Insurance and Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs)

Therapy services are often covered by private health insurance or through an employee assistance program (EAP). Please contact your health insurance or EAP to find out your specific coverage. EAP’s normally require prior authorization. Each plan is different according to benefit coverage. You may contact customer services on the back of your insurance card to ask the following questions:

  • What is my benefit coverage for behavioral mental health services?
  • Do I have a deductible?
  • Do I have unlimited number of visits?
  • What amount is covered by insurance and what portion is patient responsibility?
  • Do I need prior authorization from my primary care physician?

Reduced Fee

Clients paying cash or “out of pocket” for all services receive a 25% discounted rate. Reduced fee for services are available on a limited basis.


Cash, check and all major credit cards accepted for payment.

Cancellation Policy

Once an appointment has been scheduled, that time is then reserved and held specifically for the client. Therefore, if the client does not show up for his/her scheduled appointment, and does not notify the therapist at least 24 hours in advance that they are unable to keep the appointment, the client becomes fully responsible and required to pay half the cost ($75.) for the session held for them.
