Fees

Self Pay

Your initial 15 minute consultation is free. After that, my fee is $130 due at the beginning of each session. I accept payment via cash, check, health savings account (HSA), debit card, credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover). 

I currently do not have any sliding scale slots available for new clients. 

 

Insurance

I am an in-network provider with Aetna, and I am also a Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network  Provider. 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. Payments may not count towards your deductible for services that are not covered by insurance even if I am in network . 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.

15 Minute Phone  Consultation

Are we a good fit?

Complete the contact form to schedule a consultation. 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 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:

Where did you hear about me? What brings you to therapy at this time? Have you been in therapy before? If so, what was most helpful or problematic about the experience? What are you hoping to experience, accomplish or discover in therapy? How long do you expect to come for therapy?

 

I also encourage you to ask your therapist 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?

***As my preference is for in person sessions, I only provide video conferencing to clients who travel frequently , during instances of inclement weather and other special circumstances eg COVID 19 Pandemic***

Intake Paperwork

My practice is 100% paper free. All intake paperwork, agreements, billing, and other miscellaneous forms are completed online using my HIPAA compliant client portal.

Telemedicine

I use a Telehealth by Simple Practice for all of my video conferencing sessions. Clients must reside in the state of Tennessee for services.
