I do not partner with insurance but instead, provide clients with a receipt to submit to their insurance provider. Insurance providers often offer reimbursement for out-of-network therapists. Check-in with your insurance to verify your if you are eligible and the reimbursement amount.
You retain full responsibility for payment of services but I can work with you if you need assistance in communicating with your insurance provider.
I recommend asking your insurance company these questions:
- Does my insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- Do I have a deductible? If yes, how much and have I met it yet?
- What is my out-of-network deductible for outpatient mental health? (Outpatient means treatment outside a hospital.)
- What is my out-of-network coinsurance or coverage for outpatient mental health?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions I have per year? If yes, what is the limit?
- Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for therapy to be covered by my benefits?
Is therapy really helpful?
I truly believe therapy is helpful for everyone. Our modern world does not allow the time to slow down and process our feelings, thoughts, and how we’re operating in the world. If everyone engaged in therapy, I think the world would be a more intentional and kind place!
But is it helpful for you? YES! If you’re looking at this site, that means you’ve got a need, and the ways you’ve traditionally attempted to cope are no longer working. Empower yourself to take the first step–it may be scary, but it’ll be worth it.
Finding the right therapist:
Therapy only works if you feel connected to your therapist. So finding the right therapist for you is important and, like Goldielocks, you may need to try out a few to get it right.
Some key elements:
- The therapist treats the symptoms you’ve been experiencing.
- You like their vibe/feel a connection and chemistry.
- You feel safe, respected, and can be vulnerable.
- What will our first session look like?
After our phone consultation where you’ve decided you’d like to continue with services, we’ll schedule our first session. During our first session, we’ll spend time getting to know one another and creating goals.
In addition, we’ll get a bit of business done, we’ll review informed consent, payment schedule & limits to confidentiality.
What do most sessions look like?
Therapy sessions vary depending on an individual’s goals and desired outcomes. Some clients like short-term counseling with targeted interventions whereas others would like to discuss week-to-week events.
Targeted interventions: the client and I will collaboratively design a treatment plan. Each session will be structured to examine and target specific areas of functioning, thought processes that may be impacting the self or ways the client is operating in the world.
Processing week to week: This type of therapy is typically more in-depth and slower. You come with experiences you’ve found significant and we examine your feelings & reactions. Over time, together, we are able to identify patterns that will bring self-awareness, recognize problem areas, and create intrinsic motivation for change.
Crisis & After hours:
I am unable to support those who need after-hours or crisis services, it will not be a good fit for you if you need a higher level of care.
If you are in crisis, please go to your local emergency room or call the Crisis Line at 800-273-8255.
Since the scheduling of an appointment involves the reservation of time set aside especially for you, a minimum of 24 hours notice is required for rescheduling or cancellation of an appointment. If for any reason a session is canceled less than 24 hours prior, the full fee will be charged. You may also inquire whether there is an option to meet virtually if you’re unable to attend an in-person session.
Late to sessions: All treatment sessions have a specific time schedule with clients before and/or after your appointment time. Therefore late arrivals will not receive an extension of time for their scheduled appointments and the original reservation fee will be charged.
“The healer you have been looking for is your own courage to know and love yourself completely.”
