I do not accept insurance copayments. Clients pay me directly in full for each session and I will file insurance claims for clients' reimbursement if desired.
Please check your insurance coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
- What are my mental health services benefits?
- What is my reimbursement amount for psychotherapy/counseling with a doctoral level, licensed psychologist? (Please note that many in-network therapists are not PhD or doctoral level.)
- Is there a limit to the number of therapy sessions my plan covers?
- What is the deductible for my out-of-network benefits?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
