I do not contract with any insurance companies. You may request a “paid in full” receipt from me to submit to your insurance company in case they are willing to cover part of your payment to me. I do not communicate with insurance companies. Be aware that insurance companies often require a diagnosis that remains on your record and could be viewed as a pre-existing condition. Also most insurance does not cover marriage/couple counseling.

You have a right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. A diagnosis is also included..
