Because I want to keep your sessions completely confidential for you, I choose not to participate in network with any insurance companies because they require you to have a mental health diagnosis and they dictate your treatment plan. As an out of network provider you and I determine together the best treatment plan for your issue, and more time is invested in face to face counseling, not paperwork and billing. Payment is accepted by cash, check, Visa, and Mastercard. You can use your medical debit cards for payment.
I prefer that you and I make the decisions about your therapy, not your insurance company. You and I decide how often we meet, the purpose and goals of your counseling, and you will not have to have a mental health diagnosis/disorder in your permanent medical record. If you choose to get reimbursed by your insurance company, you will have to be given a mental health disorder/diagnosis.
Some clients choose to pay out of pocket for counseling services instead of using their medical insurance to protect their personal information and privacy. If you choose to submit your receipts to your insurance company, you must be given a medical diagnosis, and once you have been diagnosed with depression or anxiety, it remains part of your medical record and can affect your insurance coverage as a pre-existing condition. Additionally, insurance companies often set limits on the number of visits we can have in a year, some as little as 20 per year, and they also may require detailed treatment paperwork. Sometimes insurance companies do not cover treatment for certain mental health diagnoses. Some insurance companies require referrals from primary care physicians or assessments by psychiatrists.
Because of the decreased privacy and increased paperwork with insurance filing, I am not in network. I want to ensure that you receive the best level of care with the least amount of stress involved. You will have the freedom to decide how frequently you come to counseling, and you will not have to be given a medical diagnosis if it is not necessary.
Cash, check and all major credit/debit cards accepted for payment.
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 $75 for a missed appointment.
