Rates & Insurance

Professional Counseling Rates 

My hourly fee is $140 for the initial session and $120 for each session thereafter. Additional Fees for therapy groups are $50 per session. For legal documents, I charge $200 per hour for preparation and attendance at any legal proceedings which are paid in advance at a minimum of 3 billable hours.


I am an in-network insurance provider, take most insurances, and can file to your insurance company. Depending on your health care provider some fees for therapy may be covered or eligible for a percentage of reimbursement as in-network mental health services. If you opt to file with your insurance it is your responsibility to know the type of mental health or behavioral health coverage you carry on your plan as well as the limitations of that coverage. For more information, please view the Professional Counseling Services Agreement Form



For your convenience, I accept cash, check, credit card or FSA cards. Payment is due at the beginning of each session.  

Cancellation Policy 

To respect the time of Amy Buckman, if you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.  Exceptions to this policy would include illness or emergencies.
