What are your fees?
Because not every issue requires therapy, we offer coaching and training packages for caregivers and other professionals. Please refer to the services page for more information regarding the cost of these services.
Fee schedule for individual therapy:
- $200 Initial Intake
- $120 for 60-minute
- $90 for 45-minute
- $60 for 30-minute
All services are conducted in the natural environment (i.e. home, school, and community) and telehealth with the goal of immediate generalization of treatment gains to real-world settings and situations. To compensate for the clinician’s travel time, a fee may be charged for services provided outside of telehealth. This will be billed to you in 15-minute increments at the hourly rate of $120.
Do you accept insurance?
We are considered an out-of-network provider, which means you pay all fees ahead of time and can seek potential reimbursement from your insurance company through your out-of-network benefits. Your insurance provider may pay partial or full payment for services. The covered amount will depend on your policy. Most insurance companies require you to have a diagnosis to receive reimbursement.
Why won’t you bill my insurance company directly?
There are several benefits to providing out-of-network services.
Privacy: Insurance claims require a psychiatric diagnosis, which will remain on your medical records. Once you file a claim, that information is available to all who process that claim. Also, insurance companies often limit the number of visits so your therapist will have to discuss your case with insurance employees in order to negotiate additional sessions.
Medical Necessity: While many people seek treatment for medically necessary reasons such as having depression and anxiety, it is not uncommon for people who don’t have a mental illness to participate in treatment such as family or parent coaching. This leaves your therapist in an ethically challenging situation – to assign you a diagnosis that you don’t meet criteria to ensure your sessions are covered, or the only alternative, discontinue treatment.
You are in control: Insurance companies determine which treatments are covered based on clients’ psychiatric diagnoses and often place limits on the number of sessions covered. When choosing an out-of-network provider, you and your therapist determine the type of treatment you receive and how long your therapy should last, not your insurance company (who often have no background in mental health treatments).
How do I know if I have out-of-network benefits?
If you would like to investigate the possibility of reimbursement for out-of-network coverage, please check your policy carefully and ask the following questions of your insurance company:
- Do I have behavioral health or mental health benefits? (If inquiring about psychological assessment/testing/evaluation, be sure to ask this specifically.)
- Do I have a deductible? If so, how much is remaining?
- How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network mental health provider?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- How many mental health sessions per calendar year does my insurance plan cover? Is there a limit to how many sessions I can participate in per week/month/year?
- Do I need to obtain prior authorization or approval from my primary care physician?
- How do I submit receipts for reimbursement for therapy with an out-of-network provider?
How can I pay for services?
All fees are due at the time of service. We accept cash and all major credit cards. You also may use your Health Saving Account (HSA) Card and Flex Saving Card (FSA) for payment (and for medical cost deductions on taxes).
What will I need for our sessions?
- A computer, tablet or phone (I will send you a link inviting you to session)
- Strong Wi-Fi or ethernet connection (good enough to stream movie/tv show)
- Private space with decent lighting and low background noise (headphones are great for this)
Is it secure?
All my sessions are delivered online through HIPAA-compliant secure software
