Additional Information About Fees
My fees for therapy are based on the usual rates for psychologists in this area. Unless we make other specific arrangements, payment by check, cash, or credit card is due at the beginning or end of each session. During our initial telephone consult, we will jointly agree on the fee and payment schedule. Endless other arrangements have been made, it is your responsibility to pay for the fee at the time the services are rendered.
Insurance, Health Saving Account, Employee Benefits:
I am a provider for Lyra and Modern Health. Please check with your employer to see if you are eligible for their benefits.
I am not on any preferred ("in-network") provider insurance panels. I am considered an "out-of-network" provider. Many "PPO" plans may offer full or partial reimbursement for "out-of-network" mental health services. I can provide you with a monthly statement so you are able to seek reimbursement from your insurance company, health saving account, or employee benefits. It is towards your benefit to review your coverage benefits with your insurance provider prior to our initial meeting.
If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment or cancel with less than 48 hours notice, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
