The standard fee for a 50-minute session for individuals is $175. The standard fee for a 60-minute session for couples and families is $200. I also provide sliding scale fees based on income. I reserve several spaces in my caseload for special cases at a reduced rate - please inquire if you feel you may qualify.
*Please note: Melissa's rates may differ. Please contact her for additional information.
A typical session is 50-60 minutes, but can be extended by prior arrangement that will include a prorated fee.
I provide counseling on a fee-for-service basis. In addition, I accept some insurance. Please contact me to determine if your insurance is accepted.
What Forms of Payment Are Accepted?
I currently accept cash, check, credit card, or PayPal.
I accept the following insurance:
- Cigna - Anthem Blue Cross - Blue Cross/Blue Shield - Health Net
If your insurance is not listed, most insurance companies will reimburse their clients if they submit a receipt or services received. If needed, I'd be happy to provide you with a receipt and help you with any additional paperwork.
How Do I Get Started?
Please feel free to contact me for a FREE 15-minute consultation! During the consultation, we will discuss your current situation and the type of therapy you are looking for. I will be happy to answer any additional questions you may have about my experience, approach, education, or knowledge about a particular issue.
If you feel ready to start, we can schedule your first appointment. I will then ask you to read, print, and complete the intake paperwork before the first session. This is to ensure that we do not spend valuable time during our first sessions filling out paperwork. You can access these forms here.
