Session Information

I offer daytime, evening, and Saturday appointments which allows you to schedule sessions according to your availability and/or budget.  Sessions are approximately 50-60 minutes in length.  Longer sessions may be arranged and the fee will be prorated. 

 

My current rates are as follows:

  • Daytime sessions (before 5 pm): $175

  • Evening sessions (5 pm and after): $200

  • Saturday sessions:  $225

Payment Information

I am a “fee for service” provider and full payment is due at each session.  I accept a variety of forms of payment, including cash, check, credit cards, and HSA/FSA cards.  I require at least 24 hour advanced notice of cancellation or need to reschedule.  Late cancellations or no-shows will be charged the full session amount.   

Insurance Information

I am an out-of-network provider and I do not accept insurance for payment.  However, I will be happy to provide you with the appropriate documentation to send to your health insurance company should you choose to submit a claim for reimbursement.   I cannot make any guarantees about whether or not you will be reimbursed by your insurance company.

 

Mental health insurance benefits vary depending on your particular insurance coverage. To determine if you have mental health coverage, check with your insurance company to find out answers to the following questions:

  • Do I have out-of-network mental health benefits?

  • Are services rendered by a licensed marriage & family therapist covered?

  • Is any pre-approval required before obtaining out-of-network mental health services in order to be reimbursed?

  • If I have out-of-network benefits, will I be reimbursed the full amount I paid or a portion?

  • Do I have a deductible and if so, what is it?

  • What documentation needs to be submitted for reimbursement?

Right to Receive a "Good Faith Estimate"

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.

  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your psychological service.  You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
