While therapy is costly, it is also an investment in yourself. I do have a standard fee however I prefer to discuss that in person when you contact me. Sessions are typically 50 minutes and are usually held once a week. However, we may decide to increase or decrease the frequency of sessions depending on the presenting issue.
I understand that one of the main obstacles to receiving professional support can often be financial and I am willing to do what I can to ensure that you are able to receive the help that you need. While I prefer to work without insurance companies, I understand that for some it is the only way to maximize resources. I am an Out of Network provider for all PPO insurances, which means that depending on your particular plan, I may be able bill insurance directly to reduce your out of pocket expense.
Prior to your first session you will need to contact your insurance company and ask the following questions:
- Do I have mental health coverage?
- What percentage of my bill will be covered for services obtained by an out-of-network provider?
- How many sessions will be covered per calendar year?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
Once an appointment has been scheduled you will be expected to pay for it unless you provide 24-hours advance notice of cancellation. It is important to note that your insurance will not provide coverage for late cancellations and that you will be responsible for the full amount. A missed appointment is a loss for everyone and may impact the effectiveness of your therapy.
