Investing in Yourself

Investing in yourself and your relationships is the most important financial investment you can make for a happier present and more secure future. You cannot change your past experiences in life however – you can create a happier future. Let it begin with accepting yourself just as you are today and creating a fresh vision for your life.

I will email you a link to payment prior to the session. I accept checks, cash, and all major credit cards. I also accept most HSA/FSA cards. All cards will be charge an additional processing fee of 3% +$.05.

 

Billing & Insurance

I am considered an Out-Of-Network provider on almost all insurance panels. If you live in Florida or Washington State and elect to use insurance, please contact your insurance company for a referral. Be sure to ask what your deductible is and how much they will reimburse you for counseling sessions.

 

Policies

Cancellation:

For telemental health sessions or in-office sessions, 48 hour notice is required to cancel and reschedule an appointment. If the appointment is cancelled in less than 48 hours, the appointment will be forfeited without refund. Appointments that are cancelled in less than 48 hours may be rescheduled on the condition that the cancellation was due to an emergency. Appointments can be rescheduled within the 48 hour window to be done online or in person later that week, depending on availability.

Inclement Weather:

In the case of inclement weather that occurs within the 48 hour notice period, we have the option to have our appointment via video or phone. The cancellation policy still applies, however with the flexibility to hold the appointment online. Either therapist or client reserves the right to request an online appointment in the case of inclement weather. The most important thing is that we remain as safe as possible!

Payment:

I know that money issues impact everyone in different ways. In order to keep things current and least stressful, I send clients invoices the day prior to their meeting time. That invoice includes a link to a payment portal. I ask all clients to  pay via the link prior to the meeting time.
