Fees and InsuranceReady to Invest in Yourself?
The short answer is no. I am not credentialed with any insurance panels at this time. This means I am considered to be an out-of-network provider.
While I do not bill your insurance directly, you may be eligible to seek out-of-network reimbursement by submitting a special receipt called a Superbill which I will provide to you.
All fees for services rendered are due at the time of your appointment.
There are many reasons I do not accept insurance, but I will keep this brief.
I believe in preserving the confidentiality of my clients; insurance doesn’t allow me to do this. In order to file a claim with your insurance, I would first need to provide a diagnosis. If this isn’t sufficient, they may request access to my records.
Insurance companies have also made it nearly impossible for mental health providers to be compensated fairly for the years of experience and training that it takes to be an effective healer. I believe in charging what I’m worth.

While I do believe that therapy is an investment in one’s self, I recognize that not everyone may be able to afford my full fee.
You may be eligible to use a Health Savings Account to pay for sessions which can help.
If you are experiencing financial hardship, you may also be eligible for a temporarily reduced fee. Please schedule a consultation to discuss this further.
