Each session will last approximately 45 minutes but can be adjusted to fit your particular needs if necessary.
We bill through your insurance so the only cost to you will be your co-pay which is different for each insurance company.
Your co-pay is due at the time of service. If you do not have insurance or would prefer to do self-pay then the charge
will be $90.00 per session and will be collected at the time of service.
If you require a Saturday appointment then a deposit equal to your co-pay must be paid in advance, prior to the day of your
appointment. If you deposit is not received then we will assume you want to cancel your appointment.
If you arrive at your appointment then your deposit will be credited towards your session co-pay and you will not owe any
more money for your session.
If you cancel any appointment 24 hours in advance then no penalty will be charged. If however you cancel within 24 hours
you will be charged a full session fee. If you used a prepay option, you will not be refunded. If you did not prepay, then
you will need to pay for your session before scheduling another appointment.

Our counselors work with children from the ages of 5 to 18. Our counselors use play therapy techniques in their sessions with children.
For this reason, sessions with children who would best benefit from play therapy techniques need to have their sessions in our office.
Our counselors can use play therapy to diagnose and treat conditions such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, grief, self-esteem
issues, childhood ADHD, adjustment disorder, trauma and other stressors of life.
