WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?

My rates vary depending on time and issues treated (counseling, coachings, etc.).

Please read below for valuable information about choosing the right counselor, rates, and insurance. 

Understandably, I’m aware that your choice of counselor and coach may be influenced by the fee per session. As you choose your counselor, also consider:

  • What kind of counselor you want. Do you want a marriage and family therapist, a sex therapist, trauma therapist, or a life coach? Each counselor has their own specialties and experience.
  • Consider his/her life and professional experiences. Take a look at their About Me, About My Company, and social media profiles. You’ll learn if a particular counselor is right for you. Unlike most other medical professions, you should feel you can connect to your counselor.
  • Costs matter. Do make sure it is affordable. Also, realize it can be the wisest and best investment you make, as you’re investing in yourself. If you had a toothache you’d go to the dentist, as you know the impact of not going. Unfortunately, when it comes to mental and emotional pain, people often neglect themselves. Just like a toothache, mental and emotional health can decay. Take your mental and emotional health just as serious as other health concerns. After all, stress is by far the culprit in most health issues.
  • Consider location. Is the counseling and coaching practice private? Are there several entrances? Is there plenty of parking? One of the great perks my office has to offer is plenty of restaurants and even the movies within walking distance. My couples take advantage of dining before or after counseling. Okay, maybe adding counseling isn’t the hottest date, but my couples seem to like it!
  • Check their availability. Make sure you can get the times you like. I always ask my clients to give me their ideal times. Then, I go out of my way to make sure, eventually, I give them that time. Otherwise, you may get into a problem moving things around – therapy can start to feel like a chore at that point.

Unfortunately, like any service, people can spend a lot of time and money with minimal improvement. Taking the time to consider if a counselor is right for you is beneficial. I try to give plenty of information within my website to assist you in making an informed decision.

I also spend the last 15 minutes of the first session to review a timeline and potential costs.

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?

Yes, I accept most insurances. Call to find out if I’m on your insurance panel.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO USE MY INSURANCE?

Some people choose not to use their insurance, as they want the utmost privacy. I’m available to answer any insurance-related questions. Due to the rising costs of health care, insurance benefits have become more complex.

You should also be aware that most insurance companies require a mental health disorder diagnosis. Diagnoses are technical terms that describe the nature of your problems and whether they are short-term or long-term problems. All diagnoses come from a book titled the DSM-V. At times, I have to provide additional clinical information such as treatment plans or summaries, or copies of the entire record. This information will become part of the insurance company files and will probably be stored in a computer. Though all insurance companies claim to keep such information confidential, I have no control over what they do with it once it is in their hands. In some cases, they may share the information with a national medical information databank.

IS COUPLE THERAPY COVERED BY MY INSURANCE?

Couple therapy is not covered by most insurance plans. You will need to check with your insurance to ensure that couple therapy is covered.
