Due to ever-changing obligations and fee changes with insurance contracts, beginning in January 2023, PAST Counseling & Wellness will no longer participate in billing through insurance services for new or reestablished clients. This will ensure that you as a client and I as a provider will clearly know the fee for services and what will be expected without any surprises or changes. Payment methods include utilizing your flexible spending account, cash, check, or Venmo. 

2023 Fees for individual counseling are $120 for a 55 minute session.
