Much of this business is private pay. Insurance acceptance is limited. Private pay payments by cash, check, or credit/debit card is accepted. All credit/debit cards incur a 2.75% card processing fee. All payments are expected at the time of your session, unless other arrangements have been made in advance.
If you are unable to afford the flat rates, you may be eligible for a reduced price on our Sliding Scale Fee. Household income refers to your combined shared income if you are partners residing together. Dependents refers to children for which you are legally responsible for, elders for which you are legally responsible for, or adults with a disability for which you are legally responsible for.
Please discuss fee concerns with me before your first appointment. If you are paying a reduced fee, it is your responsibility to report any significant changes in financial status to us. We work with clients to make sure therapy is affordable. If that means we meet every other week instead of every week then that is what we do.
We are an “out of network” practice for many insurance companies. If you would like to bill your insurance for your sessions, let us know and we will be happy to provide you with the “superbill” insurance form with our portion filled out, and a statement verifying your payments to us. You can then send that to your insurance company, and request they reimburse you. Insurance accepted here are: Optum (United Behavioral Health or United Healthcare), Forward Health and some Forward Health HMOs, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Molina Healthcare, and HPS.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If for some reason you cannot attend a scheduled session, you must make every attempt to call at least 24 hours before the session to cancel. If you do not give your therapist at least 24 hours notice of a cancellation, you should expect to pay the full fee for the session, which will be collected at the beginning of the following session. There are exceptions to this rule such as an illness that comes on that day and snowy weather making roads hazardous.
