I am not on any insurance provider lists. Often, PPO insurance plans will cover

some amount of out of network psychotherapy.  If your insurance company covers your

use of an out-of-network provider for mental health services, I can provide you with an

invoice listing the dates and fees of your sessions. In this case you pay me in full at the

time of each session, and you submit the bill for your reimbursement to the insurance

company.

 

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee

benefit plan.  Please check your coverage by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have outpatient mental health benefits?

  • How many sessions does my plan cover per calendar year?

  • What is my deductible, and have I met it this year?

  • How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network provider?

  • How much money does my insurance cover per therapy session?

  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

 

There are advantages of paying directly for therapy services, rather than through

your insurance:

 

There is no compromise of your confidentiality by the sharing of information with your

insurance company.  Your insurance records do not include information of your

receiving mental health services.

There is no need for me to label you with a diagnosis to justify to your insurer that you

are in need of services.

All decisions about the focus, frequency and duration of therapy are made by you and

me, not by the insurance company.

 

My fees are: $145 for a 50 minute individual session

$ 150 for a 50 minute couple’s session

$200 for a 90 minute session.
