Payment

investment

Therapy is an investment in yourself and your family's long-term well-being. Just as we have routine physicals with our primary care physician, teeth cleanings with our dentist, and eye check-ups with our optometrist - meeting with a therapist can help with both preventative and palliative care. Mental well-being leads to physical and holistic long-term well-being.

INsurance

I am an Out of Network provider and do not accept insurance. Why? Ultimately, to provide more flexible, personalized, high-quality treatment for my clients with increased confidentiality.

Some benefits of doing therapy with an Out of Network provider:

  • Increased confidentiality: Insurance companies require detailed information about your mental health care that becomes part of your permanent medical health record. Working with an Out of Network provider ensures that whatever is discussed in the therapy room, stays in the therapy room.

  • No unnecessary diagnosis: Insurance companies require in-network clinicians to provide a diagnosis for their clients - regardless if the client actually needs a diagnosis or not. This diagnosis, especially for minors, can follow you into adulthood in your permanent medical health record. Working with an Out of Network provider ensures that you are not receiving unnecessary diagnosis that may have implications for your future.

  • Increased treatment autonomy: Insurance companies have a specific list of providers that you can choose from. With an Out of Network providers, YOU get to choose which clinician you want to work with and the clinician has more flexibility with providing personalized care based on your specific needs.

Cancellation policy

Austin Family Counseling, the group private practice I work for, has a 24-hour cancellation, no-show, rescheduling policy. If you are unable to make a prescheduled appointment time, please let me know at least 24 hours in advance to avoid being charged the late fee which is the cost of the full session.
