Fees for Counseling
An Investment in Yourself
How much of your life have you spent investing in your career, your education, and taking care of others? When you make the decision to start counseling, you are making the decision to invest in yourself. Counseling will give you the tools that you need to become the healthiest and happiest version of yourself. What investment could be better than that?
“Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you.” ―Robin Sharma
Insurance & Private Pay
I am a private pay therapist which means I am not in network for any insurance companies and do not accept insurance. I decided not to be in network with insurance companies for multiple reasons. They force therapists to label their clients with a mental health diagnosis, control the number of sessions they can have, and have access to their records limiting privacy. I decided from the beginning of opening my practice that I wanted my clients to be in control of their counseling journey, not insurance companies.
Although I am not in network for any insurance companies, you do have the option of seeing me through your out of network insurance benefits if you have a plan with out of network coverage. You will pay me directly and then seek reimbursement through your insurance company. Understand that if you go through your out of network benefits, your insurance company will require that you qualify for a mental health diagnosis and that it become a part of your medical record. Please also note that online counseling sessions and phone sessions (also known as telehealth) may not be covered by insurance.
Questions to Ask Your Insurance Company
In order to see if you have out of network provider benefits with your insurance company here are some questions that you can call your insurance company to ask:
- Do I have out of network provider coverage for mental health counseling sessions?
- Do I have a deductible I need to meet first before you start to reimburse me?
- What is the percentage of my sessions you will cover?
- How many sessions will I be allowed to have?
- What are the requirements and forms I need to complete in order to get reimbursement?
If you decide to go through your out of network insurance benefits, I will help you with any paperwork that your insurance company requires and provide you with monthly receipts to submit to them.
