Q: Do you accept insurance?
The short answer is, yes. I’m in network with some plans, but not all plans.
It’s best to contact your insurance company using the member services phone number on the back of your insurance card to verify whether I am in-network with your plan. If not, simply ask if your plan has “Out-Of-Network Benefits for Behavioral Health, outpatient therapy in an office setting.”
Q: How much will therapy cost?
The initial evaluation is $250. The regular session fee is $170 for a 60-minute session. If you are using in-network benefits, then you are only responsible for the deductible and/or copay amounts. If you are using out-of-network benefits, you are responsible to pay the full fee at the time of service; then you can bill your insurance company using the documentation that I will provide for you.
Q: Wow that’s a lot. Why so much?
Think of it like this. A therapist is a highly trained professional with an expertise in helping you make some really important changes. It’s your life we are talking about here. And, we take that very seriously. Hopefully you will, too. Your personal fulfillment, your happiness and your health are sometimes on the line, and the investment is well worth it.
Q: What if I must cancel a session?
Please keep in mind that your session time is set aside for you only. It is our committed time that we put aside to work on your very important goals. Please remember that the cancellation policy requires a 24-hour notice. The full fee for the session will be required when appointments are cancelled without the 24-hour notice.
Q: I don’t like to cry in front of people. Will I cry a lot?
Some people do, others not so much. It all depends on how you express yourself. Remember that crying can express more than just sadness. Crying can express anger, frustration or even gratitude. You’re human; it’s totally okay to cry.
