Session fees are due at the time of service. Payment can be made by cash, check, credit cards, or Health Savings Account debit cards (check with your insurance).
I do not bill insurance directly. This allows you to be seen without the involvement of an insurance company. By paying without insurance, you protect your privacy, avoid being given an insurance-mandated diagnosis in order to receive therapy services, and have more control of the services you receive.
You may be able to use your Health Savings Account (HSA) to cover the cost of counseling. I will be happy to provide you with receipts. It is the client’s responsibility to verify whether their insurance covers counseling.
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 client need and you have more flexibility for treatment options, such as type of counseling, number of sessions, session length, and session frequency.
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.
