If you would like to work together but are covered by another insurance company, I would be considered an "Out-of-Network Provider." I would highly suggest calling and learning about your benefits, as some insurance plans offer to pay for all or part of the cost for an out of network provider. I can prepare an invoice for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. There are some benefits to not involving your insurance company. Should they provide out-of-network reimbursement, they will require a diagnosis, and based on their assessment of your need, the continuity of treatment can sometimes be affected. Lastly, involving insurance is simply less confidential; personal health information is stored in the company’s servers, and less secure. Confidentiality will be discussed in our first contacts, as will your preferences about privacy.

To determine if you have mental health coverage through your insurance carrier, the first thing you should do is call them. Check your coverage carefully and make sure you understand their answers. Some helpful questions you can ask them:
  • What are my mental health benefits?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session for an out-of-network provider?
  • How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?


Payment
I accept cash and check for payment. Payment is due at the beginning of each session.

Cancellation Policy
Therapy is a commitment on both of our parts. To derive the most benefit, it is important to meet on a weekly basis. Please notify me at least 48 hours in advance if you will need to miss a session, I will do my best to reschedule, if possible. Otherwise, you will be responsible for the session.
