Fees & Payment



I accept private pay only and do not deal directly with insurance companies.  However, the services may be reimbursable for out-of-network benefits. A statement will be provided every month with all pertinent information for submission to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement.


Payments can be done weekly (due at the time of each session) or monthly (within two weeks after receipt of your invoice at the end of each month). You can submit your payment via cash, check (payable to 'Meltem Paker'), Venmo, PayPal (to meltemp@gmail.com; select 'Friends & Family' on PayPal to avoid a fee) or credit card. There is a 3% fee for credit card payments. 


If you miss or cancel a session with less then 24 hours notice, you will be billed for the full amount of that session. If you arrive late for a session, you will be seen for the remainder of the session, but you will be charged the full fee.
