Fees & Insurance
50 minute sessions are $260, paid prior to the start of each session. I do provide documentation of our session(s) that can be submitted to your insurance company to request reimbursement for out-of-network services for therapy clients in DC and MD.
Coaching packages are available per request for parents everywhere (priced
at $399-$3999,99). Coaching and consultation services are not reimbursable expenses.
I work very individualized and keep my caseload small in order to be
responsive to those who are entrusting in my support.

Good Faith Estimate for Out-of-Network Care
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost
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.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate at least 1 business day before your next psychotherapy appointment or other service. I will deliver your Good Faith Estimate electronically using my Client Portal. You can also ask me, 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 (though fees are always paid upfront to avoid this issue).
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate or the dispute process, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 368-1019.
