Private Pay - Private pay may be the best option for you if you do not have insurance or if you would like more control over the frequency, duration, and/or style of therapy you receive. This is also a good option for individuals who prefer their company health plan not to receive mental health claims due to the stigma some employers still have of mental health treatment and/or a diagnosis, despite the data that indicates that therapy reduces sick time and increases productivity.
I accept all major credit cards and HSA cards, cash, check, and Venmo.
Out of Network Benefits - Out of network benefits are benefits provided for you by your insurance company. This benefit reimburses you a certain percentage of the therapy fee (usually 30% to 80%) once your deductible is met.
Health Savings Account - You may have an employer-based or individual health savings account that you use to pay for healthcare costs from a designated account which is not taxed. This can be a great way to save costs on not only therapy but other healthcare providers and expenses as well.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full missed session.
Why go "pay out of pocket"?
Therapy is an investment in yourself, especially in the long run. My fee includes years of training, multiple certifications, personalized care and therapy that supported by experienced and consultations with certified consultants several times a month.
Some styles of therapy are not covered by insurance despite the fact that they are evidence based practices. Insurances often demand specific types of therapy that have shown to be more of a band-aid rather than offer sustained healing. Insurances often cap the number of sessions permitted per year as well as the amount of time per session. For most, 10 sessions per year is simply not enough and puts undue pressure on both the client and therapist to "get it all done" in too short of a time period.
For some, having a mental health diagnosis submitted to insurance is something they want to avoid. I am a passionate advocate for ending the stigma of mental health issues, however, I understand that a label is not an option for some individuals, depending on profession, life circumstances or personal preference. In order to use your insurance benefits, including out-of-network, a diagnosis must be submitted.
