Frequently asked questions
Why I prefer to not take insurance:
necessity’ for services. This requires a diagnosis that is severe enough to be impacting your
daily functioning, and means that direct billing to insurance from a provider has to have a strong
justification for your diagnosis and how it impairs you. The insurance company requires a treatment
plan, goals, itemized issues, and how we are resolving your issues, along with a set number of
visits. I want to protect my client’s privacy.
2) My clients are typically not so impaired in their day to day functioning that it is
significant. Most of my clients are educated, high functioning, successful people who are simply
having a difficult time and need a caring professional to assist with clarity, to meet with to
discuss thoughts and feelings, set goals, be accountable, and uncover their strengths.
3) Dealing with insurance is difficult and I would spend more time on paperwork than doing what I
do best; which is helping my clients find the path to live their best life.
4) With my services, you do not meet a deductible, get a referral, and we usually
complete your goals ASAP. It is my ‘job’ to work myself out of a job!
