  • Insurances Accepted

    I accept Blue Cross & Blue Shield. 

    I am also an "out of network provider", which means that I do not bill insurance companies directly, with exception of BCBS. However, your counseling services may be eligible for reimbursement through out-of-network benefits, medical spending or health care savings accounts. Health insurance plans and benefits vary. If you are interested in possible reimbursement, please call your insurance provider to inquire about out-of-network counseling services. (See below for questions to ask your insurance company). I will provide you with a receipt at the end of each month which you can submit to your insurance company for out-of-network coverage/reimbursement.

    If you would like to investigate the possibility of reimbursement for out-of-network coverage, please check your policy carefully and ask the following questions of your provider:

    • Do I have mental health benefits?
    • What is my deductible and has it been met?
    • How many mental health sessions per calendar year does my insurance plan cover?
    • How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network mental health provider?
    • How do I obtain reimbursement for therapy with an out-of-network provider?
    • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
    • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

    Reasons to pay privately or “Out of Pocket”

    Many clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan, or session limits that health insurance companies dictate. Insurance companies often limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy. Many insurance companies do not cover couples/relational or family therapy.

    To have therapy services covered under insurance, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This then becomes a part of your permanent health care record. This may lead to limitations such as denial for quality life insurance or health insurance later on. Additionally, since a mental health diagnosis must be made to obtain reimbursement, the insurance company has to know a lot of information about you to be covered. The insurance company can review all of your records at their discretion.

    By paying privately or out of pocket, we can assure private pay clients of the highest degree of privacy, flexibility and control of their mental health record allowed by Arizona state law.

    In addition, many insurance companies require a deductible to be met before they start paying, so you may be paying out of pocket anyway.

    We will work collaboratively to decide how often to attend therapy and you decide what you want to focus on. You have the control, not the insurance company.

    Payment 
    Blue Cross & Blue Shield, cash, check, HSA, and all major credit cards accepted for payment. 

    Cancellation Policy

    If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay $50.
