I believe, like everything in life, you get what you pay for and therapy is no exception. My fees reflect my training as a counselor and psychotherapist, and regular clinical supervision as I pursue my LPC in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I also engage in regular training; including post-graduate education in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and psychoanalytic-psychodynamic therapies.
HOWEVER I OFFER A SLIDING SCALE...because I want you to experience good therapy from a qualified therapist in the Center City Philadelphia and Main Line areas. Please contact me as I am happy to discuss payment based on your income. I also take credit card payments and many of my clients find this helpful.
If you are a student, I offer especially low rates, depending on any income, to enable you to be in therapy; it is a great time in your life to stop and reflect as you consider your life ahead ahead and critical decisions about relationships and careers.

About Fee-for-Service Counseling
Fee-for-Service Counseling may be a great option for you when you find a therapist you'd like to work with, yet he or she is not in-network with your insurance. Although this means a greater financial commitment from you, it does come with several benefits that might be worth the additional out-of-pocket expense. By choosing fee-for-service counseling, you are putting yourself in control of your treatment by being able to choose the therapist you want to see instead of being placed on a waiting list, which many in-network providers utilize. You also have the benefit of receiving higher quality care, as the counselor is not dictated by additional time-consuming insurance documentation. The minimal reporting to outside sources also provides a greater level of privacy and confidentiality when dealing with your protected healthcare information.
Another option to consider with fee-for-service counseling is that of out-of-network benefits. Not all insurance plans have this benefit, however plans which do provide this coverage can often make counseling just as affordable as seeing an in-network provider. You can find out whether your insurance plan offers out-of-network benefits simply by calling the customer service number on your insurance card and following the prompts to learn your benefit information from the automated system.
I trust this information is helpful to you and ask that you give me a call if you would like more information on whether or not I am the best fit for you.
