Therapy is an investment in yourself and your mental health. Currently our rates are $115 per 50-minute session with options for longer sessions. We currently do not take insurance but can provide a super bill for reimbursement for your insurance. Out-of -Network reimbursement is something to talk with your insurance about to see if this is an option for you.
While A Day in the Life Counseling cannot serve everyone, we want to give people resources in any way that we can. If you cannot afford this investment please still feel free to reach out so we can provide you with resources for other mental health therapy options in our community.
Do You Offer Sliding Scale Fees?
As a part of A Day in the Life Counseling we like to hold 30% of our clients at sliding scale fees or pro bono. Currently, these spots are full. If this is an option you need we have a waiting list we can add you to.
Paying the full price helps make our offering of sliding scale fees sustainable and allows us to continue in this work. Know by paying the full self-pay price you are helping support us in our work with sliding scale and pro bono clients.
Why Choose Private Pay?
With private pay, you do not have to have an outside source limiting or controlling your therapy services. Many insurance companies provide a limit on how many mental health therapy appointments you can have in a year. With private pay, you can have as many appointments as is necessary for your growth and healing.
Insurance requires diagnosis. When using private pay you do not have to receive a diagnosis if you do not want to. A diagnosis with insurance usually goes on your medical record. Unfortunately, mental health diagnosis still has a stigma, utilizing private pay allows for a diagnosis to be kept as confidential as possible.
Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" to how much your care will cost.
Under the No Surprises Act, health care providers including mental health therapists are required to provide patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance to pay for their care an estimate of the expected charges for items and services including psychotherapy.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, hospital fees, and psychotherapy services.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Be sure to save a copy of your Good Faith Estimate.
