Private pay

Our masters-level clinicians charge $80 for the intake session, which is the first session; and $70 for each therapy session after that. This is a rate of pay that matches the reimbursement rate from many insurance companies, and it keeps private pay therapy as accessible as possible. Our clinicians who accept insurance will follow the copays and deductibles that are listed in your specific insurance policy. When you contact us for services, we are able to check your insurance policy to see what your specific copays and deductibles are, and we will inform you of any costs to you that your insurance company has set in your policy. All clinicians charge a $45 late cancelation/missed appointment fee – this is if you cancel your appointment in less than 24 hours before the appointment is scheduled or if you miss the appointment.

Private pay for outpatient behavioral health therapy and case management is available, please contact us directly at appointments@hopeandmeaning.com
