To make it easier, our fee structure is listed below for each practitioner.
Fees for Dr. Phillips
Therapy is an investment—possibly one of the most important ones you’ll make right now. As such, I believe that it will be worth it to take this leap right now. The fee for individual sessions is $175 for a 55-minute appointment. If you are experiencing financial hardships, I do offer a sliding fee scale which can be discussed at your first appointment and is based on need. I also offer a sliding scale option for educational professionals.
To help make therapy accessible, I work with most PPO insurance plans on an “out-of-network” basis. This means that you would pay for services directly and I would bill your insurance plan on your behalf so you can receive a reimbursement check for a percentage of your out of pocket costs directly from them. Additionally, most HSA and FSA accounts can be used for therapy services, and we accept all major credit cards.
I am also in network with Anthem Blue Cross insurance, although I only have a limited number of insurance spots available at this time. For those who choose to use their “in-network” benefits, please be aware that your insurance company requires a clinical diagnosis to compensate for services which becomes part of your permanent medical record. Additionally, Anthem Blue Cross can dictate session limits, and they regularly conduct random audits of files as allowed for by law, so your clinical notes can be subject to review. For these reasons, I believe that paying privately for services is the most secure route if you have any concerns about this.
For online therapy services using Doxy.me, I use a secure PayPal option to ensure a simple payment process for my clients. Teletherapy services are provided at a discount rate of $150 per session, but these services are often not covered by major insurance plans at this time.

Jessica Vickers, our licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, provides 55-minute individual sessions at $150 per session. She provides 80 minute couples therapy sessions for $175.
