For therapy, I charge $150 for 55 minutes.

The Child Anxiety Support program is $497 for 12-weeks. That includes the 6 weeks Strong Kids, Strong Families program; the CBT Family resources; live events; other asynchronous workshops plus an additional 6 weeks in the membership. You can learn more details, get a peek inside, and enroll in that program by going here. You are also welcome to contact me to ask more questions and see if the program would be a good fit for your family.

I am an out-of-network provider, which means I am not on any insurance panels. If you have out-of-network benefits some or all of the cost of counseling may be covered. I do take Health Spending/Savings Accounts. If you are interested in learning more about your out-of-network options, you can call your insurance company and ask the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many mental health sessions per calendar year does my insurance plan cover?
  • 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?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?
  • What documentation do I need to submit to be reimbursed?

At the beginning of each month my electronic health records system can generate a superbill, which is an itemized receipt listing all rendered services from the previous month. Just let me know that you’d like access to this and then you can log in to the portal to download it to submit to your insurance company. This will also stand as a receipt to use for year end taxes. Please note: In order to submit a superbill you will need a mental health diagnosis. Not everyone who comes to see me meets the criteria for a diagnosis. We can discuss this further when we meet.

The Child Anxiety Support program is psychoeducation and therefore does not meet requirements to be covered by insurance.

An excellent question and the truth is, I don’t know yet. Right now I’m going by the recommendations of my liability insurance, which says that therapists are healthcare providers and should be following CDC guidelines. Those guidelines currently say masks and social distancing in place regardless of vaccination status. I personally feel telehealth is more effective than trying to do therapy in masks so I am waiting for my liability insurance to lift that recommendation. My fingers are crossed for spring but we shall see.
