60 minute session
Also referred to as the diagnostic clinical interview
The purpose of the initial visit is to go over case history, concerns, and to develop a treatment plan and give recommendations on the next step. This can include either therapy, an evaluation, or sometimes both. If an evaluation is recommended, the doctor will give you a price quote and you can determine if you want to proceed with testing. This initial session is also known as the clinical diagnostic interview and it starts the process for an evaluation. Sometimes an evaluation is not needed, and we can make a plan to start therapy services after the initial visit once we know more about what would work best for your situation. You are welcome to call our office to speak to our staff to best determine which psychologist or therapist may be the right fit for your particular needs.

50 min sessions with a Psychologist (Ph.D) or experienced LPC
50 minute sessions with a Licensed Professional Associate (under doctoral supervision)
Our licensed psychologists do every part of the testing. The rate includes number of hours needed for testing, report writing, and a one-hour feedback session go over the results with you in person. (Psychological testing can be billable through "out of network" benefits".
Please note that educational testing (e.g., learning disabilities) is not billable under any insurance plan. This means that insurance companies deny coverage for dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia in the private practice setting. (Learning issues for some reason are not considered medical reasons by insurance)
Including testing, report writing, and result discussion. Evaluations range from $580 to $2500, with final prices set after a consultation based on the required testing hours
Note: Psychoeducational evaluations (testing for learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, or dyscalculia are not covered benefits under insurance plans. This is because the public school system can provide these types of evaluations. Psychological evaluations (including testing for autism) are usually covered but they may not cover the full amount of the testing cost. Every insurance plan is different so we encourage you to check with your insurance about reimbursement rates.
How do your rates and service compare to other providers?We pride ourselves in high quality services that is individualized for your specific needs. Our evaluations are very thorough, and we don't cut corners. Our pricing reflects individual time with the psychologist, a full written report with recommendations, and a feedback session to go over the results with you. We often hear from clients that our evaluations were very comprehensive, that our recommendations were individually tailored, specific, and useful. We often hear at our feedback sessions how glad they were to have chosen us and that they feel better about what direction to take now that they have clearer answers. It's why we get many word of mouth referrals from other families who have been here before.
Do you take insurance?Although we are currently out of network with all insurance providers, at your request we can provide a detailed medical receipt that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. You are encouraged to check with your insurance directly to inquire about what is covered on your specific plan.
Is testing for Learning Disabilities covered by my insurance?Unfortunately, no. There are no insurance plans that cover educational testing. Why? This type of testing can be done in the school setting. In the school system, you can request testing for dyslexia. If you are concerned with other aspects of reading (e.g., reading comprehension), math, or writing, you are asking for a Full and Individual Evaluation (FIE). This is done to determine if your child meets criteria for a learning disability through special education. All of this is at no cost to you. However, the school must agree that testing is needed. The process takes 2-3 months once approved.
Are Psychological Evaluations covered by insurance?Usually yes. Since we do not take insurance, any testing we conduct will be paid by you out of pocket. We can provide you with a detailed medical receipt (with CPT codes) to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement with an "out of network" provider. We don't guarantee any reimbursement, but we can help you with the information to file a claim for any benefits for which you may be eligible. Contact your provider if you want to know if, and what amount, you can be reimbursed.
