New Clients

Availability and Scheduling

I am accepting new self-pay clients. My insurance practice is full and I am not accepting new insurance clients.


I see clients Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with appointment times between 10am and 6:30pm. I do not have late evening or weekend availability.


Self-Pay Clients

My fee is $150 for a 50-minute individual session and $225 for a 75-minute partners session. I have a sliding fee scale available on a limited basis for daytime appointments.


For self-pay clients, I offer a complimentary 30-minute in-person consultation for us to get to know each other and to ensure a good fit for ongoing sessions.


Insurance Clients

My insurance practice is full and I am not accepting new insurance clients. To join my waitlist, please email me as indicated below.

I accept Blue Shield and Magellan/Kaiser Permanente under provider contract. I also accept out of network benefits from other plans, including Cigna, United Behavioral Health, and Blue Cross.

If you'd like to use your insurance, I'll verify coverage directly with your provider to give you a sense of coverage, co-pays, and deductibles. To begin this process, send an email to mackenzie.stuart@counselingmail.com with:

  • The name your insurance has on file
  • Your date of birth
  • The address your insurance has on file
  • Your insurance policy number
  • Any group number associated with your policy
  • Any authorization number

Insurance verification usually takes 3-5 business days.
