Have Any Questions?
Do you offer a free phone consultation?
I offer a free 30-minute phone consultation. During this conversation, I will introduce myself, discuss your concerns/goals for therapy, and I will ask some questions to determine if I can provide the appropriate level of care to meet your needs and goals. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions to determine if I would be a good fit as your therapist.
What are your fees?
Session Type – Length – Fee
Initial Phone Consultation – 30 minutes – Free
Initial Evaluation – 50 minutes – $125
Individual Psychotherapy – 50 minutes – $125
What are my payment options?
Ivy Pay with HIPAA-compliant BAA, is used to process payments made by debit cards, credit cards, HSA and FSA.
Do you offer in-person services?
At this time all services are offered online.
Do you take insurance?
I do not currently take insurance. Certain health insurance policies will provide some coverage for “out of network” mental health treatment. This usually occurs as reimbursement for fees you have already paid for clinical services. I will provide you with a Statement for Insurance Reimbursement (Superbill), at your request. Because not all clinical services are covered by every insurance provider, it is important that you find out exactly what mental health services your insurance policy covers at the outset of therapy.
Please be aware that most insurance companies require psychologists to provide them with certain information regarding their client’s treatment (e.g., diagnosis, treatment plan, treatment summary, fees). If I am required to provide information about your treatment to an insurance company for purposes of fee reimbursement, I will first request your authorization and written consent for release of this information.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require a minimum of 24 hours for cancellations or rescheduling your appointment. Cancellation made 24 hours in advance are rescheduled with no penalty. You will be responsible for the full session fee if cancellation is less than 24 hours. This is necessary because unlike medical offices that see multiple patients per hour, I exclusively reserve time for you and cannot fill your session at the last minute.
How do I get started?
Give me a call at 916-243-5080 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can schedule a free 30-minute phone consultation.
Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate of Expected Charges
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
