MacKenzie meets with clients weekly on Monday and Tuesday with appointment times beginning between 9am and 4:30pm. She does not have weekend or evening availability.


Self-Pay Clients

MacKenzie's fee is $182 for a 50-minute individual or partners session and $293 for a 75-minute partners or family session. This cash rate includes a 20% prompt payment discount.

For self-pay clients, MacKenzie offers a complimentary 20-minute consultation for you to get to know each other and to ensure a good fit for ongoing sessions.


Insurance Clients

MacKenzie is an out of network provider for all insurance plans, including Cigna, United Behavioral Health, and Blue Cross. Her services are billed at her usual and customary rate of $227 for a 50-minute individual session. Full payment for visits is required at time of service. Metaphor Therapy's office handles billing as a courtesy to the client, and the client will receive insurance reimbursement directly for the insurance share of cost, if any.

Please note that regardless of whether insurance pays or not, the client is ultimately responsible for the entire cost of the visit.
