Accepted Forms of Payment
We accept all major credit cards, checks, and cash. We ask that you pay at the time that you meet with us. In rare circumstances we will make other payment arrangements.
Using Your Insurance
We are out of network providers, but as licensed psychologists and professional counselors our fees are almost always partially reimbursed through your insurance coverage. We provide you with all the necessary paperwork to smooth the process of applying for reimbursement.
Although it may sound daunting, the process of applying for reimbursement is relatively straightforward. Often the process is just matter of filling out a simple online form on your insurance company website and takes less that 3 minutes. Contact your insurance company for specific coverage details. We’re happy to help you sort out the particulars. Although it varies, most of our clients are reimbursed 60-85% of our fees.
If You’re Curious, This Is Why We Don’t Take Insurance
It boils down to this: if we ‘took’ insurance, then we would technically be working for the insurance company, and not you. Since we work directly and privately with you, we are not required to divulge extensive personal information to them. How to accomplish the goals of therapy are decided upon by one of us and you.
If we took insurance, the insurance company would dictate how long you could stay in therapy. If we were to disagree with their assessment we would have to divulge your therapy history and other personal information to them in the hope of extending needed therapy. For these reasons, we choose to not work for insurance companies, and instead work with you.
