Standard Fees

The standard fee is $100/50 minute session and the standard intake fee (2-3 hours) is $200.

UCSB and SBCC Students pay only $25 per session, the lowest rate for our community clients.

Sliding Scale

If you cannot afford our standard fees, a reduced fee may be set using our sliding scale.

The sliding scale ranges from $25 to $100 per 50 minute session and from $25 to $100 per intake. Fees are set with reference to gross annual household and number of dependents. 

Additional Fee Adjustments

Additional fee adjustments (going below scale) may be requested for individuals, couples, and families with extremely low or no income. Please let us know about your circumstances when you call for an intake and we will provide you with an Application for Fee Adjustment.

Payment Types Accepted

During this unusual time of COVID-19, the Hosford Clinic only accepts payment in the form of a Visa/Mastercard credit/debit card via the Telemed Fee link at the top of this page. Unfortunately, we cannot take credit card payments by phone.
