    Fees and Insurance

    The following information is provided to ensure both therapists and clients have a transparent understanding of the business aspects of their collaboration. While these policies are generally non-negotiable, exceptions can be made in cases of hardship. Flexibility will be exercised whenever possible to address any client concerns or challenges. Please do not hesitate to seek clarification on any unclear points, and feel free to ask for additional information or share any questions and concerns regarding these matters. 


    Fees vary depending on the therapist. To inquire about a specific therapist’s fee structure, please utilize the “Contact Us” page.

    Payment is due at the time of service, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed upon. Accounts should be settled in full at least monthly. Please note that fees may be subject to periodic adjustments.

    Please be aware that we may offer flexibility in cases of financial hardship to ensure continuity of therapy while clients reorganize their finances.


    Certain therapists within our practice accept insurance plans such as CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, Aetna, United HealthCare, and Cigna, while others do not. To verify if a therapist accepts your health insurance coverage, please refer to the “Our Team” page.

    If your chosen therapist does not accept your health insurance, you will be required to pay for services directly and then seek reimbursement from your insurance company. However, we are more than willing to assist you with any necessary steps in submitting bills for reimbursement.

    Missed Appointments

    Cancellations made less than 48 hours before the scheduled appointment will incur a 50% cancellation fee. Missed appointments (no-shows) will be billed at the full rate. Please note that cancellation fees and charges for missed appointments are the responsibility of the client and must be paid out-of-pocket, as health insurance does not cover these circumstances.
