Fees for Services

Recognizing that my clients are going through difficult transitions which may affect their finances, I do my best to accommodate them.  My standard fees and policies are explained below.  Please call me to discuss your specific situation.

Standard Fees

1 hour – $150  • 1½ hours – $225  •  2 hours – $300


I offer a series of psychotherapy sessions, or packages, which offer savings over individual session pricing.  Therapy Packages are paid in advance and are non-refundable.

Package of three sessions – $360  ($120 per session for a savings of $90) 
Package of five sessions=$575  ($115 per session for a savings of $175) 

Please confer with me to arrange for packages other than those mentioned here. 

Payment Options

As a client, you can pay with cash, check, credit card, or PayPal.  I can accept your credit card at the time of your visit. To pay with PayPal, use the button below or log into Paypal and make your payment using my email address, patricia@drariadne.com.


Because of all the constraints in current insurance policies, I can no longer take insurance. If you have insurance which will reimburse you for your therapy sessions, I will prepare a “superbill” of services for that purpose, usually after every third session.  Full payment of fees is the responsibility of the client.

Phone Sessions and Skype

I see clients in my office in Encinitas, but you also have the choice of arranging for phone sessions, which can include Skype.

Please give me 24-hours notice if you need to cancel an appointment. Otherwise, (except in the case of an emergency) you may be charged for the missed session.
