COUNSELING AND COACHING
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept insurance?
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 plan 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 $140 for individual sessions and $150 for couples sessions. I ask that you pay for services at your appointment time using the credit card on file with the online client portal.
Appointments and Forms
Please complete the forms on the client portal before your first scheduled appointment. By completing these forms prior to your first appointment, we will be able to use your appointment time more wisely.
If you must cancel your appointment, I request that you provide a 24-hour notice. You will be charged for the session if the notice is less than 24 hours.
What to Expect
Upon arrival, please have a seat in the waiting room. I ask that you text me to let me know you've arrived and I will come out to greet you at our scheduled appointment time.
Who do you work with?
I work with individuals and couples interested in therapy and reside in Texas. Please get in touch with me about my coaching credentials if you’re located in another state.
I offer group therapy for women seeking recovery from infidelity and betrayal trauma. Please contact me for more information.
How can I get started?
Step 1: Click here to schedule an appointment or visit the “Contact” page to share the ideal time for you to connect with me.
Step 2: You will hear from me within 24 hours to begin a conversation to determine whether we will be a good fit for each other.
Step 3: We will book an initial session to get to know each other and discuss where you are and your goals for treatment.
Step 4: Together, we will determine the frequency of recurring sessions, intermittently assessing your progress in meeting your goals.
“GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE” (GFE)
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your care at Connect will cost. Under the law, healthcare providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
1. You have the right to receive a GFE for the total expected cost of all services being requested at Connect.
2. Once you initial appointment is made, a GFE will be made available in your client portal for you to sign.
3. At any time, you can also ask for a GFE before you schedule an item or service.
4. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your GFE, you can dispute the bill.
5. For questions or more information about your right to a GFE, visit http://www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
