Services and Fees
Individual and group therapy is a great opportunity to begin exploring your struggles and begin the process of self-discovery and healing in a safe and confidential space. Individual and group therapy is a place to tend to symptoms of anxiety and depression as well as trauma, grief and loss, identity development, and major life transitions.
Fees for Traditional Counseling Services start at $125 (depending on therapist and length of session)
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
EFT is all about attachment which focuses on emotion in the here and now. Simply put EFT is about how we turn toward and away from our most secure relationships in times of distress and helps us understand and work through our cycles of disconnection. When I meet with couples the most frequent complaint is "I feel like we keep having the same fight over and over." EFT is based on the assumption that we all desire to feel safe and connected with our loved ones and works to help individuals better connect with their partners to increase this safety.
Fees for Emotionally Focused Therapy start at $200/ 50 min
Brief Behavioral Therapy For Insomnia (BBT-I)
A structured 4-6 session therapy protocol to improve one's sleep habits when their normative sleep pattern has been disrupted for more than a few weeks. BBT-I treatment is a weekly protocol initially and is offered after a full assessment of your current sleep difficulties to determine if you are a good candidate.
BBT-I treatment costs $500 for the first four weekly 30 min. appointments after the initial $200 intake assessment. This is inclusive of weekly sleep log check-ins in addition to structured appointments. Ongoing appointments after session 4 are billed at $175/ 50 min session.
A form of psychotherapy that helps people heal from symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. We have two clinicians trained in EMDR.
EMDR is integrated into traditional counseling treatment as appropriate and is billed at traditional counseling rates for EMDR trained providers
Fees and Payment Information
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
We believe therapy is an investment of time, energy, and resources by us and our clients and we enjoy talking with prospective clients about ways to balance these. We have found that the lower the cost of services, the less priority people place on this service which does not help you as the client or us as the clinician. However we do recognize that many cannot afford therapy services. When you call to schedule your appointment you will be provided information about fees for service and reminded that we do not accept insurance. We believe my rates are competitive but are open to hearing about your unique situation and will make accommodations if possible. Also, during your course of therapy, if your financial situations changes and therapy becomes unaffordable, please inquire about ways we can manage fees for service. If we can accommodate your needs, we will.
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
We do not directly participate with insurance plans. There are a number of reasons why this is the case and we are happy to have a conversation with you about fees for service. However, I will assist you if you wish to use your insurance by giving you receipts to submit directly to your insurance provider. Many insurance companies will pay for a portion of outpatient mental health services. You should check with your insurance company representative to find out specific requirements and limitations of this coverage. Payments for services received through Affirmative Counseling and Psychological Services, LLC are ultimately your responsibility.
At Affirmative Counseling and Psychological Services, LLC we accept cash and check as well as all major credit cards (AMEX, Visa, Mastercard). Payment is expected at time of service.
If you find that you need to cancel an appointment, please give as much notice as possible so that we can schedule others that may be waiting for services. You will be personally charged for your appointment if not canceled at least 24 hours in advance other than for emergency reasons. If more than two appointments are cancelled within 24 hours future sessions will need to be paid 48 hours in advance via PayPal payment. If you no show for an intake appointment or cancel your intake appointment within 24 hours of your appointment time you will not be able to reschedule without first paying the full fee for your missed appointment and your rescheduled appointment.
