I see couples Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM and Saturday mornings 9:00 AM until noon.
INSURANCE AND PRIVATE PAY RATE
I do not work directly with insurance companies -- only indirectly. I am what is labeled a “fee for service” practice. You pay me, then submit my receipt to your insurance company should you wish to do so. My rate is $120.00 for a 1-hour session.
The primary reason that I do not work directly with insurance companies is the fact that, when clinicians submit claims to insurance companies, they must put a mental health diagnosis on clients. In other words, if I accept your insurance, I will have to label you (typically the policy holder) with a mental disorder.
And this is not the case with most couples who seek me out for relationship help. They are not mentally ill. What they need is encouragement, support, education, and possibly some skills training (communicating more effectively, problem solving more collaboratively, etc.).
As mentioned, this does not mean that, in seeing me, you may not benefit from using your health insurance.
Following each session, I send you a special type of receipt that you can:
(a) submit to your insurance company for out-of-network benefits reimbursement (depending on your policy).
(b) use for payment from your health savings account (HSA).
(c) list as a medical deduction on your annual tax filing.
At the very least, what you pay me will count toward your annual insurance deductible. You simply need to send in the receipt that I will email to you following each session.
I accept most major credit cards. I take payment at the beginning of each session.
