Embolden Counseling Good Faith Estimate

As of January 1, 2022, you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost under the No Surprises Act.

Under the law, healthcare providers need to give patients an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. Below you will find our session rates and estimates of cost to best assist you. Although Embolden Therapy will discuss an initial treatment plan with you regarding our recommended session frequency and revisit your session needs ongoing, you will confirm and consent to your sessions. You have the ability to schedule sessions with your therapist and can confirm at the end of each session. Meaning, you will never receive or be “surprised” by additional services that you have not agreed to. 

When becoming a client with us, you have the right to receive an estimate unique to your clinician’s rate.


Below you will find an example of a $160 clinician’s rate which is our current maximum rate.


Provider: Embolden Counseling Collective PLLC

NPI: 1356901276

Tax ID: 83-1057778

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY. 50 min sessions

  • Cost for first meeting-Initial Intake Meeting CPT 90791: $160 for LPC/ $120 for LPC Associate

  • Cost per session // Psychotherapy Session CPT 90834: $160 for LPC/ $120 for LPC Associate 

  • Estimate for 4-5 sessions monthly for weekly sessions: LPC-$640-$800 LPC Associate- $480-$600

  • Estimate for 2-3 sessions monthly for biweekly sessions: $320-$480 LPC Associate- $240-$360

To make best progress, we recommend that new clients begin with weekly sessions for the first 8-10 weeks (total: $1,280-$1,600). This allows us the necessary time to assess and understand your presenting concerns, build our rapport, and begin any immediate skill building you may need. After this initial period, most clients either continue at this frequency or reduce to biweekly depending on your progress and needs at that time. You will work collaboratively with your therapist to ensure you are only attending sessions as needed and as deemed effective/helpful by you. 

Due to the fact that your treatment planning is ongoing and dependent on your individual progress and needs, we would like you to be aware that 24 sessions a year (biweekly schedule) would be $3,840 for a year of therapy and that 48 session a year (weekly sessions) would be $7,680 for a year (most therapists take off 4 weeks per year) to assist you in your estimation.


Monthly sessions are only recommended for those that have already met their primary treatment goals and when seeking ongoing wellness support is appropriate for their longer term wellness goals. Any diagnostic codes will not be identifiable until you begin treatment. Any diagnoses will not affect the cost of the session, but would inform your treatment plan which would include suggested session frequency.
