  • Rates & Insurance


    Individual: $200 for initial intake sessions (2) then $175 per 45-50 minute session or $200 for any session that extends to 51 – 60 minutes.

    Insurances accepted:

    • Blue Cross/Blue Shield (PPO, HMO and Indemnity)
    • Optum products (Optum, United Behavioral Health, Mass General.Brigham, etc.)
    • Tufts – Commercial Plans Only
    • Harvard-Pilgrim

    Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

    I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

    • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
    • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
    • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
    • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

    Couples: $200 for initial intakes (2) then $175 per 45-50 minute session; $200 per 51-60 minute session and $225 for sessions between 61 – 75 minutes. Sessions longer than 75 minutes require scheduling in advance and will be priced as two sessions.

    The relationship counseling we will engage in does not meet medical necessity criteria for insurance coverage. Insurance coverage requires an identified client and a mental health diagnosis; in our sessions the relationship is the client, not any one partner, and no mental health diagnosis is being treated. Each partner understands that our work is elective and relates to strengthening friendship and intimacy, repairing past hurts, improving communication, gaining skills in conflict resolution and creating shared dreams and meaning for which billing insurance would be fraudulent.


    Clients are expected to place a credit card on file. Any charges related to a session will be charged to the card on file as will any cancellation or missed appointment fees.

    Cancellation Policy & Fees

    If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 48 hours beforehand. If you do not cancel greater than 48 hours before your appointment, do not show for your appointment or arrive at your appointment more than 15 minutes late, you may be charged a cancellation fee of $125. Exceptions to the fee are granted for medical/veterinary emergencies for client or immediate family or illness severe enough that a telehealth session is not possible (client agrees to substitute telehealth session for in-person session for less severe symptoms). I only hold my clients to standards that I would need for myself. Note that last minute work-related cancellations are not considered to be an emergency; most of us would inform an employer if there was a conflict with a medical appointment and these sessions are considered to be no different.
