Individual counseling and couples counseling are now only $85 per session. My previous in-office fee was $150 per session but due to reduced overhead expenses, I am able to offer my clients the same quality of therapy but at a much lower cost. For premarital counseling, I have premarital packages based on the number of sessions you choose and they run for approximately the same per session. Please see my premarital counseling page for packages and fees.
I do not accept insurance. Privacy, control, and medical diagnosis are the main reasons I don’t accept insurance. Insurance companies limit and monitor the number of sessions a client is able to have, dictate how a therapist is able to work with a client and require a medical diagnosis be made which becomes a permanent part of your medical record. Ethically, I have a hard time diagnosing someone with a mental disorder because most of my clients are not ill and deserving of such a label. Confidentiality is also weakened as they have access to your clinical notes and records upon demand. For these reasons and more, I have chosen not to accept insurance.
