Counseling Fees

The fee for a first meeting is $165 per 50-minute session for individual or couples therapy. How often we meet following our initial session will depend on your current needs and goals. Generally speaking, therapy is most effective when you make the commitment to weekly sessions. You may pay for your sessions by check, cash, or the Venmo app. My Venmo user name is @Dr-Jennifer-Ballerini. To keep your payment information private, please send money "to participants only" and don't friend me.

Insurance & HSAs

I am not an in-network provider for any HMO health insurance at this time. If you have insurance coverage through a PPO plan, you likely will be reimbursed for a percentage of the fees for our sessions together. I will be happy to prepare a monthly statement for you to submit to your PPO health insurance plan or Health Savings Account for reimbursement.
