Sliding Scale

I understand that some indviduals greatly desire services however financial circumstances are hindering their process. In order to alleviate financial barriers I choose to offer reduced fee services on a limited basis. A predetermined number of slots are available to assist those who would like to work with me but are unable to afford the full rate for the most appropriate service. Please bear in mind that therapy is not only a process but an investment in your health and wellbeing to be prioritized accordingly.


Sliding scale fees are available based on need for a set number of slots. Please ask therapist/counselor for further information if needed.


If you wish to work with me but think you can't afford it, please talk to me about it.


Questions? Please contact me for further information.


Insurance

To limit the control that insurance companies have over your services, I have chosen not to join insurance panels. That said, you retain the option to submit Out of Network claims to your insurance company for reimbursement. I can provide necessary documentation to submit claims upon request. Many of my clients have successfully submitted Superbills and obtain reimbursement from their insurance companies. 


Honestly, many clients come to me expecting to use their insurance and then OPT NOT to use insurance because they wish to work with me. It is not, I repeat, it is NOT my position to discourage you from using your benefits. If you would like to use your insurance benefits and your insurance company recognizes me and an out of network provider I can assist you in submitting claims for reimbursement.


Services may be covered all or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. The risks and benefits of filing insurance may be discussed during the initial consultation. Please check your coverage carefully to verify behavioral health coverage and associated benefits.  Below are a few helpful questions:

Do I have behavioral health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What percentage will insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?

*For couples* Does my insurance cover couples or marriage counseling? *Very important as many plans do not*


If you would like to use your insurance benefits and your insurance company DOES NOT allow use of out of network providers, I can assist you with locating another therapist who meets your clinical needs and accepts your insurance. Ultimately the goal is to provide you with the services that you need in a manner that accommodates your lifestyle.


Cancellation Policy
24 hour notice is required for all cancellations. Clients who fail to provide proper notice of cancellation will be required to pay the full fee of the missed session. New appointments may not be scheduled until a negative balance is resolved.
