Therapy is an investment of your time, finances, and emotional energy. It is also one of the biggest investments you can make in yourself and your relationship. Compare the financial cost of short-term therapy to the possible long-term emotional costs of NOT seeking help: The benefits far outweigh the risks.

I do not participate with any insurance panels and am considered an out-of-network provider.
Bypassing insurance allows the flexibility and privacy for my clients. By not utilizing insurance I am not required to provide a mental health diagnosis, I’m also able to keep your records completely secure and confidential.
There will be no diagnosis on your permanent health record, and no one will ever know you’re in therapy unless you tell them.
For Couples and Families
Marriage and Family counseling is not covered under most health insurance plans, regardless of whether or not a therapist is in-network with an insurance company.
For insurance to reimburse for counseling, the therapist must diagnose the client with a mental health disorder, and there is no reimbursable diagnosis code for marriage or family counseling.
The only way a therapist can bill insurance for marriage counseling is by assigning a mental health diagnosis to one partner and then submitting claims to the insurance company as if they are treating that person’s mental illness.
Options and things to consider
I provide courtesy billing for all my clients who request this service free of charge. What this means for you as a client is that I will prepare and send all necessary documents to your insurance so you can either get reimbursed at the Out-of-Network rate (the amount varies from provider to provider, but is usually enough to buy yourself dinner-great self-care!) or the insurance company may choose to apply your session fee to your deductable.
Please be aware that in order for insurance to consider your claim they will need me to provide them with a Mental Health Diagnosis.
You can use pre-tax dollars. You can use your HSA or FSA plan to pay for therapy. This allows you to use your pre-tax**Please note that HSA accounts make it harder to get couples therapy covered, so check on that before you get started.
Speak with your tax preparer to see if you could deduct therapy expenses from your taxes as an out-of-pocket health expense.
