LJ Therapy Pricing Fee Structure

My rate is $120.00 per session. I accept cash, check or charge.

 

Sliding Scale: I do offer a sliding scale for a select number of clients, who currently cannot afford my fee. This is on case-by-case bases. Please contact me for more information and to discuss your situation, as nothing is more important then your mental health and well-being.
 
Insurance:I do not accept insurance but let me explain to why and the pitfalls of insurance. I order to bill insurance I MUST DIAGNOSIS YOU WITH A MENTAL DISORDER and SHARE THIS WITH YOUR INSURANCE. Everyone can use the safety and security of a therapist at some point in their life. This does not mean that you have a mental disorder or sick, but insurance companies do not see it that way. If you are seen under your insurance, I must diagnosis you as sick and am working towards a cure in order to bill. A mental diagnosis now goes in your medical record and can make getting future insurance very expensive. Insurance companies read your reports, which I feel, COMPROMISES CONFIDENTIALITY! An insurance monitor will read your report and assess how well our work is going and decide if they are going to continue payment. I think how well the therapy is going should be something that you and I decide – not someone who doesn’t know either of us. For these reasons, I have chosen not to accept insurance.
