Rates & Insurance

Please contact via email, phone call, or set up a consultation to begin your journey of healing and becoming your best self.

All sessions are conducted via telehealth during this time

A sliding fee scale is available.

My prices are set to ensure clients are provided with quality care and attention. Once the reserved slots for financial adjustments are full, I recommend seeking quality low-cost mental health services within the area.

Insurance

Medicaid is accepted.

I am not currently an in-network provider for any commercial insurance panels at this time. However, a statement can be provided for billing upon request to submit for reimbursement for the client’s designated need.

Please contact your health care provider to verify plans, compensation as it related to coverage and cost.

Payment

Payments are accepted in the form of a credit card and are automatically processed before or after each session through Simple Practice software.

*Full payment is required at the time of service and will be accepted before the session.

Cancellation Policy

If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the cost of the session as booked. If you have missed your appointment or were unable to call within 24 hours to cancel, and the cause was not due to illness or extenuating circumstances, the full cost of the session will be charged.  I do this to ensure that I can help as many people as possible.
