The following information is a general guideline about our rates.
These rates may change without advanced notice.
We accept the following forms of payment:
• Credit/Debit Card
Base Hourly Rate
Sessions are billed at $120 to $250 per hour.
We bill a minimum of 1 hour service, and then a minimum 15 minute increments thereafter.
See our Consultation Services Page for consultation rates.
Individual billing is a minimum of 1 hour, and then billed in minimum 15-minute increments thereafter. For example a 1 hour 41 minute session would be billed as 1 hour 45 minutes.
We offer a number of group programs ranging from $35 to $120 per session, per participant. In order to cover staff payroll, the programs require a minimum of 3 participants otherwise that specific session may be cancelled.
Individual client session with dedicated employee team
We offer a range of programs. One of our more popular programs includes 3 employee staff as participants in the session to provide a controlled group experience. For our role-playing game sessions, for example, this would include the client, plus two staff members as fellow "players" and one staff member as the "Game Master" (GM).
For our RPG Sessions with team staff programs for one client, we recommend working up to 3 hours per session for weekly programs (depending on client functional capacity, physical or cognitive fatigue, etc.), or 4 hours per session if every-other week.
RPG Therapy programs are typically designed around 2-4 month per program arc. Most clients achieve desired goals within the first arc, and often ask to continue for additional arcs. Typically engaging between 6 to 18 months.
Then as we implement the self-efficacy transition programs, we often migrate to a once per month 1-hour check-in program for 3-6 months.
A 3-hour session typically costs $360.
A 4-hour session typically costs $480.
When you complete the intake paperwork, let us know if you want to begin with weekly or every-other week. Our research shows that both programs work equally as well, though results take longer with the every-other week program, the same results are realized over time.
See our Consultation Services Page for more information on direct consulting.
