Fees and Extended Health Benefits

We charge a fee for our services. Your private health insurance may cover some of the fee. Check with your plan or insurance provider to see if therapy is covered. Your therapist will discuss the fee with you during your first session. Clinical interns on our staff allow us to offer a limited number of therapy sessions at a reduced fee.
