Meltzer Center Services & Fees


Fees and Insurance

Our fees are based on a sliding fee schedule and are scaled according to your family income and number of dependents. Payment can be made in our electronic payment system. We do not bill insurance, but can provide you a receipt to submit for possible reimbursement.

Alternative payment options can be discussed upon inquiry.  If you experience financial difficulties and have trouble paying your balance, please notify your clinician as soon as possible so that we can discuss a payment plan.

*Please note that you must pay a non-refundable deposit fee to be added to our waitlist for services ($25 for Assessment/$10 for Therapy). And that the center is not able to provide medications or any form of medical care and does not take insurance.

Therapy can be an effective way to alleviate distress, discover better ways to solve problems, learn new ways of relating to others or to change long-term behavior problems. However, please be aware that therapy may involve the risk of remembering unpleasant events and may arouse other emotions, which may temporarily affect you and how you relate to others.

We cover depression, anxiety, grief, disruptive behaviors, acting-out behaviors, school and peer-related problems and self-esteem and identity issues. We also serve children and adolescents adjusting to life stressors such as divorce, adoption, single-parent family and remarriage.
