Free 20-minute Consultation: I believe that it is essential to have choice and having a conversation is away to promote agency and empowerment in choosing your provider. This consultation is a way to facilitate choice. Therefore, to set up therapy I offer all clients a free, 20-minute phone consultation.
During this conversation, we will discuss:
What brings you to therapy at this time
What you are needing out of therapy
Any current crisis factors
My style, rates, availability
Any additional questions you may have
If you choose to work with me we will discuss next steps such as:
Setting the Fee (for more information please see below)
Scheduling, annd frequency of sessions
The distribution of paperwork and any associated questions
And setting up VSee (a HIPAA compliant platform for telemedicine)
Standard Fees for Services:
Individual, Adolescents and Couple Counseling
50-Minute Sessions: $150
Due to my commitment in supporting my community and making therapy accessible, I reserve a portion of my practice for sliding scale opportunities. At this time, however, these slots are full.
My sliding scale fee ranges as low as $80 a session.
Methods of Payment: I accept Health Spending Account cards (HSA and FSA), and major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express) through square.
Although I do not accept insurance as payment for sessions, I can provide you with an itemized receipt to submit for reimbursement on a monthly basis for you to submit to your HSA/FSA or PPO plan. Please check with your insurance provider for questions related to coverage, since I cannot guarantee reimbursement.
Good Faith Estimate/No Surprises Act:
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a 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.
