Your first session typically lasts one hour and subsequent sessions last 45 minutes.
I do not participate in insurance panels or other third-party payment programs for several reasons. First, many clients prefer to keep their involvement in therapy private. Insurance companies must receive personal information about you in order to provide reimbursement. Second, insurance companies often limit the number and type of therapy sessions you can receive. I believe that the counselor and client, not the insurance company, should choose the course of therapy.
If you choose to request reimbursement from your insurance company, I will work with you to provide the necessary documentation. You will receive a receipt after your session which you can submit to your insurance company to request reimbursement. Please check with your insurance company to determine if you are eligible to receive a reimbursement. My services may be categorized under the “out of network provider” reimbursement option in which your insurance company pays a portion of the fee. Remember to check whether your health flexible spending account covers psychological counseling.
