My fee is $140 for a 55 minute session, payable by Visa, MasterCard, check, or cash.
I am not on any insurance panels.You will need to pay my fee at the end of each session (unless you are referred through an Employee Assistance Program). If you decide you want to submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement, I will give you a monthly statement with a “mental health” diagnosis. Please read the following statement before deciding to involve your insurance company as a third party to your therapy.
By turning in a claim for your therapy, you are taking a risk of jeopardizing your future ability to obtain life, health, or disability coverage. When using insurance for mental health claims, all therapists must assign a “mental health” diagnosis to your claim to prove that your therapy or “treatment” is “medically necessary” (Couples therapy and marriage counseling are no exceptions to this rule). This diagnosis becomes part of your record in central insurance industry computers. If you choose to assume this risk, I will provide you with a monthly statement, including a diagnosis, which you can file as a claim for possible reimbursement.
