Fees and details
Please make checks payable to “Tessa Suppes Counseling, LLC.” Mastercard and Visa are also accepted (see credit card form here).
Tessa’s fees are as follows. (Note: A courtesy discount is given for payment by cash, check or ACH bank debit.):
- $202 for a 50 minute individual session
($195 cash/check/ACH payment)
- $233 for a 60 minute individual or couples session
($225 cash/check/ACH payment)
- $280 for an 80 minute session
($270 cash/check/ACH payment)
First sessions for individuals and couples are 80 minutes. After that, we can assess the frequency and length of future sessions. Typically, couples meet for 80 minute sessions and individual appointments are 50 minutes.
I do not take insurance and am not in any insurance networks. Because I am a licensed professional counselor, my professional services do qualify for patient reimbursement under most insurance plans. Coverage varies widely from policy to policy, so you may want to review your benefits to determine your expected reimbursement.
Typical reimbursement is 30-60% of the “allowed” fee, once your deductible is met.
The procedure code used for couples that is generally reimbursable is called “conjoint psychotherapy.” This procedure code is 908.47. Use this language when inquiring with your insurance about reimbursement for couples counseling.
Cancellation and inclement weather policy:
Since the scheduling of an appointment involves the reservation of times specifically for you, a minimum of 48 hours notice is required for re-scheduling or canceling an appointment. Late cancellations as well as no show appointments are charged at full fee.
