Paying for Therapy
To make it easier for you, I accept payment in a variety of ways: cash, check, credit, debit, flex spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA) card. I work independent of insurance panels for several reasons. By doing this, you and I are in control over what we work on together and how we go about it. Insurances oftentimes limit the number of sessions that are covered regardless of whether you've met your goals and require documentation and a diagnosis before agreeing to cover more visits. Being independent from insurance panels also helps to protect your confidentiality regarding your mental health. Because I'm considered out-of-network, you'll be responsible for the full fee at the time of our appointment.
If you're interested in learning more or setting up an appointment, feel free to contact me.
Please let me know if you wish to use your health insurance's out-of-network benefits to help pay for therapy. Depending on your plan's benefits, a certain portion of the fee may be repaid to you by your insurance. I'm more than happy to help you understand your benefits, go over the reimbursement procedure, and provide you with the proper documents. If the idea of navigating the insurance maze feels daunting, there are resources available that can streamline the insurance reimbursement process such as the Better app.
Counseling is considered a health expense for tax purposes and you may be eligible for a credit on your taxes. I'm able to set you up with any of the documentation you'll need for all of those purposes.
