Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do you take insurance?

 

I am in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS). For most other insurance carriers, I'm considered an out-of-network provider. What that means is that you pay for therapy at the time of your session, but I can provide you with a monthly receipt of services, which gives you the option of seeking reimbursement from your insurance. It's important to check your out-of-network benefits to see what your insurance will cover. I've had clients who receive 100% reimbursement and others who receive no reimbursement. Some clients have higher deductibles, and don't receive reimbursement until they hit their deductible (for postpartum clients, labor & delivery really helps with meeting that deductible!) 

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept all major credit cards, cash, or check. You can always use a HSA or FSA card for our sessions.

What is the first session like?

During our intake session, I am focused on getting to know each other and making sure it's a good fit; answering any questions you have about the Intake Paperwork/ my policies and procedures, learning more about you and what brings you to therapy, and setting some concrete goals for our work together.

How long is a session?

Sessions are typically 50 minutes long.

Do you offer therapy on a sliding scale?

I am able to offer services on a sliding scale on a limited basis. I can provide referrals as needed if cost is a barrier.
