Whenever you're ready, call or email me to set up a free 15- minute phone consultation. We'll discuss what's bringing you to counseling at this time, what working together will be like, and I'll answer any questions you have before starting.
fees and insurance
Each therapy session, individual or couples, lasts approximately 55 minutes. The initial appointment is a time for us to get to know each other, and for me to gather information from you about your background, what brought you to therapy, and what your hopes and goals are in therapy.
In my private practice, I am not currently taking insurance, but you may be able to get reimbursed for my services as an out-of-network provider. Please check with your insurance company about your coverage for an out-of-network provider. If you would like to use your insurance coverage, please see me at: Mindful Therapy Group (http://www.mindfultherapygroup.com/karen-simms-ma-lmhc).
If for some reason you cannot come to a scheduled session, I request that you either cancel at least 24 hours in advance or pay a missed session fee of $75. However, I will not charge you for a session missed due to a sudden illness or emergency (work emergency not included).
My fees are as follows: • 55-minute psychotherapy session, individual: $100. • 55-minute psychotherapy session, couples: $115. • 1 hour individual professional consultation: $80 • 1 hour group professional consultation (2-3 participants): $40/each participant • 1 hour supervision: $90 • Missed or canceled appointment (with less than 24 hour notice): $75
Cash, check, or credit cards are accepted. Payment is due at the time of service.
