I will discuss with you the options (insurance and private pay) available to you regarding payment. I accept insurance from companies on the list below. I will come to an agreement with you about how and what you will pay per session prior to our first session.
For private pay clients, I provide psychotherapy to individuals and families at $100 per hour. As a Certified Imago Therapist, I provide Imago therapy to couples in 90 minute sessions for $150 per session. I offer a reasonable sliding scale for appointments to all, based on your ability to pay. Many of my clients benefit from a series of sessions, and I am willing to be sensitive to your financial needs.
Payment can be made in the form of credit or debit cards, cash, PayPal, checks or money orders.
I accept insurance payments from the following insurance companies:
Anthem Blue Cross
United Behavioral Health (UnitedHealthcare or Optum)
There are risks and benefits to using insurance for mental health care, which I will gladly discuss with you.
Card to be kept on file
I ask all clients to keep a credit, debit or health savings account card on file, and request an authorization for use of the card for all fees such as co-pays, deductibles and no-show fees. Although I keep the card on file, if you prefer, you may pay with personal checks or cash.
Schedule changes without 48 hours’ notice and no-show fee
I charge a fee for no-shows or schedule changes made without 48 hours’ notice unless there is an unforeseen circumstance, such as a medical issue, that arises.
On the “About You” page, I include a link to my Informed Consent for Treatment form, which I welcome you to look over. I will ask you to sign this online.
If you do not have internet access to do the paperwork online or if you prefer, we would be able to complete the paperwork in the first session.
