I am a private pay, out-of-network provider. I require full payment for the session at the time of service. Upon your request we can bill through a billing platform called Thrizer. This platform takes the burden off off you in leveraging out-of-network insurance benefits. By paying through Thrizer, claims are automatically submitted to your insurance and the reimbursements are sent to your bank account directly. If this is something you are interested in, please let me know and I will send you an invitation for you to enter your insurance information.
I DO NOT do single case agreements.
The initial intake session is $150. Ongoing individual sessions are $140. These sessions are generally 45-50 minutes long.
Parent sessions are required for minors (11 and under) being seen individually. Parents will be seen every fourth session, after children are seen for three individual sessions. These sessions can range from 30-45 minutes and are $130 per session.
I accept payment by credit/debit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, etc.) or HSA/FSA cards. Cash is also accepted. NO CHECKS. Card payments will be charged the same business day as the appointment.
No Show or Late Cancellations:
Sometimes life gets in the way. I require a 24 hour notice for cancellations. I do charge my full session rate for appointments cancelled with less that 24 hours notice. A credit card is kept on file for this purpose. The card must be current with funds on it or it will impact ability to schedule future appointments.
I currently am a Tricare West region provider and do not accept any other insurances. When making your intake appointment, please let me know if you are planning on using TriCare so that I can verify your insurance prior to starting. I will no longer be a provider for Tricare West as of May 4, 2024.
If you are utilizing insurance for your child to be seen and show up 15 minutes past appointment time - I CANNOT charge insurance for your session. If you would like your child to still be seen for the remainder of the appointment time it will be at the same cash rate fee.
