Payment for services
Standard fees are charged for services. Although I do not have a sliding scale, reduced fees can be negotiated for a specified period of time.
I will collect payment at the conclusion of each session in either cash or check. (Many insurance companies will allow me to charge you only your portion and bill them for the remainder.) You will be charged an additional cost for checks returned for insufficient funds.
Some insurance companies will reimburse clients for my services and some will not. Most insurance companies require that I diagnose your mental health condition and indicate that you have an “illness” before they will agree to reimburse. Some conditions for which people seek counseling do not qualify for reimbursement. If a qualifying diagnosis is appropriate in your case, I will inform you of the diagnosis that I plan to render before I submit it to the health insurance company. Any diagnosis made will become part of your permanent insurance record.
