Affordable & Accessible Counseling for Hope, Possibilities and Change
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is a confidential collaboration between the client and therapist. Considering this, I do not participate in any insurance programs as an in-network provider. I do not believe the insurance company should determine the dynamics, length or focus of therapy- that is between the therapist and client.
Counseling should be both accessible and affordable. I offer a sliding scale, as well as opportunities for short-term strategic counseling. As a Maryland licensed counselor (LCPC), I can work with you to obtain out-of-network reimbursement, by helping you provide necessary information to your insurance company.
I am willing to work with my clients to overcome hurdles associated with cost. As always, please contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns.
Good Faith Estimate-No Surprises Act
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance, or who are not using insurance, an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, which includes mental health care.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, which includes mental health care.
- You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
