Do you accept insurance?
No, I do not accept insurance at this time. However, don't let this deter you from asking your insurance provider about "out-of-network" benefits. This will require some work on your part to inquire information from your insurance provider to determine if your "out-of-network" benefits provides you with a partial reimbursement for Telehealth. To my understanding insurance companies will not reimburse for couple's therapy. Upon your request, I can provide you a superbill (insurance receipt) that details your sessions and service codes.
What is the Good Faith Estimate?
Notice to clients and prospective clients: Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, or how to dispute a bill, see your Estimate, or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
How much are your session rates?
Individual sessions 60 minutes $200
Family/Conjoint Sessions 80-120 minutes range from $185-$240
Do you offer sliding scale rates?
Yes, please inquire during initial phone consultation, a few sliding scale spots are available.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is a means of using the Internet to conduct online therapy. Some individuals prefer to use either video or phone for weekly sessions. Online therapy will also be conducted using a secure HIPPA compliant platform. Telehealth also provides the convenance of not having to rush out the door to make your appointment. You get to decide the location of where you want to setup your virtual video, please keep in mind to ensure you are in a private location, to protect your confidentiality, try to be away from zero distractions, and have secure internet connection.
Do you offer in-person sessions?
Yes, I do offer in-person sessions. Clients will have the option to meet with me either online or in-person.
How do I get started?
1) Schedule your free 25 minute phone consultation through contacting me through online booking, email, or phone call.
2) During the phone consult, I am able to answer any questions you may have, this also gives me a brief moment to hear more from you and what brings you in.
3) Towards, the end of our phone consult, we will both determine if I am a good fit for you. We decide on a time and day to schedule your initial intake session.
