How Do I Get Started?

Please call me at 828-283-0573 or email at briandugdale@hotmail.com to begin the conversation. Through a series of questions, we can decide if I would be able to serve you well.  Then an initial appointment can be made. 

What Are Your Session Fees?

53 Minute Session - $100

Comprehensive Clinical Assessment- $150

Do You Take Insurance?

I am in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna, UMR, MedCost and United Health/Optum.  However, I can provide a superbill for you to submit a claim for an out-of-network reimbursement if you have a different insurance provider. Please contact your insurance provider to see if this is an option

What if I want to see you, but cannot afford your fees?

I reserve a few slots in my week for members of the Open Path Psychotherapy Collective. Open Path is a collective of therapists who have agreed to provide lower fee services ($30-$80 per session). 

As a client you can become a lifetime member of Open Path for a one-time fee of $49 – which will more than pay for itself after your first session. Becoming a member gives you lifetime access to all the therapists who are part of Open Path. To find out more or to become a member, click here.

My Open Path rates are $30-50 for an individual counseling session and $30- $80 for couples or family counseling.

Check to see if I am accepting new Open Path clients here. Please note that I offer a limited number of Open Path spots in my practice. I will keep my profile updated to reflect my availability.
