Rates 
My standard rate ranges from $100.00 to $200.00 for a 55 minutes therapy session.  Fee reductions are available for clients without insurance coverage, depending on your overall financial situation. I will bill select insurance companies (Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicare, Out of Network).  Longer sessions, when mutually agreed upon are based an agreed upon hourly rate. 

 

Clients are expected to pay for services or copays at the time of service unless we make other arrangements.  Most major credit cards are accepted as well as cash or checks. 

 

Discernment Counseling rate is $150.00 per hour.  Typically, insurance companies would not be billed for this service.  The first session is usually a two-hour session.  Follow-up sessions are typically 90 minutes if needed. 

 

Appointments

Appointments are available on weekdays and Saturdays.  I can usually see people within a day if needed.   If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call (413) 519-1960 or email me with at least two times that I might be able to call you back.  Because email is not a secure method of communicating please do not leave any details of your situation in an email. 

 

Client Information

Everyone who enters this office for (therapy/counseling) needs to fill out an intake questionnaire, informed consent for psychotherapy, practice policies, notice of privacy practices and a financial responsibilities form prior to the first session. This can be done online and usually takes less than 10 minutes. You need to be sent a link to a client portal where you read and sign the forms.  If you prefer, this can also be done in the waiting room just before your first appointment.  If you plan to fill them out in the waiting room, please plan to arrive 15 minutes early in order to have enough time. 

 

Cancellations

There is no charge for a cancellation when there is at least 24 hours notice. If you fail to show up for a scheduled appointment or cancel with less than 24 hours notice, unless there is an unavoidable emergency, you will be charged the full fee for the session. No-shows and cancellation fees are not reimbursable by insurance.
