I understand that therapy is a financial investment.  Therefore, I am equally as invested in the work I do with my clients.

 

Payment

Payment is due at the time of the session and is preferred in the form of cash or check.  Credit card is also accepted (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover).

Insurance

Like many therapists in the area, I am an “out of network” provider.  This means I do not participate directly with insurance companies, as I prefer to make treatment recommendations independent of most insurance’s limitations when it comes to mental health. Many clients choose to not use their insurance plans, as they prefer the added confidentiality and privacy of a self-pay practice.  Because I am a licensed professional counselor, my professional services do qualify for reimbursement under most insurance plans for psychotherapy services. Many insurance companies that provide out-of-network benefits cover between 50%-75% of the cost per session.  I would encourage you to review your insurance benefits to find out what your policy covers for out-of-network reimbursement rates.  I will provide you with an invoice monthly that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

Cancellation Policy

Continuity is vital to the effectiveness of therapy.  Understandably,  situations arise that may require the need to reschedule or cancel an appointment. In the interest of respect to the therapist’s and other clients’ time, a minimum of 24 hours’ notice is required prior to your session time. Without such notice, the full session fee will be charged.
