Assessment: While assessment fees are calculated based on your specific referral question and reduced/bulk pricing, comprehensive privately-funded psychoeducational evaluations typically range from $2700 to $5000. I ask for half of the payment upon meeting for the first testing session, and the second half when you receive the written report (approximately two weeks from the last date of assessment). Independent Educational Evaluations are to be authorized and paid for at public (district) expense, and require comprehensive and longitudinal interpretation.  Fees for IEE evaluations are at a flat rate and will be provided to the contracting district. In either case, should I be called as an Expert Witness or to testify in fair hearing, my hourly or flat rates for preparation, travel time, and testimony are higher as these events are usually on late notice, often require cancellation of other clients, and are extremely stressful!

Consultation and Counseling: Consultation and counseling/training fees are flat rate fees of $170 per hour, unless you are participating in a group class. Group rates are specific to the service offered, therefore you will need to inquire about the costs for the specific group you are interested in.

Are these services covered by insurance? As mentioned in the “About Me” section, I have chosen not to be a provider on any healthcare panel, and therefore do not accept insurance payment. However, I can provide you with the appropriate information/superbill so that you can be reimbursed from your insurance company.  If you intend to seek reimbursement, let me recommend that you obtain pre-approval for out of network services before meeting with me and getting clear feedback about the reimbursement rates.  I am happy to give you some ideas about talking with your insurance company before you make those calls.

“That’s the real problem with kids who struggle with learning … Some kids feel like they’re stupid. I want them to know that they’re not. They just learn differently. Once they understand that and have the tools to learn in their individual way, then they can feel good about themselves.”
