Cash, Check, Money Order, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted. Payment is to be rendered on day of appointment.

There is an appointment fee of $120 for appointments cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment.

Mona does not accept insurances.
The philosophy of not accepting insurances is therapy is to assist in your empowerment. Insurances have a tendency to tell you what you need and for how long you need it. This is dis-empowering,  and Mona supports your right to choose what you need and for how long you need it.

Mona will provide receipts for services and will consider a sliding scale, as needed, for services.
