Dr. Chu's Rates
Initial Phone Consultation (15 to 20 minutes) - no cost
Before scheduling a formal appointment, it can be helpful for both of us to have a chance to talk with each other and get a few questions answered. You can get a sense of my communication/therapeutic style, while I can gather some information about your concerns or what you'd like to work on. This allows you to make an informed decision on whether you'd like to start services with me, and me to share how I can help.
Intake Assessment (60 to 75 minutes) - $250
This is the first appointment where I focus on gathering information about your concerns, symptoms, family background, and cultural contexts. You will find me asking you questions and taking notes, which will be quite different from a standard session. We will then discuss your goals and session frequency.
Follow-Up Sessions (30 to 90 minutes) - $120-350
Standard Session (50-minute) - $200
Follow-up appointments are where we dive in and do the work. For most people, weekly standard sessions work well for them, though session duration and frequency may vary based on individual needs and goals.
Extended Session (90-minute) - $350
Sometimes it may be helpful to build on the momentum gained within a session by setting aside a longer amount of time to tackle or process what we are working on. Longer sessions may also be better suited for families when there are multiple members in session.
Brief Session (30-minute) - $120
Other times, it may be helpful to have a brief check-in appointment to help maintain therapy progress, but you may not need the full standard session time. Shorter sessions may also be suited for younger children in some cases. We can discuss what works best for you.
I ask that clients let me know 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time if they are not able to attend. The same rates above will be charged for scheduled appointments if clients do not attend without prior notice ("no-show") or cancel within 24 hours ("late-cancel").
Method of Payment
The Client Portal I use processes online credit or debit card payments after each session. Most of my clients have found entering their payment information into the Portal their preferred way of managing payments.
I do not accept insurance at this time. If you receive out-of-network benefits from your insurance carrier, I can provide a receipt with appropriate details ("superbill") for you to request reimbursement from your insurance carrier if applicable.
