Rates and Insurance


Although I do provide in person sessions, I’m also providing therapy though a secure and easy to use tele-health platform with phone calls as backup.

$100 per 50-minute session.

I offer a sliding fee scale for those who don’t have health insurance and have limited incomes.  Please ask me about it, I try to make counseling affordable and many clients qualify for a fee reduction.

Cash, checks, credit/debit cards and Venmo are accepted for payment.


Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance. Please check your coverage by calling the number on the back of your card and asking the following questions:

Is Mr. Sweetland enrolled with my insurance as a provider?

If not, what out of network benefits do I have?

What is my deductible and has it been met?

What is my copayment or coinsurance per therapy session?

I am credentialed with the following insurance plans, but you should check with your insurance company to be sure your work with me is covered:

Blue Cross/Blue Shield




Value Options


If your insurance isn’t listed here, please check with me to see if I can accept it.

Cancellation Policy
If you do not keep your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.


If you have any questions about how fees or billing works, please call me at (504) 708-5337.
