For clients who choose to private pay, my rates are $135/45 minutes or $180/60 minutes.
As of 2021 Hot Mess Counseling no longer accepts insurance. You may request a superbill (a receipt) that you may submit to your insurance company for full or partial reimbursement if you have any out of network benefits with them. Please see the FAQ page for more information about why Hot Mess Counseling has come to this decision.
Payment is due at the beginning of our session. I keep a credit card on file securely through my EHR, Simple Practice, and charge the card on file at time of session for any money owed for that session. This saves time at every session allowing the maximum time for therapy work. For parents who would like to split the fee, I can easily keep 2 cards on file and split the fee each session.
I have a 24hr cancellation policy. If you do not provide at least 24hrs notice to cancel you will be responsible for a $135 for cancellations within 24hrs of appointment time and $180 for a no showed appointment (or cancellation within 1 hour of appointment). I will reschedule a no-show or late cancelled intake one time, but the client is responsible for reaching out to initiate the rescheduling process.
Frequency of Meetings
Though most people do attend therapy weekly, it is certainly not necessary or possible for everyone. I would be glad to see you as frequently or infrequently as you find helpful (or, if using insurance, as much as can be proved to be medically necessary).
