Fees and Insurance



Private Pay

It takes time and focuses to assist people in learning about themselves. The goal of removing blocks to achieving goals which lead to a more vibrant quality of life. Some Insurance Companies have large deductibles or limit your sessions to medical necessities. Some people prefer to pay out of pocket for therapy, so insurance companies do not interfere with processes. Our private pay fee is 150.00. We do have a sliding scale for those who need assistance.

Late Cancelations

We  do understand that challenges arise and at times it is hard to make a scheduled appointments. We do need to charge 45$ for a late cancelation which is less than 24 hours in advance or the same amount if you do not show up for your appointment.  We need to do this because others clients are on a  waiting list for cancelations and our clinicians do need to get paid.
