FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you accept insurance?

We are considered an out-of-network provider. Some clients with PPOs are able to be reimbursed by their insurance, though most pay out of pocket. Using insurance for therapy requires a mental disorder diagnosis, which becomes part of your official medical records. Many prefer to pay out of pocket, knowing that the difference it makes to their lives is well worth the investment.

I do not accept insurance in my practice; however, I’m considered an out-of-network provider (OON). To find out if you have OON benefits, contact your insurance company. If you are planning to submit to your insurance company, you may want to contact them and discuss your “out of network” benefits. I can provide you with a bill containing all pertinent codes so that you may submit it to your insurance provider in hopes that you will receive full or partial reimbursement. 

What is your fee?

My fee for a 50-minute therapy session is $130.  I ask that you pay for services at the time of your appointment using the credit card on file.
