Rates & Insurance

My standard fee is $100 per 55-60 minute counseling session.

I am in-network with the following insurance plans:

  • Husky / Medicaid / State Insurance
  • Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Cigna
  • Beacon Health Options
  • If you have another private commercial insurance, check to see if behavioral health services may be billed out-of-network. You are responsible for checking your benefit coverage.
  • Note: As a professional counselor, I am unable to accept Medicare or Medicare supplement plans, due to federal laws which limit the eligibility of certain professions. If you have both Medicare and another insurance, such as Medicaid, your services may be covered by the secondary insurance (subject to authorization). 

Sliding Scale:  I have a limited number of reduced-rate slots available for those who may not be able to afford my full fee. To see if you qualify for the sliding scale program, visit Open Path to learn more and sign up.

**If you are not insured and have low income, you may be eligible for Medicaid and may apply at any time during the calendar year. To see if you qualify, visit Access Health CT or call (855) 805-4325.**
