I am currently in-network on the following Health Insurance Panels:
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance. Please check your coverage carefully for both "In-Network Provider" and "Out-of-Network Provider" benefits by asking the following questions:
If you have PPO Insurance, I can provide you with a receipt/SuperBill and you may be eligible for a partial reimbursement of the treatment's cost by your insurance provider. Each insurance plan is different, so please contact your insurance company prior to our first meeting to fully understand the details of your specific policy.
Self Pay provides the highest level of confidentiality as there is no insurance company attempting to manage your care. Insurance companies may limit the number of sessions, and require a mental health diagnosis. Self pay allows you to avoid having a mental health diagnosis, and there are no limits on the number of sessions you can attend.
