Reschedule Only Policy

~~~~

To encourage the integrity and ongoing progress of therapeutic treatment, this practice maintains a reschedule-only policy. Every client has a recurrent scheduled day and time for sessions each week. On occasion, if a schedule conflict arises, it may be possible to swap a one-time slot for another. Unless otherwise agreed upon before the session, all sessions must be paid in full at the time of the session. You are responsible for the payment whether or not the session is attended. You must cancel and reschedule your appointment within 48 hours of its planned time, or you will be charged the full fee for the scheduled session.

FAQ's


  1. 1. Do you offer free consultations? I offer free consultations for Intensive Psychotherapy. For traditional ongoing sessions the fee is $50.00 for a 30-minute consultation to ensure we are a good fit.

  2. Do you offer in-person sessions? I currently offers virtual sessions with limited availability for in office sessions. At times, it may be recommended that you are best fit for in office sessions.

  3. What form of payment do you accept? Payment methods accepted are cash, debit/credit card and HSA/FSA* cards. * Some health savings plans may require a formal medical diagnosis to approve reimbursement.

  4. What is your rates non-intensive sessions? 

    • Individual Sessions: 45 to 55-minutes range from $160.00+ per session

    • Couple & Relationship Sessions: 55 to 75-minutes range from $220.00 + per session.

  5. Do you accept Out Of Network Benefits? If you would like to utilize your out-of-network benefits, you will be provided statements or a superbill for you to file reimbursement with your health insurance. You must let me know if you plan to seek reimbursement through insurance because you must meet medical necessity and carry a medical diagnosis for reimbursement. If you do not plan to use your health insurance, you must sign an opt-out insurance agreement.

  6. Do I need to attend weekly sessions? Attending weekly meetings for the first 6-12 appointments is highly recommended in order to create depth-orientation, gather important information, generate momentum, and identify any challenges to treatment goals. Some clients may be encouraged to attend weekly thereafter, however, this can be explored on an individual basis; based on treatment modality, issues and therapy goals.

  7. What if I need longer sessions, or would like Intensive sessions? You would schedule a free intensive consultation to ensure we are a goof fit. Intensive sessions are not covered by health insurance and you can find more information here about Intensive therapy.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, healthcare providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment and hospital fees.

  • Make sure your healthcare provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).

Effective January 1, 2022, the No Surprises Act, which Congress passed as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, is designed to protect patients from surprise bills for emergency services at out-of-network facilities or for out-of-network providers at in-network facilities, holding them liable only for in-network cost-sharing amounts. The No Surprises Act also enables uninsured patients to receive a good faith estimate of the cost of care.
