Fees & Cancellations
Your initial session must be paid in advance and is non-refundable if you do not attend your scheduled session or cancel within 24 hours. You will be sent a debit request through CashSquare for the initial fee. After the assessment is complete, each couples, family, or individual therapy session is 45 to 50 minutes in length. My fee is $195 for a 50-minute session and $315 for an 80-minute session. An 80 minute initial session is suggested to complete your assessment. If it is therapeutically appropriate and our schedules allow, additional time may be spent in any given session. If a therapy session exceeds 50 minutes, $20 for each additional 5 minute period will be assessed. Fess are paid at the beginning of each session either in cash or by check. Credit cards are not accepted at this time. Insurance claims are not processed, however, you will be provided a receipt that you may use to file your claim, if you desire. In that case, Claudia Thompson LMFT-S, LPC-S, will be considered an out-of-network provider. Initial assessments for couples and individuals are usually 80 minutes in length with a fee of $315. In some cases, longer sessions are recommended.

Growth may be accelerated or enhanced by therapy intensives. Couples living outside of Austin or those motivated for other reasons may find that they are best served by attending therapy intensives. These extended sessions and half, full, or 2-day intensives are available upon request. Please contact Claudia Thompson to discuss your therapy needs.
Therapists training under the supervision of Claudia Thompson offer more availability at lower rates, including evenings and weekends. Access their contact information and bios here, or contact Claudia Thompson for a recommendation.
