Costs

My current hourly rate is $75.00 an hour.

Your first session will be 2 full hours (face-to-face-time) – $150.00 for individuals and couples. Weekly appointments are encouraged for at least 4 weeks (1 hour each). Once improvement is recognized and the client is benefiting from applied changes, sessions can be held biweekly. Many find that it is beneficial to attend once a month, once confidence is built just for accountability, encouragement, and positive reinforcement.


I also have packages for employer-required anger management and addiction basics. Additionally, I have a special rate for teens so that parents can manage the extra cost of having a counselor available. For details, feel free to give me a call. Please note that I will reduce the rate according to the ability to pay and the number of sessions required.
