My counseling fee is private pay by credit card. Payment is due at the time of each therapy session. There

are only 2 or 3 insurance companies that I remain contracted with, so if you are hoping to use insurance

let me know in advance of any services. Note that insurance companies only pay for diagnosed mental illnesses. Life situational problems and marital/couple therapy are not covered. It would be both

unethical and illegal for me to build an insurance company for those types of services. This includes using

a diagnosis to bill for one person when actually doing couple therapy. 

If I am considered an out-of-network provider by your insurance company, I would be happy to give you a formal diagnostic statement and receipt that you may submit to your insurance company at any point

after you have paid me for one or more sessions. You can send this "super bill" to your company, and they

may reimburse you for some or all of what you have paid.
