If you know you would like to work with me for individual therapy, you can call or email to set up your first appointment. I will return your call within 48 hours with some available appointment times. See you soon!

Appointments must be made within 24 business hours before the session. If it is urgent, the best way to reach me is email: tamara@psychospiritualcounseling.net with URGENT Appointment Needed.

Regarding Insurance: Check with your insurance company to see if they accept superbills for psychotherapy services from out-of-network providers. If you have a PPO, you pay upfront and I then submit monthly superbill invoices to you for reimbursement. Many PPOs reimburse as much as 50% of your therapy bill.

Each company is different and reimburses a percentage of your fee or what they deem as standard. I have heard from my clients that some companies say they cover 50%, but with the co-pay it amounts to around 30% so be sure to validate their information. Other companies truly cover 50%. Be sure to ask how much they will reimburse for each session and figure in your deductible and co-pay for the most accurate estimate.

I do not sit on insurance panels.

I no longer see couples or families.
