We do not accept insurance. However, that does not necessarily mean you cannot get some reimbursement from your insurance. If you intend to use your insurance, we suggest that you find out the reimbursement rate for mental health services for an “out-of-network provider”. This will give you an idea of how much reimbursement you can expect. Please be aware that since we bill clients directly at the time of the session, you will be responsible for providing payment to us and then collecting any reimbursement offered through your insurance.
