How much does counseling cost?

    • Co-pay can range from $15-$40 per session.
    • Please check with your carrier for your benefits and co-pay amount.
  • Other insurance carriers:
    • Dean and Kristin are out-of-network and provide a receipt with insurance coding.
    • Clients file their own claims for possible reimbursement.
    • Please check with your carrier for your benefits and reimbursement amount.
  • Kelsey Chomik has a reduced rate of $90 and provides a receipt for insurance coding.
    • Please check with your carrier as interns are often not covered by plans.  We hope the reduced fee will offset the cost of this expense.

How long will I be in counseling?

  • At the first session we:
    • Determine goals for therapy in a treatment plan.
    • Set the approximate number of weeks/sessions.
  • Average length of counseling in my practice experience:
    • Results cannot be predicted or guaranteed, but several of my clients average 12-24 weekly sessions.
    • Some individuals/couples just need feedback about a specific issue and others seek longer term progress.
