What to Expect


The Tobin Counseling experience begins when you first reach out. You will find a warm welcome and an empowering response. I'll answer any questions you might have and prepare you for the process. 


Your First Appointment


Tobin Counseling is casual, comfortable, and confidential. Street parking is available near the office. We're conveniently located on city bus lines and there are bike racks available. 

When you arrive, please make yourself comfortable in the waiting area. There's no need to check in with anyone – I will come out and meet you at our scheduled time. We'll take care of payment and any scheduling questions as we begin.

Our first session will consist of an introduction to Tobin Counseling and a conversation about your hopes and goals for counseling. Sessions are 50 minutes long and occur on a weekly basis. If you have accessibility needs, I am happy to accommodate – simply let me know when you reach out to schedule an appointment. I am able to provide video counseling sessions in the state of Michigan for unique circumstances.

What to Bring

  • Your intake packet

  • Payment (cash, check, credit card, and HSA cards are accepted)

  • Your insurance card (for approved out-of-network payment options)

Fees & Policies


Private Pay

Rates are based on a sliding fee scale to accomodate the financial needs of my clients. Payment is due at the start of each session. I accept cash, credit card, HSA card, and checks. Please note that I am considered an out-of-network provider with insurance plans. Contact your insurance provider to learn if you qualify for out-of-network benefits. 


  • $120 per 50 minute session

  • Sliding fee scale rates are available based on financial need. I am committed to offering reduced rates in order to make counseling more accessible in our community.

Out-of-Network Superbills

Depending on your insurance plan, you may qualify to receive full or partial reimbursement for out-of-network providers. It is your responsibility to understand your coverage. I can provide you with a monthly statement (called a superbill) which you may then submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.

24 Hour Cancellation Policy:

Tobin Counseling has a standard 24 hour cancellation policy. If you are unable to keep an appointment, please contact me to cancel or reschedule at least 24 hours in advance. If I do not receive such notice, you will be responsible for the cost of the session that you missed.
