There are several advantages to paying out of pocket. The main advantage is that counseling decisions are made between you and I and not by the insurance company. This means your counseling is tailored specifically to your needs...we decide sessions, time, goals, frequency, fee and termination.

Insurance companies pay for healthcare services only, and therefore I would have to diagnose you with a mental health disorder and share my diagnosis with your insurance company if I was to bill. Depending on your coverage, the insurance company may limit the number of sessions and require me to submit ongoing progress reports and treatment plans to justify the services I provide you.
If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
