Do you take insurance or provide a superbill?
I do not accept any insurance or provide superbills - I value the freedom for my clients and I to make choices regarding their treatment (and should not be dictated by insurance companies), I am a private pay clinician. I require full payment for the session at the time of service. I accept all major credit cards.
By choosing not to work with insurance companies, it allows me to:
-maintain your privacy and confidentiality. Insurance companies frequently audit files and deny claims and services as they dem fit. By not using insurance, you get full control over who gets access to your records.
-not be required to diagnose. In order to have insurance reimburse for services, there needs to be a qualifying diagnosis. Many clients seek out therapy for self growth and normal life stressors, which do not meet the requirements for a mental health diagnosis. Some people also choose not to have a diagnosis on file. This is your right and something you get to decide by not using insurance.
-work with you you on deciding how often and when to meet. Insurance companies like to decide how long sessions are, how frequently they are, and even how long treatment should be. This does not work well in real life and is not tailored to your specific needs. You get to decide on length and frequecncy of sessions.
What is your cancellation policy?
A minimum of 24 hours notice is required for rescheduling or cancellation of an appointment. I do charge my full session rate for appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.
