Therapy is an important investment into yourself, your relationships, and your ability to reach your goals. Working hard in therapy often results in improvements not just in yourself (mood, perspectives, energy) but in your relationships and activities (work, education, play).
The fee for a 50 minute session is $150.00. This is the same for individuals, couples, family, and first or subsequent sessions. I do offer sliding scale fees.
I am an out-of-network provider with insurance. Clients will be given information needed to submit out-of-network claims with insurance for reimbursement should they choose through the patient portal at the end of every month.
Insurance companies operate on a medical model, which means they require a diagnosis to establish that you have “a medical necessity” to seek services in order to pay providers. Many insurance companies don’t consider the things we are working on as medically necessary, or debilitating enough to reimburse.With that being said, if I give a diagnosis, it becomes a part of your medical record. While that might not be such a big deal right now, it may become one later on if you want to get life insurance, work in the financial sector managing other’s assets, gain security clearance for work, regularly handle firearms, or seek employment in any sector in which your decision-making might be called into question due to your emotional state. It is important to me that my patients get help they need without fear, stigma, or reprisal for making their mental health and personal growth a priority. If you have any questions about insurance, diagnosis or payment I am more than happy to answer them so you can make the best informed choice for you.
After we connect to decide if we are a good fit for working together, we will get your initial session scheduled. Then you will receive an email to your secure patient portal. All the necessary paperwork can be completed through the patient portal and takes about 20 minutes. Paperwork includes information about how to get in touch with you, your current struggles, a Professional Services Agreement, Professional Policies and Informed Consent, and a Notice of Privacy Practices.
