Why i don't accept insurance

I do not participate with insurance panels at this time. Often, insurance companies set limits on the number, length, and type of sessions - unfortunately this means that you have a reduced ability to choose your provider and the types of services you are looking for, as well as reduced privacy. Insurance companies require me to render a diagnosis, and for many of my clients, this is neither necessary nor helpful in the process of achieving their goals. Not having to work with the limitations set by insurance companies, we are able to tailor therapy to meet your specific needs. I am happy to prepare a document called a superbill for you to independently submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. 
Please remember that therapy is an investment in yourself, your child, and your family. What would be the long term cost of not seeking help?

If the cost of therapy still makes you feel unsure, consider these options:

  • If available, consider using HSA/FSA funds to cover the cost of therapy sessions

  • Submitting a superbill to your insurance company for reimbursement (this does depend on your specific plan - it's a good idea to call the number on the back of your insurance card to see what your coverage is like for out of network providers)

  • Speak with your accountant or person who prepares your taxes to see if the cost of therapy can be considered an out of pocket health expense at tax time
