Ask about copays, deductible, and coinsurance so you are aware of what your out-of-pocket responsibility will be.

  • Group therapy: $50
  • Individual therapy with Emily Hemendinger, LCSW, MPH, CPH 60 min - $175; Additional appointment length will be billed in 15 minute increments at the rate of $40/quarter-hour
