Fees:

I am not currently contracted with any insurance carries. I am happy to provide you with a superbill to submit for reimbursement. The billing codes used are 90792 for an assessment and 99214 for most follow-up appointments.

  • Initial Consultation: $500 for one 90-minute assessment:

    • Additional time may be required for late arrival, incomplete forms, or complex cases

  • Follow-up appointments: $100 - $150

    • 25-minute appointments: $150

      • Recommended for established patients early in treatment, any patient who has questions about medications, is experiencing side-effects, would like to discuss making changes to their medication regimes, needs to discuss recent stressors, or to discuss alternative medications.

    • 15-minute appointments: $100

      • available by recommendation only

      • ideal for patients who are established and satisfied with their medications
