Insurance

In order to provide you with high quality services, we do not participate as an in-network provider on insurance plans.

I don’t receive any benefit or referrals from insurance companies. Professionals refer to me and families choose me based on my reputation of providing quality services.

Reasons why we choose to not be on any insurance panels:

Reason #1 Confidentiality: To maintain the highest level of confidentiality of your mental health record. Insurance companies require details about your mental health that enter their electronic health record system and become a part of your medical record. We want to ensure that all our clients feel secure have the most confidential counseling.

Reason #2 Required Diagnosis: Insurance companies require a diagnosis. Even if the diagnosis is not appropriate, there has to be a diagnosis documented for reimbursement. This diagnosis essentially becomes part of your medical record. We want our clients to receive the help they need, without worrying about a diagnosis on their medical record which may have implications in the future.

Reason #3 Autonomy: Insurance companies require you to see a provider that they have contracts and agreements with. When you choose private pay, YOU have optimum choice of provider and privacy throughout the counseling process. YOU get to choose a mental health provider that best fits your need or is in the best of your child vs the insurance company having you choose a provider that is in the best interest of the insurance company.

If you are still considering using your benefits, several insurance plans offer to reimburse clients for their out-of-network behavioral health services. We can provide you with a receipt of services that includes all of the information you need to file for for out-of-network reimbursement with your insurance carrier.

We recommend using getbetter.co to help you with the reimbursement process if you don’t want to deal with all the hassle of communicating with your insurance company. They know all the right questions to ask and will not get paid unless you get paid, which will be 10% of whatever is reimbursed to you. If your payment goes toward your deductible, their service is completely free.

Here is a cheat sheet that includes questions you can ask your insurance provider.

Sliding Scale: Due to my extensive commitment to volunteer work in the community and free counseling services at a local non-profit, I provided limited sliding scale appointment. Contact me for more details. Consistency is an important part of therapy and growth. If counseling services are difficult for you to afford at this point, I’d be happy to discuss options with you. I believe in assisting people to find help and relief in any way, whether that is with me or with a referral. Please don’t hesitate to call or message me.

Payment

We accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment, including HSA cards.
