My fee is $140 for a 50-minute session. My sessions are exclusively telehealth at this time.
Payment will be accepted via credit card through the secure Simple Practice platform, which I use for telehealth sessions. You will receive all the necessary information and forms when you schedule your first session with me. Popular apps such as Venmo, Cash App, Paypal and Zelle are not currently HIPAA compliant and I cannot accept payment via these services at this time.
I am not on any insurance panels. If you are covered for services by an out-of-network provider, I can provide a bill for services in order for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
The medical model is the basis for mental health coverage provided by insurance. Medical coverage pays for therapy when the client has a diagnosis and the therapy is treatment for that diagnosis. This diagnosis become part of the client's medical history and is then considered a pre-existing condition. When deciding whether or not to use your insurance benefits for therapy, it is important to take this into consideration. Currently, insurance companies are not allowed to reject people for pre-existing conditions. This can always change. Also, life insurance companies are not subject to this provision and may deny policies due to pre-existing diagnoses such as depression.
