Insurance

​At this time, I am only accepting private pay clients and do not accept insurance.

However, many insurance plans provide full or partial reimbursement for out-of-network mental health services. You may verify this benefit by contacting your insurance company and asking if they reimburse at all for seeing an out-of-network mental health provider.  If they do, I am able to provide you with a statement after your session called a "superbill," which contains the necessary information your insurance company needs to process an out-of-network claim. Clients are responsible for submitting claims to their insurance companies. Please feel free to ask me for help in figuring this part out--I am more than happy to support you in this process.

 
Payment Methods

I accept payment via credit card/debit card (using Ivy Pay, a swipe-free, web-based app designed for therapy payments), personal check, or cash.
