Do you take insurance, and how does that work?

I am not contracted with any insurance plans. If you have mental health insurance benefits you may be eligible to submit a claim for reimbursement of out-of-network services. Payment in full is due at time of service and upon your request I will provide you with a statement, referred to as a superbill, for you to submit for reimbursement to your insurance provider.  You MUST contact your insurance company to ask questions about out of network coverage for your specific insurance plan. Please note, I do not work with insurance companies and there will be a charge for any contact with your insurance company. 

Helpful Questions for Insurance

  • Do I have out-of-network mental health benefits?
  • Are services rendered by a licensed professional counselor covered?
  • Is any pre-approval required before obtaining out-of-network mental health services in order to be reimbursed?
  • If I have out-of-network benefits, will I be reimbursed the full amount I paid or a portion?
  • Do I have a deductible and if so, what is it?

Please note that submitting a Superbill does not guarantee reimbursement. You must check with your insurance company as to what your out of network benefits are. 

I also accept Health Savings Accounts or Flexible Spending Accounts

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit or call (800) 985-3059.
