Regarding Insurance: Check with your insurance company to see if they accept superbills for psychotherapy services. If you have a PPO, I submit monthly superbill invoices to you for reimbursement.
You will be required to fill out their form and submit my superbill each month to be reimbursed for your therapy. Each company is different and reimburse a percentage of your fee or what they deem as standard. Be sure to ask how much they will reimburse for each session.
Lower fee in-person appointments are offered based on need and availability through Open Path Collective.
I am part of Open Path Psychotherapy Collective which is a nationwide network of mental health professionals dedicated to providing in-office mental health care—at a steeply reduced rate—to individuals, couples, children, and families in need.
If you are in need of affordable counseling, I currently have 1 low-fee slot remaining for individual psychotherapy for those whose income is $25,000/year or less or $40,000/year or less when in a partnership where you share money. If you make between $25,000 – $35,000, I also have another affordable therapy slot that is a mid-range fee. In the interest of ensuring that those who need this slot get it, proof of income is required. Please do not inquire about a lower fee unless you are in the income bracket listed above.
