How Much Does Therapy Cost?
How much does private therapy cost per session in Pasadena, CA? How much money do mental health professionals in the Los Angeles area charge for psychotherapy services? Fees for service for out-of-pocket sessions range depending on the education, experience and qualifications of the psychotherapist.
FEES for therapy
$150 per 50-minute session
$200 per 70-minute session
Although I accept private pay only, many PPO insurance companies will reimburse for some of the cost of therapy delivered by an out-of-network provider. I can make what's called a "superbill" available for you to submit to your insurance company, upon request. There’s also an app called Better that takes care of the hassle of insurance reimbursement.
If your insurance company asks you which CPT codes will be used, you can tell them 90791 for the first session, 90834 for 50-minute sessions and 90837 for 70-minute sessions.
If you require a therapist who in your insurance network or provides a low fee, I recommend that you call your insurance company for a list of covered providers or consider a low-fee counseling resource such as Rose City, The Place Within or Open Path.
