FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Free Consultation

I understand that choosing your therapist is an important decision; therefore I offer prospective clients the opportunity to meet me in person for a 20-minute consultation.  During this meeting we will have a chance to see if we will be a good fit for working together.

What are your fees?

Please contact me directly regarding my fees.

What insurance do you take?

I am currently accepting the following insurance.  Please note that this list is subject to change:

  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO
  • Medicare
  • Tricare
  • Cigna
  • Traditional Medicaid

It will be important to call your insurance provider before the first session in order to confirm behavioral health benefits.  Questions that may be helpful to ask are:

  • "What behavioral health coverage do I have?"
  • "Do I have a deductible?"
  • "Do I have a co-pay?"
  • "Do I need an authorization for psychotherapy before I begin attending appointments?"
  • "Do I have a therapy session limit or do I have unlimited amount of sessions?"
Out of Network?

If I do not take the insurance plan that you have, a possible option is to use "out-of-network" benefits.   This benefit allows you to see any therapist, pay the therapist directly and then be partially reimbursed by your insurance provider.  If you are interested in this option, you will want to call your insurance company to confirm if you have this benefit.  If so, and you would like to use your out-of-network benefit, I will provide you the needed receipt after each session to file for reimbursement with your insurance company.

What types of payment do you accept?

Cash, check and major credit cards accepted.  I also accept HSA/FSA cards. 

What is your cancellation policy?

If you cannot make your appointment please contact me 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.  Missed appointments or failure to provide a 24-hour cancellation notice for appointments will be charged $75.
