Insurance & Fees

My fee for the initial intake appointment is $230. All subsequent sessions are $190 for 55 minutes, $165 for 40 minutes, and $120 for 25 minutes.

I am in-network with the following insurance companies:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield (including the State Health Plan)
  • Carolina Behavioral Health Alliance (CBHA)
  • Aetna

For all other insurance companies, I am out-of-network. You are responsible for checking your mental health benefits and to see what your copay is as well as whether you have to meet a deductible. Occasionally, insurance companies require prior approval and have session limits, so these are also questions you need to ask a representative.

Note that although I accept insurance, private pay is encouraged if possible. There is always the chance that I will be audited which means your records are not private. As mentioned above, some insurance plans place caps on the number of sessions and also what therapies can be reimbursed. In addition, some individuals have reported that using insurance for their mental health needs have restricted their ability to get certain healthcare and life insurance plans in the future.
