Rates and Forms of Payment


Current rates as of January 2018:

Initial session/diagnostic evaluation (60 minutes): $175

Individual therapy session (50-60 minutes): $160

Consultation (with family member(s), (50-60 minutes): $160

Life coaching session (50-60 minutes): $160 (not reimbursable by insurance)

*Some flexibility in rates may be available for those with financial need. 

A number of payment options are available:


I accept cash, checks, and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover).

Health Insurance

Currently, I am in-network with Highmark Blue Shield (including most out-of-state Blue Cross/Blue Shield plans), Aetna, Medicare, and Optum/United Behavioral Health.

*If you would like to use insurance, check with your insurance carrier to verify your coverage and benefits.  This is important, because although your primary insurance may be with one company (e.g. Blue Cross/Blue Shield), portions of coverage such as mental health benefits could be with a secondary insurance company (which I may not be in-network with).

**Please note that I am out-of-network with Independence Blue Cross (IBX) plans, including Personal Choice and Keystone Health Plan East. IBX uses a separate company for mental health benefits that I am not contracted with.

Out-of-Network Benefits

Many insurance plans offer out-of-network benefits, which may cover a substantial portion of my fees.  Contact your provider to verify.

Flexible Spending/Healthcare Savings Accounts

If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Healthcare Savings Account (HSA), these are also accepted.

Employee Assistance Programs (EAP)

I am credentialed with Carebridge EAP, Aetna EAP, and Optum/United Behavioral Health EAP.  EAPs offer a set number of free counseling sessions per year for a variety of common concerns.  These may be used on their own or perhaps prior to using insurance coverage.  Check with your employer to see if you have EAP, and if so, contact your provider for a referral.
