Investing in yourself is one of the best return on investments you can have. How much of your life have you spent investing in your education, career, romantic relationships, and maybe even putting others first? You need to give to yourself first before you can give to others. Investing in yourself is an example of self-love, what better way to start than working on becoming the healthiest and happiest version of yourself through counseling?
I am not in network with any insurance companies. A superbill can be provided upon request. If you are utilizing out of network benefits, I can provide an invoice at the end of each session which you can submit to your health insurance company for possible reimbursement. Some of the benefits of receiving therapy in private pay, also called self-pay include the following:
No diagnosis on your medical record:
Since insurance companies are a part of the Medical Information Bureau (MIB), they are required to submit your mental health diagnosis to be kept on your record which can impact your eligibility for armed forces, life insurance, disability insurance, and/or future insurance coverage. When opting for private pay, this is never a concern since your health information is never submitted to the MIB.
Flexibility in choosing your therapist:
When you are using a private pay option you are not obligated to choose from the therapists provided through your insurance plan. You are able to choose the therapist that best suits your needs, location, and personal preference.
When using a private pay practitioner, confidentiality will remain intact without a chance of the insurance company requesting needed information regarding your diagnosis, treatment, treatment plan, or progress of the treatment.
No limit to the number of sessions you can receive:
Insurance companies may limit the number of sessions you can receive depending on your plan, the diagnosis, or other factors. When choose private pay, or self-pay options, you and your therapist are able to choose when treatment is effective and when treatment should be terminated.
Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefits plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
- Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
- Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
Payment is due at the time of service unless otherwise agreed upon. I accept all major credit cards (American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa) & Health Savings Account ACH Bank transfer as forms of payment. I also accept payment directly on my site via this page.
A superbill can be provided upon request. If you are utilizing out of network benefits, I can provide an invoice at the end of each session which you can submit to your health insurance company for possible reimbursement.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full rate of the session.
