The cost of therapy can vary by clinician. Clinicians set their fees based on their skill sets, expertise, location, and other factors. The No Surprises Act is a new law meant to protect consumers and ensure that you do not have any surprise medical bills.
My teletherapy practice is located in California. I have a vast skill set in that I provide evidenced-based trauma treatments such as CPT, EMDR and IFS. I also have expertise in treating racial stress, trauma, and PTSD. My services are cash pay only meaning that you pay for services yourself. I do not accept insurance. I do however, accept ComPsych Guidance Resources EAP.
Psychological Evaluation (initial visit): $300
Individual Therapy: $200 for 50 minutes
Your initial visit with me will consist of a 60-90 minute Psychological Evaluation in which I will ask you a lot of questions about your present concerns, symptoms, life history, and their impact on your current functioning. I will also ask you about your goal(s) for treatment. We will then discuss treatment options. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and decline future treatment. You can terminate therapy (at any time) as you are under no obligation to continue treatment.
My cancelation policy is that you provide me with at least 24 hours notice prior to cancelling your scheduled appointment to allow me time to fill canceled appointment slot with another individual who may be waiting for an appointment.
I charge a $100 fee for any missed appointments and any appointments not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance. This fee will be automatically charged the day of the missed appointment or late cancellation. If I must cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours notice, I will provide you with a $100 discount off your next appointment.
Payment for services must be made at the time services are rendered. Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Cards are accepted for payment.
