I believe in rates based on a person's budget. I hope we all find our best relationship with money that addresses access to resources and capitalism. Regardless of the fee you choose we’ll always be talking about it and making sure we both feel good about the energy exchange.
When choosing your fee I ask you to think about a few things. One consideration is if you hold identities that have historical systemic privilege that would increase your earning potential I ask you to consider moving up. I also hold spots for people impacted by specific systems and sliding up $5 or $10 supports that goal.
I understand we all have different financial responsibilities, student loans, rent, taking care of family, saving for the future, financial support from our families, and access to wealth so there are many variables in your budget. Income and budget aren't straight number values and picking a fee it is an opportunity for us to explore any feelings related to money. Above all I ask you to consider what feels sustainable and what fee rate honors your healing journey and the investment you’re making on that path.
I hold a few spots, $100 and below, for those who are system impacted meaning those who have been incarcerated, families/partners of those currently incarcerated, those in foster care, or those who have been through a deportation process, family currently in immigration/deportation process, forced hospitalization, or other oppressive system.
Fee is based specifically on what is right for you and your expenses. Please let me know your needs around fee so we can discuss it.
I accept cash, check, and all major credit/debit cards using IvyPay.
I am an "out of network provider". I can provide an itemized statement called a "superbill" for your insurance company. Many plans offer reimbursement for out of network care, you can confirm your specific benefits with your policy. When using an insurance plan to help pay for therapy and other mental health services, there are several factors to keep in mind. Most insurance plans require a mental health diagnosis, and maintain some types of access to treatment records. I believe that using insurance can allow access to needed therapeutic support, and I will work with you to ensure that your confidentiality is maintained as best as possible.
Your Right to a Good Faith Fee Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 368-1019
