Flexible Session Structure

Not everyone wants or needs a session every week. For your convenience I offer standard weekly sessions as well as sessions every other week and also sessions on an as needed basis.

Insurance

Insurance does not pay for PreMarital Counseling per se but often PPO's will reimburse you some amount for Couples Therapy. I don't take insurance as payment but at the end of 6 sessions I can provide you with a CMS Super Bill which you can submit to your insurance plan in order to pursue reimbursement on your own. I am not an "in network provider" for any insurance company. If you have more questions about this feel free to email me.

Payment

Credit cards/PayPal welcomed. Discount for paying with check and an additional discount when paying by cash. Payments are made at the time of service or in the case of the PreMarital Package Deals payment is due for the full amount at the end of the first session.

Cancellation Policy

24 hour notice via text or email to avoid paying full session fee.

Rates

I have two kinds of rates. The first is my standard hourly rate as a therapist which is $185 per hour. My second rate is for certain PreMarital Package Offers. These can be purchased by the engaged Couple or make a lovely Pre-Wedding gift.




































































Refund Policy

Packages are not refundable but sessions never expire and can

be delayed or transferred.

Online payments

In addition to office payments direct online payments are also

Couples Tune-Up and Maintenance Package

One 45 min session a month, purchase 4, 6 or 8 sessions

Four 60 minute sessions PreMarital Counseling via FaceTime

Sometimes when couples work hard to learn new communication skills it takes time to lock them down.

This package allows you to check in once a month for maintenance of new relationship skills.

These monthly tune-ups can be both a bridge after a period of intensive change and a form of prevention against slipping back in to old patterns.


This package can be purchased by new or ongoing clients and the sessions can be used at your convenience and my availability. The only requirement is that the entire amount be Pre-Purchased via check, credit card, Pay Pal or cash.

Platinum Package

90 minute sessions PreMarital Counseling purchase 3, 6 or 8 sessions

For clients who prefer extended visits, I do offer 90 minute sessions. Over the years many clients have shared their frustration at being limited to an hour. Some people need the extra time and some people just prefer it. What ever the case is for you, if you purchase the benefits of the extended package know that you can use these sessions at any time you want, they don't have to be every week. It's possible to have longer sessions less often via this package if that will be of benefit to you. The only requirement is that the entire amount be Pre-Purchased via check, credit card, Pay Pal or cash.
