I do provide a sliding scale based on a case by case basis as well as a student rate. This is something we can discuss and agree upon when we meet.
Initial phone consultation is no charge.
The only insurance panels I have chosen to join as an in-network provider is Aetna, Pacific Source, and Blue Cross/Blue Shield. However, you may be able to see me as an out-of-network-provider, depending on your insurance plan.
Many people seek reimbursement when seeking care from an out-of-network provider such as myself. To determine if you have mental health coverage that allows this, the first thing you should do is check with your benefits provider/advisor. Find the answers to the following questions:
- What are my mental health benefits?
- What is the coverage per therapy session?
- Do you cover therapy for couples or families (if that is what you are seeking)?
- How much does my insurance pay for an out of network provider?
- Is approval necessary from my primary physician?
Reduced fee services are available for people who do not have mental health coverage or have inadaequate mental health coverage.
Cash, check or credit card
If you miss an appointment and you have not given 24-hour notice, you will be responsible for the full cost of the session.
