Therapy is a catalyst to dismantling old thoughts, beliefs and behaviors that are no longer serving you so that you can experience true, long-term happiness. You are worth the investment... no one is more worthy.
I am an out of network provider, which means that I do not contract with insurance companies.
However, if you have out of network benefits, I can provide you with a detailed receipt that you can submit to your insurance company to request reimbursement.
You may be wondering why I don't accept insurance. This was a carefully thought out decision.
Generally speaking, insurance companies are more focused on saving money rather than the quality of care you receive. Insurance companies require a diagnosis for you to receive services. While a diagnosis can be helpful in some cases, it isn't always necessary. I don't support giving you a diagnosis that will be attached to your medical history forever simply to be paid. Insurance companies also attempt to dictate treatment by limiting sessions and by requiring a time consuming, lengthy process in order for additional sessions to be approved. This can interrupt your progress and it shifts the focus away from you and our work together. Lastly, your insurance company has the right to ask about why you are in therapy and specifics regarding your progress. This type of information is typically obtained by your insurance company to approve initial sessions and authorize ongoing sessions. It's structured so that providing more information about you increases the chance of initial approval and ongoing authorization of sessions.
Bottom line: I don't rely on insurance because your confidentiality is important to me and I want to make sure that you and I remain in the driver's seat when it comes to your treatment and healing.
