Fees for Therapeutic Services
My fees for individual, couple, and family counseling are:
$180 per 50-minute session
$270 per 75-minute session
$360 per 100-minute session
Additional services offered at a pro-rated rate (e.g., case consultation, gender-affirming letter writing for transition-related care)
I typically see clients weekly and space out therapy over time.
Do you take insurance?
No, I do not bill insurance and I take payment at the time of service. However, I can provide receipts for you (superbills) to submit to your insurance for out-of-network reimbursement. The process can be easy, depending on your plan.
Can I use my out-of-network benefits?
Yes! Depending on your plan, you may have out-of-network benefits. This means that if you want to see a therapist outside of your insurance company's network of providers (like myself), you may have partial or full coverage. Typical reimbursement ranges from 60-100 percent of the cost of the session.
Once you pay my full fee after your session, you can mail your insurance company your superbill (an itemized statement of services). Just make sure you tell me that you want to receive superbills. After you submit a claim form and your superbill, your insurance will generally send a check directly to you. The amount you will be reimbursed depends on your plan.
How do I know how much my insurance company will reimburse me for therapy?
The best way to determine this is to call your insurance and ask about your out-of-network benefits. You can follow these steps:
1) Call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card and give them your information. Ask for an explanation of your out-of-network benefits for mental health care. You may want to ask questions such as:
How much will my plan cover for appointments with an out-of-network provider for the codes 90791 (50-minute intake session) and 90837 (50-minute psychotherapy session)?
Do I have an out-of-network deductible?
How close am I to reaching my deductible?
Do I need to mail a claim form and a superbill to receive reimbursement? If so...
Where can I find the claim forms?
What address do I mail the forms to?
Are there any other steps I need to take?
How long will it take to receive my reimbursement check?
2) Ask me for a superbill (monthly or as often as you would like). I can email it to you. Print the superbill and claim form and mail it to the address your insurance company gave you. It typically takes about 30 days to receive reimbursement.
The process can be fairly simple!
Good Faith Estimate
In compliance with the No Surprises Act, I am required to give all clients information about the Good Faith Estimate of expected charges for services rendered through Deeply Rooted Therapy.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate of the estimated cost of therapeutic services. This Good Faith Estimate is based on my standard fee schedule, which is also described above in the “fees” section.
Under certain circumstances of the No Surprises Act, clients can enter into a dispute resolution process, if the cost of services rendered is $400 or more above the estimated cost of services. Therefore, clients are provided with a general estimate of the cost of therapeutic services for one year of weekly therapy at the onset of therapy. This is meant to provide a general guideline for how much therapy may cost, so clients can budget for long-term therapy, if needed. However, clients may elect to meet with me more or less frequently, based on their specific therapeutic needs.
Please note that providing a Good Faith Estimate for an individual’s mental health journey is in some ways, unrealistic. While my session fees are transparent, factors such as one’s frequency of treatment, readiness to change, openness to therapy, stressors, resiliency factors, therapeutic goals, and the severity of therapeutic concerns all affect the pace at which one may improve and thus, the cost of treatment. In contrast to receiving acute medical services at a hospital (e.g., treatment for routine vaccinations or a broken leg), psychotherapy cannot be as easily quoted, given the complexity of these factors.
