Fees & Payment


We are  an out of network provider.  Your counseling services may be eligible for reimbursement through out-of-network benefits, medical spending or health care savings accounts.


What does an out of network provider mean? 


This means we do not bill insurance companies directly. After paying us directly, you will get a receipt at the end of the month which you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement IF you have out of network benefits OR if you'd like what you paid us to count towards your deductible. 

The following is a list of questions to ask your provider for possible reimbursement for out-of-network coverage:

  • How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network mental health provider?

  • How do I obtain reimbursement for therapy with an out-of-network provider?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

  • What is my deductible and has it been met?

Benefits of paying privately/“Out of Pocket”

It is your choice whether you’d like to involve your insurance company in your mental health care.

Many clients choose not to involve their insurance company in their mental health care for the following reasons:

  • Health insurance may limit the number of sessions and the type of therapy.

  • In order for therapy services to be covered under insurance, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This then becomes a part of your permanent health care record. This may lead to limitations such as denial for quality life insurance or health insurance in the future.

  • In most cases, you may be paying out of pocket since a deductible has to be met.
