** I offer an affordable sliding scale (see below) to meet the needs of the diverse community that I serve. My intention is to make therapy in Ann Arbor affordable and accessible to anyone who is drawn to my practice. I strongly believe that finances should not be a barrier to psychotherapy, and strive to practice that belief in my business practices as an Ann Arbor Counselor and Therapist.
My normal fees:
$170 for your Initial Intake session, and
$140 for a regular follow up (45-minute)
Fees are set during the initial phone consultation or meeting. If you have circumstances that make this Ann Arbor counseling unaffordable, the fee can be adjusted based on your financial ability as well as my practice’s needs. I have a suggested sliding scale below for reference for clients who need this.
Feel free to call me at to discuss fees.

Also, please note that I do not bill insurance directly, but am happy to offer you a monthly receipt, which you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. My decision to not bill insurance directly has to do with protecting your confidentiality and the integrity of the therapy. However, if you would like to pursue insurance reimbursement, call your insurance company to find out about reimbursement rates for out-of-network psychotherapists. I would encourage you to consider the potential compromise of your confidentiality carefully.
