Aetna Insurance Plans-In Network
I am an in-network provider with Aetna, and I am also a Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network Provider. Please check to make sure my services are covered by your specifi plan. You must meet medical necessity in order to use your insurance to pay for therapy. I will only be able to bill your insurance for couples or marriage counseling if this service is included in your benefits. If marriage/couples therapy is an exclusion you will have to self pay for this service. I use Z Codes for partner therapy eg. Z63.0 Problems in relationship with spouse or partner because it is not possible to ethically diagnose a relationship with anxiety or depression. If I am out of network with your insurance company, Superbills can be generated for insurance company every month. Please contact your insurance company for detailed list of benefits and exclusions and obtain a reference number for records.
All Other Insurance Plans- Out of Network
Superbills can be generated for insurance company every month or end of session. Please contact your insurance company for detailed list of benefits and exclusions and obtain a reference number for records. You would still be responsible for oaying my full fee and any reimbursments from your insurance company should go directly to you.

Phone Consultation for Psychotherapy & Clnical Consultation
Are we a good fit?
Your phone consultation will provide you with an opportunity to ask questions and discuss what you’d like to achieve, explore, and experience in therapy or consultation before deciding whether to move forward with scheduling an initial 50 minute face-to-face session. You are not obligated to make any decisions at the end of the consultation, in fact I encourage anyone seeking therapy to be very selective and contact all of the therapists you were considering before making a decision.
Typical Questions I ask include:
Therapy & Consultation: Where did you hear about me? What brings you to therapy or consultation at this time? Have you been in therapy or consultation before? If so, what was most helpful or problematic about the experience? What are you hoping to experience, accomplish or discover during our time together? How long do you expect to need services? (e.g until I finish graduate school)
Therapy:I also encourage you to ask me any questions you may have. eg What is your general therapeutic orientation and approach? Are you available for phone sessions? How do you feel about medication? CBD?
Intake Process for Clients & Consultees
Should we both decide to move forward with therapy, supervision or consultation, I will creast and account for you using my HIPAA compliant client portal. My practice is 100% paper free. All intake forms, agreements, billing, and other miscellaneous forms are completed online at least 24 hours before your first session. You can always message me if you hae any questions 24/7 and I will respond during business hours.
I use a Telehealth by Simple Practice for all of my video conferencing sessions. Clients must reside in the state of Tennessee for services.
