private pay rate
Therapy is one of the most valuable investments you will ever make!
(I'm happy to share the reasons many therapists do not take insurance and choose to bill private pay.)
Private Pay Rate for Individual Therapy
$125 • 55–60 minutes • I offer a limited number of 60-minute sliding-scale appointments based on income.
$175 • 85-90 minutes
I accept debit, credit, HSA and cash payments. Card payments are processed the day service is provided. An active debit or credit card is required to be stored on file with SimplePractice (a HIPAA compliant platform) prior to the first appointment.
PLEASE NOTE: In the state of Colorado, mental health clinicians are prohibited from charging private-pay fees for services provided to clients with Medicaid. Clinicians are subject to severe penalty if this regulation is violated. Please DO NOT seek my services if you have Medicaid. Failure to disclose will result in immediate termination.
Appointment cancellations must be communicated by phone or text only, no less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled session time. Cancellations communicated within the 24-hour window of a scheduled appointment WILL BE CHARGED the full session fee, unless the appointment is rescheduled for within the following three business days. Services will be discontinued after three (3) cancellations without a 24-hour notice, within a 6-month period.
Not arriving/appearing for an appointment is a "no-show". Arriving/appearing 15 minutes or more after the scheduled appointment time is also considered a "no-show" and the session will not be conducted. The client WILL BE CHARGED the full session fee for any "no-show". Therapy services will be subject to discontinuation after three (3) "no-shows within a 6-month period.
Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical 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 bill for medical items and services.
• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or 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.
