 Personal growth is an investment.

 

Embarking on any kind of personal growth and healing is an important investment of your time, energy, and financial resources. 

If you don’t get the help you need, you could end up wasting time stuck in old patterns that prevent you from moving into the future you want. Not getting help can also cost you money through divorce, legal battles, health issues, and compulsive behaviors.

My goal is to support you in building a solid foundation for your future relationships, both with yourself and others.

Fee + Insurance Information

 

Sliding Fees

I do not offer a sliding fee scale for private sessions because this would require an assessment of details related to your circumstances and spending patterns. If you were on a sliding fee scale, your financial decisions would directly impact me, which could interfere with my own ability to stay objective therapeutically. By having a flat rate for everyone, I am more able to remain neutral when it comes to financial struggles and choices you make.

That said, I do strive to make as much of my educational programming and group coaching available on both a free/donation basis, and a sliding fee basis. I also offer scholarships for people to attend most of my educational offerings in order to increase accessibility as much as possible while managing my own financial sustainability as a single mother.

Using Insurance

I am not in-network with any insurance companies. In very rare cases, I might be willing to work with your insurance company as an out-of-network provider. Some plans do allow you to see an out-of-network provider. If you have that option, you first pay off your deductible and will then be reimbursed at the rate your policy allows and for the number of sessions it covers.

If you call the member services number on your insurance card, you can find out what your out-of-network coverage may or may not include.

If you use insurance to cover services, you pay me in full at the time of service, and I provide you with a statement that has the codes and information your insurance company needs. Once you submit this statement to your insurance company, they will reimburse you directly for the portion that they cover.

Why remain out-of-network?

There are benefits to both of us to remain out-of-network.

By being out-of network, we can use any modalities that are effective and suited to your particular needs; work at whatever pace is most conducive to your healing, growth, and circumstances; respond to any issues that arise during the course of our work together; and allow the content to emerge and guide our work together in a responsive and attuned manner.

In contrast, in-network providers are often required to provide detailed plans about what specific and focused issues your therapy is addressing and what is being “treated” and how change is progressing so that the insurance company can dictate the number of sessions and kind of treatment it allows. Furthermore, you would be required to have an official diagnosis, need to provide evidence of clinically significant distress and a degree of impaired functioning in order for them to approve services.

Some people choose to opt out of using insurance completely in order to avoid having a mental health diagnosis on their record, which can affect their ability to get affordable insurance should they become self-employed. Having a mental health diagnosis on your record can also affect things like disability and long-term care insurance, the military and adoption procedures.

Potential benefits to working out-of-network: higher personalization, higher confidentiality and privacy, higher adaptability and responsiveness, being in control of frequency and duration of sessions, freedom to use a wide variety of evidence-based, and alternative approaches that may be well-suited to your particular situation.

Potential drawbacks to working out-of-network: usually higher cost usually, not having a detailed record of your treatment that is easily shared with other professionals, and not being limited to evidence-based practice which opens you to the potential of therapies that haven’t been fully tested. Also, the more severe your mental health issue, the more it may actually benefit you to have a diagnosis and treatment team with detailed health records and carefully tracked progress across multiple providers.
