Full Fee / Out-of-Network Insurance


The full fee for services at Live Oak is $160/session. If you are using an out-of-network PPO insurance plan, our therapists are prepared to help you submit claims for reimbursement on your behalf. Unfortunately, we cannot submit claims for HMO plans, Medicaid, or Medicare.

Sliding Scale


The lowest fee offered at Live Oak is $35/session. Our sliding scale offerings are dependent on each client’s financial sustainability and current appointment openings among our staff psychotherapists.

Graduate Interns


Live Oak trains graduate-level interns from local programs in social work, clinical counseling, and marriage and family therapy. These interns are with us for a full year from July – June, and are supervised by fully licensed staff psychotherapists.
