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 interest 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.

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

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

Payment

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