TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
Talk to me to see if we should work together:
I fully believe that therapy works best when you have a good fit between yourself and your counselor. To encourage this, I recommend that you schedule a free phone consultation appointment below and I will call you at your consultation appointment time. This reduces any "phone tag" or confusion about when we will talk. We will talk about the things that you would like to work on, how you work best with someone, your questions, and get a sense of how well we might work together. I am the type of therapist that believes that the #1 thing that predicts how fast you will see improvement is whether or not you’ll feel comfortable talking to me. When it fits it fits. The rest falls into place.
The standard fee for services is $140 per one hour (45-50 minute) session billable through credit card processing in advance through automatic debit. Intake sessions are $160. A valid credit or debit card number must remain on file at all times. Payments are made at the beginning of each session and if payments are not able to be made the session will be canceled. Nonpayment of fees will be grounds for termination of services as discussed in the termination policy.
I charge $80 for missed sessions and late cancellations if you cancel within 48 hours or fail to show up.
I currently accept Anthem/Blue Cross Blue Shield and Aetna policies at this time. I do not accept any other type of 3rd party payments, to include automotive issues, worker’s compensation, or any other types of reimbursements.
It’s in your best interests to know ahead of time what services are covered by your plan, including whether you have mental health benefits, who covers them, your cost per session, how many sessions are covered, and whether prior authorization is needed. Your insurer decides what percentage they reimburse, what your deductible is, and everything else about your policy. Please contact the number on your benefits card to find out what coverage limits you have, what your co-pay is, if you need an authorization, and what your deductible is.
Companies other than the ones listed above are considered “out-of-network." You pay the stated fee each time you come in and I can provide you a receipt or a “superbill” if you choose and you can discuss reimbursement with your insurance company or network. At all times, regardless of whether I am an in-network provider, it is your responsibility to understand your costs for therapy. Therapy is a gift you give yourself. I publish my fees so you can plan ahead of time whether your arrangement with your insurer works for you.
