I offer a free 20-minute introductory phone session for all new clients to see if we are a good fit to work together.
My standard fee is $200 for the Intake appointment and $140.00 per 53-minute session.
If you need to cancel and/or reschedule an appointment, please contact me by telephone at least 24 hours in advanced of your scheduled time. Otherwise, there will be a $70 late fee for all no-shows/late cancel.
I am a preferred provider for the following insurance plans:
First Choice Health Network
If your insurance plan is not listed above, you may still be able to utilize your "Out of Network" benefits. Please inquire with you own insurance about it.
How do I know how much of your fee I will be reimbursed for from my insurance company?
Contact your insurance company. It is your responsibility to find out how reimbursement works with your particular insurance plan.
Some helpful things to keep in mind when speaking with your insurance company are:
Is mental health counseling a covered benefit in my plan? If so, what types are covered? Individual, Family, Couples?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
Are there a certain number of sessions I am allowed per year for counseling?
Are sessions limited to a specific time allotment? (50 mins?, 60 mins?)
Do I need a referral from my primary care physician prior to attending counseling sessions?
How much will I be reimbursed for using an 'Out of Network' provider?
Most clients with insurance plans have the ability to be reimbursed for my full fee or a portion of my fee. I can provide you a receipt (Superbill) for you to turn into your insurance plan for reimbursement if requested. Payment is due at the time of service via cash, check, or credit card.
There can be some great advantages to working with an 'Out of Network' provider.
We can assess your individual needs and create a plan collaboratively that puts your needs first without the restrictions and requirements of an insurance plan.
Privacy and Confidentiality are increased knowing that I do not have to share any or very little of your information with an insurance company.
We are not bound by a predetermined number of sessions.
After an initial phone consultation, you will receive a link to your secure client portal. There are new client forms to read, fill out and sign prior to your first appointment.
