you. Please honor and value these contributions in stating your income level. If your financial circumstances change, we will adjust the fee to correspond to a higher or lower income level. To maintain the trust of our donors and supporters, from time to time we may require verification of household income. If someone other than yourself is paying for your sessions, your fee is determined based on the income of the person responsible for payment. In the case of minors whose parents are jointly responsible for the bill, the fee is determined based on the combined income of both parents, even if the parents do not reside together.
(MAY NOT BE COMBINED WITH INSURANCE BENEFITS.)
