Insurance and Fees

This is a boutique style private counseling practice not a managed care driven clinic; therefore, I work for you not the insurance companies. It is important to me to protect our relationship in order to provide high quality personalized services.

I currently do not participate with most insurance plans because most insurance plans want you to be diagnosed and typically dictate the type of therapy and number of sessions allowed. I believe that these are decisions best made between you and I.  

Additionally, I have found that many clients do not meet the criteria the insurance companies mandate for therapy to be considered a medical necessity. That being said, I am able to provide you with receipts to present to your insurer, employee benefit plan,or an HSA for possible reimbursement, as well as for tax purposes.

Using a pre-tax Flex or Health Savings Account for counseling or hypnosis is a great way to save money and to avoid the hassles of managed care! Unlike using your health insurance for counseling, this route typically does not require you to be given a mental health  diagnosis.

If you choose to use insurance for counseling reimbursement, I may be able to work with you as an out of network provider. You will need to check your insurance plan first to determine your benefits include Licensed Professional Counselors as OON providers, if there is a deductible and if it has been met, and what percentage they cover for individual counseling .Many of my clients use their OON (out of network) benefits to get reimbursed 65-85% of the counseling fee.

Payment

Cash, check or all credit cards are accepted as payment. I am able to directly charge credit cards associated with your employee sponsored HRA or HSA account.
