Payment Options

Consultation It's important that you find the therapist/coach who is right for your unique needs and style. I offer a 15 minute consultation phone call at no fee. Please call or email to request a time.  

Payment Options

For your convenience, several payment options are available including insurance and private payAll payment forms are collected at time of service.  

Insurance Therapy services may be covered in part or in full by your health insurance or health savings account (HSA) as your policy allows. Career and Life Coaching services are not usually covered by insurance unless related to a documented disability. Career Counseling may be allowed as a tax deduction when related to a disability. Please check with your tax accountant. 

If you have insuranceplease check with your insurance carrier regarding your specific coverage by calling the 800 number on the back of your insurance card. Based on your plan, you may be required to pay a co-pay or meet a deductible before insurance benefits can be applied. As an out-of-network provider I cannot bill your insurance. However,  I can provide a receipt of services for insurance billing so reimbursement payments can come directly to you. Session fees are due at the time of service. Many of my clients are able to utilize my services and their insurance with this option.

Private Pay 

This option allows clients to protect their personal health information by not divulging sensitive information to a third party (insurance company). Private pay does not require a "psychological diagnosis" from your therapist to secure payment from your insurance company.       

Many clients are now choosing a private pay option for confidentialityconvenience, and the simplicity of no hassles with their insurance company. Mental health services may be tax deductible as part of your total medical costs. Consult your accountant. 

Payment Major Credit Cards, Cash, or PayPal are accepted for payment. Payment is collected at time of service. Reduced Fees Because I provide some "no fee" services to individuals who have financial challenges, I typically do not discount my regular fees for standard services. I also provide many hours of "no fee" counseling work in various capacities in the community. 

Special Programs:  At this time, I am not a provider for MediCare or MediCal. 

Cancellation Policy Please notify me at least 48 hours in advance, by phone or a text message (please state your name), if you need to reschedule your appointment to avoid a full fee charge for the session. I will do my best to try to reschedule you within 2-3 business days as my schedule allows.
