Healthcare costs can be confusing, especially when insurance is involved. We believe that clients have the right to transparency, and should feel comfortable bringing up questions about costs with providers. Please look over the information below, and do not hesitate to contact us with any additional questions.

psychotherapy rates

  • Individual therapy session (50-55 minutes): $200

  • Initial intake appointment (approximately 45 minutes): $250

  • Couples or Family therapy session (55-80 minutes): $200-300

  • After-hours / Weekend surcharge: $50

Sliding scale: Some clinicians offer a reduced rate to low-income families. If you think you might qualify, please let us know.

assessment rates

Assessment fees are generally determined after a brief phone consultation to assess your specific needs, determine the appropriate assessment measures to answer your questions, and discuss benefits and drawbacks of different assessments. Assessment fees will include a consultation, the administration of assessment measures, and report writing. A follow-up feedback session may also be appropriate, depending on the assessment. Below is a general range for some of the assessments we offer.  

  • Brief Intellectual / Personality Assessment: $350-500

  • Career Assessment: $350-500

  • Pre-Surgical Evaluation: $350-500

  • Infertility Evaluation: $350-500

  • ADHD / Learning Disorder Assessment: $500-1500


in-network benefits

We are considered in-network with Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield (PPO plans only), Scott White Health Plan, and the Southern Methodist University Student Health InsurancePlan (SHIP). We are also a Tricare Certified provider. 

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. For clients utilizing health insurance benefits, please note that you are responsible for all deductible and copay amounts at the time of session, as determined by your insurance plan. Before your first appointment, please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

  • 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, check, and major debit and credit cards (including most HSA and FSA cards) are accepted for payment.

out-of-network benefits

If you do not see your insurance plan listed above, you may have the option of receiving out-of-network reimbursement from your insurance provider. Most insurers cover a significant portion of our fees. If you decide to seek reimbursement from your insurance company, we will provide you with a detailed invoice (sometimes called a “superbill”) that will make this process simple and straightforward. It usually only takes a couple of minutes to submit a claim and your insurance company’s claims person can walk you through what steps to take if you have any questions. Please contact your insurance provider for specifics regarding your out-of-network mental health coverage.

good faith estimates

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under federal law, health care providers need to give patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. PHHW will ask all patients about their insurance coverage and their intent to use insurance for their services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a formal written Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
