Payments & Insurance
Currently, I do not accept any insurance plans. I have learned from previous experience that the demands and restrictions placed on the counseling relationship by insurance providers often make it more difficult for therapy to be successful. I would be happy to provide a printout of the dates you attend sessions, and you are free to submit that to your insurance company if you would like to do so.
My current fee for services is $160 / clinical hour (a “clinical hour” in the counseling field is usually considered 50 minutes in length). I believe this is a competitive rate for a licensed psychologist with over 20 years of clinical experience. I work hard to keep that fee below many of my colleagues with similar training and experience.
I realize that you have many choices for pre-marital services, and you may well have the opportunity to receive these services for free from your pastor or church leader. Many of these professionals are well-trained in their areas of expertise, but they may not have the years of training, supervision, and experience to provide the highest level of pre-marital counseling. In addition, some of the services offered may be educational in nature, rather than services that are individually tailored to your unique relationship.
I believe that clients deserve to get an excellent return on their investment in counseling. I will ask you to give me feedback, on a regular basis, in regards to my work and the success of the counseling process. This allows me to continually reassess and revise the work I do to assure you the best services possible for the time and money you invest.
