Fees & Policies

      sliding scale                       quality service

Michelle Salois' hourly rate is $130 per 50-55 minute hour for individual sessions.  


If I am on your insurance panel- you may already have a negotiated rate with a copay that your insurance company determines. Insurance panels usually only cover 45 minute sessions.


I have a sliding scale based on household income and number of dependents. This fee is discussed on the phone or in the first session. This scale may go as low as $60 per hour.


If you need a sliding scale lower than that, I have excellent students and graduates working under my supervision.  That sliding scale can go as low as $1


CANCELLATIONS.  I appreciate notice as soon as you know you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, I will do the same for you should I need to reschedule.  Since Insurance does not pay for cancelled sessions; if you have not given 24 hour notice you will be responsible for the total fee (your copay plus what insurance would have paid if you had kept the appointment). 


This fee may be waived in cases where Extreme weather or significant contagious illness may necessitate shorter notice  .
