FEES & PAYMENT OPTIONS
Please call for rates: 816.396.6002
FEE FOR SERVICE
Fee-for-service therapy has the highest level of security and confidentiality, as only a judge may request my client records via a subpoena. Insurance companies are not involved, thus your mental health diagnosis will not become a part of your medical record and stays only between you and me. This choice protects you from acquiring a pre-existing behavioral health condition on your medical record.
I am currently cash pay only; however, I am willing to negotiate fees.
I accept cash, checks and credit cards. Payment must be made at the time of service.
Because the appointment time is reserved for you, if you must cancel your appointment, it is important for you to do so at least 24 hours prior to the appointment time. Late cancellations are subject to the full fee of the session.
