Do you accept insurance?

No, we do not work directly with insurance companies. However, if you have a PPO with out-of-network benefits, we will provide you with a special receipt, called a Super Bill, which you can submit to your insurance company to request any reimbursement you are eligible for through your health plan coverage. It is your responsibility to check what your benefits and deductibles are for out-of-network mental health services. 

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept all payment methods, including cash, checks, all major credit cards, and HSA/FSA accounts. 

What if I can't make it in to the office during your office hours?

We offer virtual appointments, either via phone or online, to our clients during our office hours. Our clients enjoy the flexibility this provides them to be able to actively participate in therapy, while still tending to the demands of their jobs. 

How can I schedule an appointment?

The first step is to schedule your Get Acquainted Call via our online scheduler. At your selected appointment time you will receive a 15-minute phone call from us to learn more about your specific situation and how we can help. If we decide it is a mutually beneficial fit,  you will then be offered an appointment for an initial visit.
