Fees for professional services
We are a "private pay" provider and full payment for professional services is required at the time of each office visit. Insurance is not accepted in lieu of full payment. However, upon request, we will provide a summary monthly statement of services for possible direct insurance reimbursement to you from you insurance company (see below for additional information regarding possible insurance reimbursement).
Dr. Brian S. Canfield, LPC, LMFT - $220 per hour
Irene LeBlanc Canfield, M.A., LPC, CMHC - $140 per hour
Kathryn Costello, M.A., LPC - $120 per hour
Tiffany Ishola, M.A., LPC, LMFT - $120 per hour
Estimating the cost of counseling
In estimating the overall cost of counseling, it is important to consider not only the hourly fee of the therapist, but the estimated length of the counseling process (anticipated total number of sessions). Although some forms of counseling and psychotherapy involve a lengthy course of treatment - requiring months or even years of treatment - we believe that counseling, in most cases, should be a relatively "short-term" process. Current clinical research on the outcome effectiveness of various approaches to counseling and therapy indicate that, for most client concerns, the systemic/cognitive-behavioral therapy models we utilize are often more effective than longer-term approaches - but at a significantly lower cost, overall.
Although each client is unique and multiple factors must be considered. Some clients may only require a single consultation session, while the needs of other clients may require a longer period of treatment. Based on your particular needs and circumstances, the anticipated length and overall estimated cost of counseling can be discussed during the initial consultation session.
We are a "private pay" practice and we do not accept insurance payment in lieu of full payment for services at the time of each office visit. However, some clinical services may be covered, in part or in full, by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Upon request we will provide you with an itemized statement which you may submit to your insurance provider for possible direct reimbursement to you. Please keep in mind that insurance companies vary greatly regarding the extend of coverage for marriage counseling, individual therapy, family therapy, and other mental health services. You may wish to check the extent of your coverage by asking the following questions:
- To what extent does my benefit cover the professional services of a licensed professional counselor or a licensed marriage and family therapist?
- Does my insurance benefit include marriage counseling or couples therapy?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?.
Cash, personal checks, and Credit cards (Visa, Master Card, and Amex) are accepted for payment.
If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified us at least 48 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session for the time reserved.
