Rates & Insurance


Initial Consultation

  • 15-20 minutes
  • Free
  • After submitting an inquiry for services containing your contact information I will outreach you to schedule an initial consultation. This consultation will take place over the phone. We will discuss general background information, presenting concerns, scheduling, and fees to determine if we are a good fit.

Individual Intake Session

  • 60 minutes
  • $185
  • This is the first official therapy session. We will go more in depth about background information and make a plan for therapy that fits your treatment goals. While intakes can feel a bit like an interview, I aim to make it as conversational as possible.

  • We will meet regularly (frequency will be determined collaboratively), strengthen our therapeutic relationship, and move you toward your goals.


I do not accept insurance, however I am happy to provide a Superbill to provide to your insurance company for possible out-of-network coverage. For information about coverage, please contact your insurance company as out-of-network reimbursement is not always guaranteed. Please keep in mind that different insurance plans may have different reimbursement rates for counseling services. It is also possible that some insurance plans will not provide any reimbursement for out-of-network providers.

*Please note, sliding scale appointments are not eligible for Superbill reimbursement as per insurance laws*

Sliding Scale

I offer a set number of sliding scale appointments to those needing support with fees. Please set up an initial consultation to determine if sliding scale time slots are available.

If you are seeking treatment for an eating disorder and need financial support, please contact me, as I collaborate with Project Heal ( to provide care to those most need in financial support. Please inquire to see if any sliding scale fee slots are available.


I accept all major credit cards as forms of payment.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. Dr. Piper will go over your Good Faith Estimate on your first intake session and will revisit as needed or desired by you.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit or call 800-985-3059.
