Prickly Pear Therapy and Training fees vary depending on the services provided: 

An initial 60-minute intake or first session appointment fees are $150-$175. Intake appointments include time for the following services: written assessments, a clinical interview, and consultation. 

After the initial session, sessions in person or online fees range from $150 to $175. A session is 55 minutes in length unless otherwise agreed upon with your therapist. 


We currently accept BCBSTX insurance. If we do not accept your insurance, we can provide you monthly receipts for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Most health insurance policies provide some coverage for mental health treatment. If clients choose to use benefits, it is their responsibility to find out exactly what their mental health benefits include. 

If a client files a claim with their insurance company for reimbursement, Prickly Pear Therapy and Training will work with the client to ensure that the insurance company has all of the information needed to process the claim. A “statement” (receipt, superbill, claim form) can be given to a client at the time of service rendered or on a recurring monthly schedule for “out-of-network” reimbursement.”

Sliding scale and reduced fees

Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis upon request. At this time we do not have sliding scale  or reduced fee slots available. 


Payment is due at the time of service. We require that you have a current credit card saved in our system before your first appointment. Prickly Pear Therapy and Training accepts payment in the following ways:

  • Cash, exact change only.
  • Checks payable to Serrata and Hurtado, INC can be written for services rendered at the time of session. There is a $25 fee for returned checks. 
  • Credit card (Mastercard, Visa, American Express). Prickly Pear Therapy and Training requires that clients provide current and active credit card information for all clients.
  • Company flexible spending account or health savings account debit cards (FSA and HSA). 

Cancellation and rescheduling

We ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice when cancelling or rescheduling an appointment or you are subject to a cancellation or “no show” $50 fee. Insurance companies do not provide reimbursement for canceled or missed sessions.
