Affordable, Quality Mental Health Care

New Patient Initial Appointment cost is $225, and follow-up options with Membership plans or as-needed care.
Psychotherapy & Medication management may last several months, which is why we recommend a membership plan – it’s cost-effective and simplifies transactions to allow the focus on care, and has several value-added advantages (including more direct access, discount medication and labs). Non-membership pricing is available too.

Frequently Asked Questions

For a full FAQ list, click here.

Do we take insurance?

No, we do not take insurance. We use a Direct Care model that works when Providers elect to work with the Patient directly rather than through a Third Party [Insurance]. So, cash payment for services is coordinated directly with the patient and medical records are not submitted for reimbursement by the provider to a Third Party.

Can you prescribe medication?

Yes. Our mental health professional offers treatment plans with medication, ensuring that your psychiatric medication are effective and safe.

What can I expect in a therapy session?

That it will be YOUR session. I will be your guide on your mental health journey, with YOUR goals in mind. I am not here to tell you that everything will be ok (unless you would like that), but instead to listen to your concerns and use evidence-based mental health treatment options to help you along the way. Your sessions will always be a safe place to talk, judgement-free, and transparent.
