Couples Therapy. I occasionally agree to provide Couples Therapy, depending on the relationship issues and the fit between you (the couple) and me. However, Couples Therapy is typically not a billable service from the point of view of insurance companies. Insurance works by billing for an individual’s services. In Couples Therapy, I consider your relationship the primary unit of treatment. Thus, I care about both of you, which leaves working with insurance companies generally not an option in my professional opinion. I would be glad to discuss this special situation in greater detail with you in a face to face meeting. My rate is $150 for a 60 minute Couples Therapy session. For each additional 15 minutes, there would be an added $25 charge. So, a 75 minute couples therapy session is $175.00 and a 90 minute session is $200. While the cost is out of pocket, it may be worth the time and resources to get your relationship on the right path for you as individuals and as a couple.
Individual Psychotherapy Fees
$120 for 45 minute psychotherapy session
