Services and Fees

The following fees are for private pay and out of network services. If you have insurance, your insurance company will determine your co-payment amount. Please see below for types of insurance accepted.

Initial brief consultation: Free

When you first contact In Your Prime Counseling, you will receive a brief email or phone consultation. This is used to briefly discuss the issues you would like to address and schedule an initial appointment and arrange for you to get your intake paperwork.

60 minute session: $130

This includes a minimum of 52 minutes of work with a clinician that includes measuring the progress towards your goals and reviewing your treatment plan. The remaining time of the hour to provide resources, schedule the next appointment. By your third session we will have developed an individualized treatment plan that we will review and update each session.

30 minute brief session: $75

A brief therapy session is available at the discretion of the clinician. Typically these sessions are reserved for consultation on acute issues you are experiencing.

Sliding Scale: In Your Prime Counseling accepts a limited number of clients on sliding scale, income based, fees. If you feel that you would benefit from our services but cannot afford them and do not have insurance, please contact us to discuss your situation. We want to work with you and have many ways to ensure that you can access necessary services.

In home therapy: If you have barriers to accessing the community, we may be able to accommodate you in your home depending on your geographic location. Please contact us for more details.

Making Payments


In Your Prime Counseling accepts payments in the form of cash, check, and all major credit cards. Payment is due by the end of each appointment.

If you have insurance, your co-payment amount will be determined by your insurance company. All co-payments are due by the end of each appointment.

For out of network or self pay customers: Many people prefer to pay for services directly for a number of reasons. Sometimes, the amount of your deductible is more than you will ever meet in therapy. Some people prefer to keep the sensitive subjects discussed in therapy private from their insurance company or off of their medical records.

If you have insurance, you may still be able to bill your insurance company for services with In Your Prime Counseling as an Out of Network Service. Insurance companies may reimburse you directly, the client, for services from out of network mental health clinicians.

If you want services at In Your Prime but feel like you cannot afford our services at this time, please contact us to discuss your situation. I am happy to see if you qualify for our sliding scale fees or can help you to identify someone who can provide services to you.
