Good Faith Estimate
Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health 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 expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

My current private practice rate is $200, sliding scale $185-200 per therapy hour, depending on income and discussing mitigating factors. This session rate reflects not just the direct face-to-face time in session, but time and expertise that I spend outside of session for the day to day behind the scenes work of providing care in my private practice. This may include preparing for sessions, paperwork, billing, research and additional trainings that go into providing you with high quality care.
While I am not currently on any insurance panels, I am happy to discuss what your out-of-network benefits may cover and ways to find out from your insurance. I can provide a superbill at your request for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. If you have a Flex Spending Account (FSA) through your employer, clients have been successful in using those funds to pay for services.
As an out-of-network provider, I have partnered with Mentaya to help my clients save money on therapy. Use this tool below to see if you qualify for reimbursement for my services.
