Frequently Asked Questions
When do you have available appointments?
Appointments are offered weekdays with flexible hours.
How long is a session?
The initial intake session is 60- 90 minutes. All sessions thereafter are typically 45- 55 minutes.
How much do you charge for a session?
An intake appointment is $300, and subsequent sessions are billed at $200.
Do you take my insurance?
I am an out-of-network provider, which means I do not bill to insurance companies.
What if I want to be reimbursed by my insurance?
As an out-of-network provider, I will give you a monthly account statement that you can submit to your insurance company, and they will reimburse you at the out-of-network rate. Many of my clients get nearly full or partial reimbursement from their insurance company, or have payments applied toward their deductible. Insurance plans vary, so it is highly recommended that you understand your insurance coverage and discuss the process with them before your appointment.
Why don’t you take insurance?
I have chosen to not bill insurance because I prefer to work directly with my clients without having to negotiate with a third party about the diagnosis or make compromises regarding the treatment that I feel my clients need.
How do I pay for a session?
Payment for each session is due at the time of the session. I accept cash or check.
How long will therapy take?
Therapy is an individualized process, so there is no one answer. For some people, treatment goals can be met within a couple of months, for others it may take a couple of years. I will have a better sense of this after the intake appointment and the following session when we create the treatment plan.
What are my privacy rights?
Your personal health information is protected under the HIPAA Privacy Rule. You can read a notice of your privacy rights here: HIPAA Privacy Notice.pdf Further information about client confidentiality will be provided in a Client Agreement form which you will be given prior to the intake appointment.
