The winds of grace are always blowing, but you
must be the one to raise your sail.
Payment and Insurance
At this time, the only insurance companies I bill directly are Lifewise, PacificSource and Kaiser (if authorized by Kaiser).
I also work with many clients who have other insurance plans on an out-of-network basis. Not all plans offer this option; if you are uncertain about yours, I recommend you contact your insurance company directly and ask the following questions:
•Does my plan have an out-of-network option for outpatient mental health?
•If it does, is there a separate deductable?
•If no deductable, what percentage of out-of-network costs does my plan cover?
•Is there any pre-authorization required for out-of- network services?
Clients may also choose to pay the discounted, out-of-pocket rate and then seek reimbursement from their insurance company. I will be happy to provide any documentation of services and payments which may be required.
All fees, including co-pays, are due at the time of service. Payment may be made by cash, check, or credit card. Credit cards will be charged an additional $1.00 per transaction to cover the rising costs of providing this service.

In special situations, exceptions to the fee policy and rates may be negotiated. Please let me know if you have circumstances that create a hardship.
