What is the Fee for a Therapy Session?
Therapy sessions are $150 for a 50 minute session. I have a small number of spots reserved at a reduced fee for clients who are unable to afford my full fee. When these spots become available, they are advertised on the Open Path Collective website (https://openpathcollective.org).
What Types of Payment Do You Accept?
Major Credit Cards, HSA/FSA Cards, Cash and Check are accepted as payment for services. A valid credit card is securely kept on file and charged after your appointment unless another payment option has been arranged.
Do You Take Insurance?
Embodied. Counseling + Yoga, LLC does not accept insurance. The benefits to private pay are numerous, with the primary benefits being a greater level of privacy and control over your treatment. I believe in protecting the privacy of my clients. When a therapy session is billed through an insurance company, the insurance company often requires detailed documentation about your mental health including a diagnosis and updates regarding your progress. Some clients I work with do not meet criteria for a mental health diagnosis and some would prefer to have the details of their mental health treatment separate from their insurance/medical record. Additionally, insurance companies often limit the number of sessions they will pay for and restrict the therapeutic techniques which can be utilized during the treatment process.
What if I’m Still Interested in Using My Insurance?
If you prefer to use your insurance benefits for therapy, you may still be able to do so. As an Out of Network (OON) provider, I am able to provide you with a monthly Superbill which is a receipt for the payments you have made for therapy sessions. You may be able to submit this document to your insurance company for partial reimbursement of therapy services. This typically applies to PPO insurances. Please contact your insurance company directly for information regarding your eligibility and reimbursement rates. Please be aware that a mental health diagnosis is required to be provided to your insurance company for reimbursement if you utilize this option.
What is your Cancellation Policy?
If you are unable to attend your session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full rate of the session.
What Can I Expect Starting Therapy?
I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to learn a bit about why you are seeking therapy and see if it feels like a good fit. The first session is about getting comfortable with the process. You’ll be able to tell me a little more about what you hope to gain from therapy as well as your expectations about the therapeutic process. In the beginning, weekly sessions are common. Frequency is always tailored to individual needs.
