Payment & Insurance (draft)

Free, No Obligation, Initial Consultation.

Because it is important for both patient and therapist to get a sense of each other and explore how it feels to work together, I offer a free initial 50 minute consultation.

Individual and couples sessions are 50 minutes duration. Our sessions will begin and end on time.

I accept payment by cash or check at the time of each session.

I offer a sliding scale fee for pre-licensed MFT candidates and on a case-by-case basis.

Insurance

If you have a PPO plan, most likely your plan will cover therapy and you can see me as an “out-of-network” provider.  In that case I will give you a “super bill” which you can submit to your insurance company to reimburse you at their allowable rate. A super bill is a standardized form that insurance companies recognize.

Whether you see an “in” or “out-of-network” provider, your insurance company will charge you your deductible up front.  Please Check with your insurance provider for detail information about your coverage.  If you prefer, my insurance billing specialist can verify your status and coverage to determine your status:  your deductible and any co-pay.

I will do my best to work out a fee that works for both of us.
