How much are your fees and do you take insurance?

Play Therapy Supervision/Consultation

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.
Payments accepted: Cash, Check, PayPal, VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Zelle.
I am currently in-network on the following Health Insurance Panels:
Even if I am not listed as a preferred provider on your health plan, my services may still be covered partially as an “out-of-network” provider. Some insurances allow a "single case provider agreement" with me since I am a child specialist. In this case you would pay my fees and the insurance would reimburse you after you submit the receipt for services I will provide you with.
If you have PPO Insurance, I can provide you with a receipt and you may be eligible for a partial reimbursement of the treatment's cost by your insurance provider. Each insurance is different, please contact your insurance company prior to our first meeting to fully understand the details of your specific policy.
