All payments are due at time of service and we do not offer payment plans. Often initial consults are $25 more than the hourly rate. This is due to out of session time spent consulting with other providers. Below are pricing ranges for our therapists:
Provider TypeCost Estimate
Students with Masters degrees working towards a Psy.D. or Ph.D.$100-$110/hour
Masters Level Clinicians$115-$150/hour
Licensed Psychologists$150-$210/hour
Clinic Directors$210-$300/hour

Our practice does not participate in any health insurance or managed care company plans, including Medicare.  We do accept FSA and HSA cards. We suggest that you contact your insurance company to find out what your deductible and co-payment are for “out-of-network mental health services for a psychologist.”  Often, insurers will pay a certain percentage of what is “reasonable and customary” after you meet your deductible. 

It may be helpful for you to ask what the term “reasonable and customary” means as it relates to a 90791 code (initial evaluation), 96130 (assessment) 90837 (hour long individual therapy session), and 99354 (extender code). It is also helpful to ask if these rates apply to any licensed clinician or only to a licensed psychologist. If you are receiving telehealth services, a GT code may be included in those categories. This will help you understand how much your insurance company will ultimately reimburse you, and what your out of pocket expenses will be before you begin treatment.

For those unable to afford treatment we offer an income based reduced fee program. We use federal poverty guidelines, household size and household income to determine appropriateness. The application (found here) will be processed once our Intake Coordinators have spoken with you.  You can reach out to them at (502)338-0608.  This must be received and approved prior to scheduling.

You can reach our Intake Coordinators by calling (502) 338-0608 ext. 2.  Please leave us a message with your name and phone number, and you can expect a return call within 48 business hours.
