The first session should be scheduled for 90 minutes. This is considered your intake session in which we will review your information form, explore goals for therapy, begin to establish a therapeutic alliance, and discuss any other pertinent information regarding your personal intentions for growth and change. This session is billed at $150.00.
Individual sessions after the initial intake appointment are billed at $100.00 and last for 50 minutes. If you would like to schedule a longer session, please let me know. 75 minute sessions are billed at $125.00 and 90 minute sessions are billed at $150.00.
Payments are due at the time of service. I accept cash or check. Although I do not currently accept insurance, many of my services are covered under most insurance plans. I am happy to provide you with a coded super bill at the end of your session that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please contact your insurance representative regarding mental health coverage, out-of-network providers, and reimbursement rates prior to your appointment.
I am able to offer a limited number of appointments on a sliding scale basis. These sliding scale fees are reserved for individuals who are experiencing a financial hardship. Please speak with me about this prior to scheduling your first appointment. Sliding scale payment arrangements are reassessed every 3 months and are subject to change based upon the fluctuations of your financial circumstances.
Cancellations and Rescheduling
If you need to cancel or reschedule, please let me know as soon as possible. A 24 advance notice is required in order to avoid being billed for the full amount of the session. Same day cancellations and no shows will be billed at the full session rate. Exceptions are made for emergencies (i.e serious illness/injury, death in the family) and is at the discretion of the therapist.
As we all know, life is unpredictable and emergencies do arise from time to time. I do not provide emergency on call services or after hour coverage. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis after regular business hours or on the weekend, please call GCAL (Georgia Crisis Access Line) at 1-800-715-4225. They have mental health counselors available 24/7. If you are experiencing a life threatening emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
