Rates and Payment

Fees for services provided are detailed in my fee agreement.  All fees are due in full at the start of each session.  Our main form of payment will be Stripe which is used on our SimplePractice portal. Other acceptable forms of payment are personal check and credit cards through PayPal. Service fees do not include tax.   


Insurance

I am an out-of-network provider, and do not accept insurance at this time.  Depending on your insurance plan, you may be reimbursed for part or all of my services. I can provide you a receipt of services for you to submit to your insurance company, should you chose to use your insurance to pay for your therapy. It is your responsibility to pay the agreed upon fee at the time of services, regardless of your insurance arrangements.  Please check your coverage carefully by asking your insurance company the following questions:
 

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

  • How many sessions per year does my insurance cover?

  • What is the coverage amount per treatment session for an out-of-network provider?

  • What is my deductible, and has it been met?

  • What information is needed to submit for reimbursement (i.e., diagnosis code, service code, provider tax identification, etc.)?


Cancellations and Missed Appointments

In order to maximize treatment effectiveness, it is expected that you attend therapy on a weekly basis.  I set aside and hold your weekly time, and also limit the number of patients I see so that I may better address your needs.  Given challenges with filling your session time on short notice, I enforce a 24-hour cancellation policy.  I will charge a fee of $100 for appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, unless we are able to reschedule for a later time that same week.  Please note that insurances will not reimburse for missed appointments.
