Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept insurance and how can I use my insurance benefits?

As an out-of-network provider, we do not bill insurance companies directly.

To protect your confidentiality (limiting access of insurance companies to your child's diagnoses and private information) and allow our work together to progress at an appropriate and comfortable pace (without limits set by insurance companies), we do not work with insurance.

If you would like to seek reimbursement from your insurance company for your therapy sessions, we will be happy to provide you with the necessary documentation.

Therapy services may be eligible for reimbursement through your out-of-network benefits, medical spending or health care savings accounts.

Many Health Insurance Plans reimburse 50-80% costs after the deductible is met, though health insurance plans and benefits vary.

I encourage you to call your insurance provider to inquire about reimbursement for out-of-network counseling services.

Please check your coverage carefully; consider asking the following questions:

Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
What type of services are covered (individual, family, group)?
Do I have a deductible due before coverage begins? If so, how much is it and how much has been applied to it so far this year?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per out of network therapy session?

Do I need a referral from my primary care physician to be eligible for mental health coverage?

How long are counseling sessions?

Session are usually 50-60 minutes in length.

What type of payments are accepted?

Cash, check and all major credit cards are accepted for payment. HSA also accepted.

Do parents receive feedback or information regarding counseling session content?

For very young children, I find it important to inquire about progress as well as provide feedback following each session so that skills can be followed up in the home setting immediately. With middle school and high school students it is dependent on session content, but parents/ guardians will be provided periodic updates on the client’s therapeutic process when appropriate and necessary. It is important to recognize that maintaining confidentiality within therapy sessions is crucial to the therapist/client relationship. While parents are legally permitted access to session content, it is important to gain client consent prior to discussing session content with parents so that trust is maintained.
