Fees, Payment, & Policies
I am pleased to offer INDIVIDUALS a free, no obligation PHONE consultation for 20min so we might explore whether or not we might work well together.
Couples and groups are invited to make an appointment for a regular paid session to explore our compatibility, as are individuals who would like to meet in person.
Notice of Fee Increase: as of 1/1/2019, hourly rate goes up $10.
Individuals per 50min session
$140 cash or check $135 debit or credit
My sliding scale spots are currently full. If you'd like to be added to the waitlist (about 1yr), let me know.
Couples per 50min session

I do not offer sliding scales to couples.
I AM THE WRONG FIT for couples in which only one partner is driving the relationship toward non-monogamy. If, on the other hand, you are both "on the same page" about this, no matter what the page, I invite you to call for an appointment.
is accepted by personal check or cash, or by debit or credit card for a small additional fee. There will be a $25 fee charged for the first two returned checks; after that, I accept only cash from you. Payment is due at the end of each session.
As an out of network (OON) provider I do not accept insurance at this time. I will, on request, provide you with a monthly receipt for services rendered so you can submit it for reimbursement. I cannot guarantee your insurance company will pay your claim, so I strongly suggest you check in with them if reimbursement is important to you.
I have a standard 24hr cancellation policy: If you need to cancel a scheduled appointment you must notify me at least 24hrs in advance of the appointment time, with 48hrs required on 5p and 6p appointment spots (not including weekends) to avoid having to pay the full session fee. Appointments canceled with less than 24hrs notice, or 48hrs on 5p and 6p spots (not including weekends) will be charged full cost at the following session (if within the next week), or you will be asked to mail your payment in if our next session will be more than a week out.
