Rates, Insurance & Forms
The current rates for individual, couple, and family therapy are:
- $175 per standard session (50 minutes)
- $310 per extended session (90 minutes)
Please note that any other services including but not limited to consultation with other professionals, phone consultations, and school consultations will be charged on a pro-rated session basis. Please contact us with any additional questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you!
While we do not bill insurance companies directly, at your request we can provide a statement of services for you to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. If you are unsure about your coverage, please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
Why don’t we accept insurance?
- Some insurance plans limit the number of sessions clients can attend.
- Some insurance plans only cover specific mental health diagnoses.
- Diagnoses are listed on your medical record.
- Some insurances require therapy to be a “medical necessity.” This means:
- Your symptoms have to be severe enough to qualify for a diagnosis.
- Your symptoms have to be causing an issue in one or more areas of your life.
- You must have a diagnosis that is covered by your carrier.
What should I ask my insurance carrier to understand my coverage?
- What is my coverage for outpatient mental health services?
- What is my yearly deductible and has it been met?
- What is the reimbursement rate for an out-of-network provider?
- How many therapy sessions are covered in a calendar year?
- Are there any limits to my coverage?

This will help ease you into therapy, and allow as much time as possible to be spent focusing on you. If you are unable to print and complete the forms prior to your appointment, please arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment so that you may complete them in the office.

Family Therapy Center of Bethesda, LLC, accepts multiple forms of payment including check and all major credit cards.
You are required to notify your therapist by phone or email at least 24 hours in advance of a missed session. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice and “no-shows” (cancellations without notification) will be charged for a full session. Please be aware that you are responsible for arriving on time to your appointments. As a courtesy to all clients, if you are late, the session will still end on time.
