Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

  • What is my deductible and has it been met?

  • Am I responsible for co-insurance or a co-payment?

  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

  • Is approval or referral required from my primary care physician?


The customary fee is $175 per 45-minute session with additional pre-planned time on a pro-rated basis, but clients rarely pay this full amount. I will submit claims to your insurance company on your behalf. Insurance companies pay some portion of this fee based on contractual arrangements. You may need to make a copayment or pay coinsurance and/or meet an annual deductible as specified in your plan. I do not bill for any difference between contracted rates and the customary fees.

I am currently in-network with several companies, including Medicare, Tricare, Medicaid, Security Health Plan, Optum/United Behavioral Health (including Medica), Anthem BC/BS, Health Partners, Humana, Multiplan, WEA Trust, Group Health Cooperative of Eau Claire County, Cenpatico and Aetna. Please verify that I am in-network with your plan. If you are with Badger Healthcare through Group Health Cooperative and live in Eau Claire, Dunn or Chippewa County, you will need to contact their contracted provider.

Evaluations and other services may not be covered by insurance and may be billed directly to you.

Reduced Fee

If you are under age 26 and not covered by your parents' insurance, or have an insurance plan with a high deductible, you may be eligible for a reduced rate to make mental health care more affordable for you. Please contact the office for details. Be prepared to provide proof of insurance and age.
