Fees & Payments

Counseling is an investment in your wellness, relationships, and future.

Individual Sessions

Standard Fee: $60 / 50-minute session (as of 1 January 2018; fees will increase to $80 / session in 2020)

The fee must be paid at the beginning of each session using cash, check, or credit/debit card. I do not accept insurance.

A sliding-scale fee is available for limited time for clients who are in financial hardship due to qualifying situations. Examples of situations that qualify for a sliding-scale fee include medical disability, unemployment, or income below the federal poverty line.

You may be able to reduce overall costs by attending counseling less frequently, such as bi-weekly or monthly, and combining counseling with self-help programs/books or support groups.

Refunds

Counseling is a service that requires counselors to invest a significant amount of time in each client. Counselor spend time with clients in session and work on client cases (e.g. notes, looking up topics, finding resources, etc.) outside of sessions. The results of counseling also require that client’s invest a significant amount of time and energy into attending sessions, practicing exercises and skills between sessions, and developing openness to change. Because client involvement is such a significant part of results, fees are paid to the counselor for the counselor’s services, not for the client’s results. Thus, no refunds shall be issued for a client’s dissatisfaction with results.

Pre-payment of services is not allowed to avoid the need to provide refunds for unused services.
