Standard Fees

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

UCSB Students pay only $15 per session.

Sliding Scale

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

The sliding scale ranges from $20 to $100 per 50 minute session and from $30 to $200 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

The Hosford Clinic accepts payment in the form of check or a Visa/Mastercard credit/debit card.  Checks should be made out to UC Regents.  Unfortunately, we cannot take credit card payments by phone.

Faculty Clinicians

The standard fee is $200/session; however, there is a sliding scale available that ranges from $75-200/session. Fees are set according to gross annual household income and number of dependents. The lowest possible fee for a faculty clinician is $75/session.  No additional fee adjustments are available for faculty clinicians.
