Insurance

If you choose to use your insurance benefits, I accept Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, PreferredOne, Medicaid, and UCare.

If your insurance is not listed here, I will be happy to provide you with receipts for out-of-network services - it’s your responsibility to verify whether your insurance covers counseling. I do not bill insurance directly for out-of-network services.


Benefits of Private Pay

Confidentiality: Treatment plans, progress notes, and billing information are not released to your insurance company, so your confidentiality remains protected.

No unnecessary diagnoses: Most insurance does not cover couples or marriage counseling. In order for couple therapy to be covered by insurance, a billable mental health diagnosis (e.g., depression, anxiety, PTSD) is required, and the treatment plan must address that diagnosis. Mental health diagnoses can be documented on health records and may affect life insurance or health insurance applications, as well as other benefits or services. For this reason, if you are coming to see me for relationship concerns, I offer private pay.

Flexibility for optimal care: With private pay, treatment is guided by your need and you have more flexibility for treatment options, such as type of counseling, number of sessions, session length, and session frequency.


Cancellation Policy

Empowered Relationships requires a 24 hour cancellation notice.  Appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice and missed appointments are charged the full session fee.
