Rates & Insurance
Rates for remote online or face-to-face sessions at my Boise office:
- $150 per 55-minute couples private pay session
- $150 for an initial assessment session
- $125 per 50-minute individual session
- $135 per 60-minute individual session
Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted at the time of service. Most clients opt to have a card on file with me that I can use to collect session/co-pay/co-insurance after each appointment.
Please note that the vast majority of medical insurance policies do not reimburse for marital or couples therapy, as it is not considered to be “medically necessary.”
In Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, the relationship is the focus rather than any individual pathology; i.e. psychiatric diagnosis. Given this, I do not bill claims to medical insurance for marital or couples therapy. If you have a Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account, you may be reimbursed with the proper documentation that I can provide.
I do accept several insurances (listed below) for individual therapy sessions where there is a legitimate psychiatric diagnosis. Other medical insurance plans may reimburse you on an out-of-network basis. I can provide the necessary documentation so you are able to submit a claim to your medical insurance, Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account. To determine your insurance plan’s coverage, contact your insurance company directly.

If you are not able to come for your scheduled therapy appointment and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will need to pay a cancellation fee equal to half the scheduled appointment rate to continue counseling. I will allow one same-day “free pass” as we are all human and sometimes get sick/have emergencies/forget about appointments.
You've taken the first steps in this journey.
The next step is making the first appointment. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions and I hope to have an opportunity to meet you and hear your story.
