You sliding scale rate will be determined based on your household income. Confirmation of your income may come from pay stubs, bank statements or tax returns depending on your employment status.
2. How do I receive a sliding scale rate?
When you contact us please mention that you would like to be on the sliding scale so that we may determine availability before scheduling. Our therapists have a maximum number of sliding scale clients and it is not guaranteed that you will be able to be placed. However, our interns are ALWAYS accepting sliding scale clients with rates ranging from $50-100 per session. That’s a $75-125 rate reduction compared to local rates.
3. What if I don't want to be included in the sliding scale?
All clients who are not on the sliding scale will pay the full rate for their sessions or use insurance. Not all of our clinicians accept insurance. You may read each therapist’s bio to see which insurances they accept. Your rate may be different depending on which therapist you are working with. At the time the maximum full rate is $175 per session for individuals. Our rates vary for couples, family and group therapy.
4. What are your payment options?
If you are using insurance, we will bill directly to your insurance. If you are a private pay client, we accept credit, debit cards and cash.
