You are responsible for payment at the time of service.
Appointment cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance to avoid a cancellation fee.
Payments must be made by credit card and your credit card will be kept on file and billed automatically for appointments (including late cancellation fees). Insurance does not cover the cost of missed appointments.
A Superbill will be provided that you may submit for out-of-network reimbursement. Many insurance plans include out-of-network reimbursement to help offset the cost of care. Please contact your insurance provider to determine your benefits.
The Full Story
Insurance vs. Self Pay for Mental Healthcare
There are several reasons why you may opt to not use your insurance.
1. You may not have insurance.
2. Your deductible may be cost prohibitive so that my out-of-pocket rate is less expensive.
3. You may have an insurance that I am not in-network with and not have out-of-network benefits.
4. You may prefer longer appointments than allowed by your insurance or you may not want diagnosis.
I will do my best to verify your insurance (if applicable), and make sure you understand your expected cost. Please be aware that insurance companies do not always provide up to date information and it is your responsibility to make sure you understand your benefits.
I will provide a Superbill so that you may submit this form to your insurance if your insurance has out-of-network benefits.
Submission of a Superbill does not guarantee reimbursement from your insurance company and it is your responsibility to know what your benefits are.
Many insurance plans have separate out-of-network deductibles that must be met prior to out-of-network reimbursement. Please check with your insurance provider to learn more.
Mission to improve access to mental healthcare via telehealth
Mood and anxiety symptoms are incredibly common adults and are natural for times of stress and learning new skills. What isn’t common is seeking and receiving help. There are a lot reasons for this…logistics, cost, lack of trained professionals, and more. However, one of the greatest barriers is our traditional healthcare model.
When insurance is involved, you must meet diagnostic criteria to justify care. Furthermore, your common, human, and complex experiences will be reduced to diagnostic terminology which can feel demoralizing. This overlooks a few key features:
- Common does not equal “normal”.
- Common and “normal” concerns benefit from treatment and intervention-whether they meet diagnostic criteria or not.
- Asking for help is hard. It requires vulnerability and trust which are often already eroded for patients who have been traumatized by previous healthcare experiences.
“Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it’s holy ground. There’s no greater investment.” – Stephen Covey
A better way to provide mental health.
My goal is to breakdown these barriers. Clients wanting to optimize their mental wellness, should not have to wait until problems arise to seek guidance. Anyone who thinks, “wow, this is hard, I could use some help” should have a safe, convenient space to work with someone who will take the time to listen and understand their needs. They should also have input and choice in who they see and how they access this care. Everyone needs support!
What this means:
1. When we work together I will take the time to listen and understand. If your symptoms indicate a mental health disorder is present, we will discuss this in depth. If not, you will still receive care for the stressors and symptoms you are experiencing.
2. If you prefer to use traditional insurance (where you pay a copay and the rest is billed to insurance, you should be aware that I will be required to use a diagnostic code to file your insurance.
