*Michele strives to keep professional rates and fees affordable for all clients. She desires to help those seeking therapy rather than hindering their ability to receive treatment due to a financial burden. Therefore, Michele will work on a “sliding scale” as a professional courtesy to make fees lower for those in need. In this case, the fee will be discussed with the client and agreed upon at the time of the 1st session. *

Cash, Check, Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover

Insurance:

Michele will help clients complete necessary paperwork for reimbursement. This is considered “out-of-network” coverage for mental health. You may also utilize flexible health spending plans that can be available through your employer.
