Fees & FAQ

Lydia works alongside fellow professional counselors at Foundation Counseling – an association of individual practitioners.


Individual, Couples, & Family Counseling: $100 per 50 minute session.

Sliding-fee scale: $80-100

The sliding-fee scale is available on a limited basis. It is reserved for those individuals and families who cannot afford the full rate. It is the responsibility of the client to ask about this in the first session and together the client and therapist assess if criteria is met to receive a lower hourly session rate.


To save time during your first appointment, please complete the appropriate paperwork and bring with you to the first session:

1. How long are sessions?   Individual, family, and couples sessions last 45-50 minutes. Clients are allowed to book double-sessions, which are 1 hour 40 minutes on the same day.

2. Do you take insurance?  Lydia is currently an in-network provider with Cigna and Aetna. For those with other insurance companies, she can give you a Superbill, summarizing fees paid monthly which you can file with your insurance. Reimbursement cannot be guaranteed.

3. What if I miss my scheduled session or need to cancel?   24-hour cancellation policy: if a client no-shows an appointment or cancels less than 24 hours in advance of the scheduled session, the therapist will charge the cancellation fee – which is the normal hourly session rate. Allowing more than 24 hours of notice enables the therapist to provide that open time to another client in-need.  *Exceptions are allowed in emergency situations (i.e. serious illness or injury) and at the therapist’s discretion.*
