Rates and Insurance


Maintaining client confidentiality and treatment integrity is important to me. Clients frequently choose to pay out-of-pocket, as insurance companies require that I assign a diagnosis in order to receive coverage. I do not believe that every person who might benefit from counseling has a diagnosable illness. Out-of-pocket payment also allows for us to decide together the type of service and time frame that best suits your needs, rather than the insurance company making those decisions.
 
  

Should you decide that you wish to use insurance, I am affiliated with the following providers:

  • ACI Specialty EAP Benefits
  • Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • CareSource: Ohio Just4Me and Ohio Medicaid
  • Chestnut Global Partners International (CGP)
  • IMPACT EAP & Work/Life Program
  • Medical Mutual
  • Mutual of Omaha EAP
  • OSU Healthplan (Faculty, Staff, and Students)  
  • Value Options
  • Wellpoint EAP
  • Workplace Options EAP


 Rates

Initial session fee: $175 (individual) and $225 (conjoint)

Ongoing sessions: Range between $125 - $225

Sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes; 90 minute appointmens are scheduled upon request.

 

Student Rate 

Student rates are available for those who qualify and currently enrolled in an educational program.

 

Payment

All out-of-pocket payments (i.e., deductible, copay, coinsurance) are due at the time of service. Cash or check is preferred. Please add a 4% service fee to your payment for use of PayPal or credit card. Checks returned for Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) are subject to a $30 service fee plus an $8 bank fee. If your account goes to collections after 90 days of non-payment, all applicable fees will be added to your balance.

  

Cancellation Policy

My cancellation policy requires that you give 24-hours notice of cancellation. Missed appointments are billed at the full service/session fee...no exceptions.

  

Note: Unfortunately, I am unable to submit insurance claims for missed appointments or video-based services.
