COMMON QUERIES

Some of the Answers You Seek. Contact Me About the Rest.

WHAT IS YOUR RATE?

My rate is $275.

I accept all major credit & debit cards, including FSA and HSA cards. 

I have a limited amount of sliding scale fee spots but those are usually taken.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN OUR SESSIONS?

Our sessions will be 50 mins long. I like to start each session by asking the couple about an enjoyable moment between them since I saw them last. I believe it is important to honor what went well because we spend most of the session on things that aren't going that great. I end the session by asking about a takeaway from the session to help solidify any important insights or food for further thought. I tend to also offer resources or homework.

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?

I don't. However, I will be happy to provide a "Superbill" for you: it's a detailed invoice containing diagnostic codes and services provided that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

If you want to go this route, I encourage you to ask your insurance company if they cover out-of-network therapy from an LFMT, if they cover telehealth, couples therapy and how many sessions. This works if you live in CA. Keep in mind that in order to be reimbursed you will have to have a diagnosis on record. 

Coaching clients outside of CA will not be reimbursed by most insurance companies. My coaching clients pay out of pocket. 

WHY DO YOU NOT TAKE INSURANCE?

I would need to diagnose you or your partner in order to treat you.
Some people choose not to have a diagnosis submitted to a third party due to concerns around privacy and confidentiality about their therapy records being accessible to insurance companies.
In some cases, it can also negatively impact your future employment for the government, etc. 
Furthermore, insurance companies don't compensate therapists fairly and they also dictate how many sessions each client is entitled to have. I can tell you that the number they cover is very low in most cases.
They also don't cover all services. 
Without insurance, I can design personalized treatment plans for you and hand-select my approach without being restricted by insurance company's regulations.
