Financial Information


I am an out-of-network provider, which means that services may be covered in full or partially by your insurance company and you will need to provide payment at the time of services for your session. Reimbursement by your insurance company will be provided after services are rendered.  

You have enough things to worry about already so I will support you through every step of the way of this process and allow you the peace of mind to focus on the therapeutic work you will be doing together.

I will supply you a monthly invoice with all necessary information to be submitted directly to your insurance company for reimbursement. 

It is recommended that you contact your insurance company to find out the policy for out-of-network mental health providers and coverage. I am available to help you call your insurance company to verify that your insurance company will cover out-of-network mental health services. Please call me to initiate this process.

Some questions you may ask your insurance company include:

  • What are my out-of-network behavioral health insurance benefits for outpatient services? / Do I have out-of-network mental health (outpatient) insurance benefits?

  • How many outpatient sessions does my insurance company cover yearly?

  • What is my reimbursement rate per outpatient session?

  • Do I need a physician referral prior to initiating outpatient therapy?

Please be aware that most insurance companies reimburse for medically necessary services only. Many forensic services I offer may not be covered by health insurance. 


Please contact me for more information on fees. Reduced fee rates are available on a limited basis. 

Payment is due at the time of service. I accept cash, checks, and major credit cards.

​For forensic services, a retainer may be required. This will be assessed and determined based on your particular case.

Cancellation Policy

In order to respect scheduling and time management for you and all of my clients, you will be required to pay the full cost of any sessions that are missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours of advanced notice.

Good Faith Estimate

This Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created, and does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment.

If you are billed for more than this Good Faith Estimate, you have the right to dispute the bill. Throughout your treatment, the provider may recommend additional items or services as part of your treatment that are not reflected in this estimate. These would need to be scheduled separately with your consent and the understanding that any additional service costs are in addition to the Good Faith Estimate. If your needs change during treatment, your provider should supply a new, updated Good Faith Estimate to reflect the changes to treatment, and the accompanying cost changes. You may contact the health care provider or facility listed to let them know the billed charges are higher than the Good Faith Estimate. You can ask them to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask to negotiate the bill, or ask if there is financial assistance available. The Good Faith Estimate is not a contract between provider and client and does not obligate or require the client to obtain any of the listed services from the provider. You may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about 4 months) of the date on the original bill. There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If the agency reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on this Good Faith Estimate. If the agency disagrees with you and agrees with the health care provider or facility, you will have to pay the higher amount.To learn more and get a form to start the process, go to or call HHS at (800) 985-3059.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate or the dispute process, visit or call (800) 985-3059.
