I believe that therapy should be available for everyone. Reduced fee counseling services are available on a limited basis. Please contact me and ask if I currently have a reduced fee therapy slot available.
Overall, I do not accept insurances because it is my believe that no one should determine for you how many therapy or counseling sessions are needed to feel better, or which therapist to choose from. If you need to see a trauma or EMDR therapy specialist, you should be able to decide which one is best for you. Also, when seeking reimbursement through your insurance please keep in mind that some of your mental health information like your diagnosis, therapy attendance and possible other information may have to be shared with the insurance provider and stays in your permanent record.
However, if you personally want to contact your insurance and receive reimbursement for your counseling sessions: I am an "out-of-network" provider, which most PPO insurances provide reimbursement for. Full payment is expected at the beginning of our sessions and I am able to provide you with a monthly Superbill. It will be your responsibility to seek reimbursement directly from your insurance company. Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking these questions:
* Do I have mental health benefits?
* Does my plan reimburse for "out-of-network" providers?
* What is my deductible and has it been met?
* How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
* What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
* Is approval or pre-authorization from my primary care physician required?
Cash, check, any major credit card.
A cancelled appointment delays our therapy work. I consider our sessions very important and ask you to do the same. If you need to cancel, please give me at least 24 hours notice. I am rarely able to fill a cancelled therapy session unless I know at least 24 hours in advance. If you are unable to offer at least 24 hours notice when you cancel, you will be charged the full fee for your counseling session. Please be advised that your insurance company will not reimburse for a late therapy cancellation or missed session.
