Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect in a therapy session?
Each therapy session is 50 minutes, although longer sessions might be considered useful. Between sessions, clients are encouraged to think about, process and implement what was discussed. At times, you may be asked to do something specific outside of the therapy sessions, such as read a relevant book or maintain records. Active participation, both during and between each therapy session is essential.
What benefits might I experience from working with a therapist?
A number of benefits are possible from participating in therapy. Often, it is helpful to feel heard and understood. Therapy can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem, or provide direction towards a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you utilize the process and implement what you learn.
What is your session fee?
Each 50 minute therapy session is $130.
Do you accept insurance?
No, but I can provide you with a Superbill receipt, which you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. I do not bill your insurance. The first thing you should do is check with your insurance carrier and ask the following questions:
• Do I have behavioral health/mental health benefits? If yes, how many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
• What is my deductible?
• What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Good Faith Estimate
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and healthcare facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges. You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical 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 bill for medical items and services.
• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or 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 www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
