Individual Psychotherapy Process
Treatment is tailored to the individuality of the patient. Therefore, a comprehensive assessment is conducted in the first few sessions in order to obtain relevant clinical information about the presenting problem and to determine the best course of treatment. After the assessment process, you will work with your therapist to identify & outline your treatment goals and your provider will develop a treatment plan that is tailored to the client’s diagnosis and clinical history. The length of treatment varies per client as it depends on the specifics of your treatment plan and progress that is performed in treatment.
Payment is expected at the time of service; payable by credit card. Client’s are required to have a credit card on file in order to secure their appointment. In addition, a credit card authorization form will be given to the client which allows the provider to charge the credit card automatically at the time of service on a weekly basis. Although the practice is private pay only and does not accept insurance, you will be provided with a “superbill” which has the necessary information required by your insurance company to submit a claim for out-of-network reimbursement. You are responsible for understanding and verifying the limits of your insurance coverage; as there are no guarantees for reimbursement. Superbills are provided to all clients through the online portal on a monthly basis. These are a few questions you can ask your insurance provider:
- Do you offer reimbursement for out-of-network mental health providers?
- What percentage of each visit will be covered?
- Do I need preauthorization for psychotherapy?
- What is the deductible that must be met before coverage?
- How do I submit claims for out-of-network reimbursement?
Good Faith Estimate
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act (PHSA), health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request, or at the time of scheduling health care items and services to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
You are entitled to receive this “Good Faith Estimate” of what the charges could be for psychotherapy services provided to you. While it is not possible for a psychotherapist to know, in advance, how many psychotherapy sessions may be necessary or appropriate for a given person, this form provides an estimate of the cost of services provided.
You have a right to initiate a dispute resolution process if the actual amount charged to you substantially exceeds the estimated charges stated in your Good Faith Estimate (which means $400 or more beyond the estimated charges).
You are encouraged to speak with your provider at any time about any questions you may have regarding your treatment plan, or the information provided to you in this Good Faith Estimate.

What is your cancellation policy?
Therapy sessions are typically scheduled as 50 minute sessions once a week. Once an appointment is scheduled you will be expected to pay for the session unless you provide a minimum of 24-business hours advance notice of cancellation. If you do not cancel your appointment at least 24 hours ahead of time or do not show for your appointment, you will be charged for the cost of service unless you were unable to attend due to unforeseen circumstances. This policy is enforced to ensure that services can be provided to others in the case that you are unable to attend. It is important to note that insurance companies do not provide reimbursement for no show or late cancellation appointments; therefore you will be responsible for the payment of the missed session.
