I am ONLY in network with the following insurance plans:
If I'm out of network with your insurance, you will be paying out of pocket. I can provide superbills for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. I also offer a limited number of reduced rate spots for self-pay clients who demonstrate financial need. (scroll down for pricing)
If I'm in network, I use a third party billing assistant to submit claims to your insurance company for you. However, it is your responsibility to know your insurance coverage for mental health services, as you are responsible for any fees not covered by insurance. Please be aware of any co-pay, co-insurance, and deductible as well as in-network and out-of-network rates.
I use IvyPay to keep a credit card on file, which will be charged at the time of your appointment. Payments can be made using any major credit card, or your HSA account.
If I am unable to collect payment, this may result in the cancellation of your upcoming appointments until your balance is paid in full.
These policies exist to allow other clients access to services, and to protect the financial health of my business. Thank you for understanding!
If you are paying out of pocket rather than using insurance, the following fees apply:
Prices subject to change based on market rate, experience/training, and inflation.
In my career as a therapist, I've worked with most types of insurance. Unfortunately, many insurances come with limitations/restrictions that make it difficult to serve my clients. In the spirit of transparency, I no longer do business with many major insurance companies due to their poor treatment of providers and lack of care for patients.
For example, many insurance companies place limits on frequency/number of appointments, impose harsh audits, and require excessive paperwork/administrative tasks. They also tend to experience many errors on their end, leading to denied claims and long phone calls/email chains to fix the issue. This can lead to clients not getting the care they need, therapists being denied payment for weeks or months, and excessive billing-related costs. These types of issues accumulate quickly and lead to therapist burnout, which takes away from my ability to provide quality care.
In an ideal world, I'd be able to serve everyone no matter what insurance they have. Unfortunately, the reality of our healthcare system does not make this feasible. My priority is to provide good therapy to you, with minimal stress or limitations for both of us. If I don't accept your insurance, I'm happy to provide superbills for out-of-network reimbursement, or provide you names of in-network clinicians.
I provide clients with a Good Faith Estimate as required by Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act (No Surprises Act).
