General Information Regarding Payment for Services:

Payment is due at time of service. 

Acceptable forms of payment are Cash, Check, or major Credit Cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover).  You can also use your flexible spending account or your HSA account for payment.  If you'd like to use your insurance and have out of network benefits, I can provide you with a receipt for services so that you can get reimbursed by your plan.  I do both individual and group counseling for women in the Waltham area in Massachusetts & California.

 

CANCELLATION POLICY:

Regularly seen clients are in charge of booking their own appointments through my online booking system. You may book appointments in advance, but please note that I need 24 hours notice of any cancellations, and cancellations must be made online through the website. If you need to cancel within 24 hours, please call me directly, and note that this will result in full billing of the scheduled time, $175.00.

 

Your First Appointment:

Once we figure out a good time to meet, I'll give you a link to my online system to register as a new client.  Don't worry, it's encrypted & secure.  Here, you'll fill out information to register as a new client, and then you'll get access to my online booking system!  

Wondering About Insurance? Here's the deal:

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance even if I am not a provider for your plan.  You are responsible for any payment at the time of your session.

 

You can check with your insurance carrier by asking them:

  • Do I have mental health benefits?
  • What is my deductible? Has it been met?
  • How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
  • How much will you cover for an out-of-network provider?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Do I need approval from my PCP?

You can also utilize a medical savings plan (HSA) for payment, if you have one.

If I don't accept your insurance directly, don't give up yet!

I am an out of network provider for many plans!  This means you can call your behavioral healthcare provider and ask if they will reimburse you for payments for an out of network therapist.  Surprisingly, many plans will.  Basically, this means you will pay my fee up front and then your insurance will cut you a check to reimburse you all or part of this amount.  There's more info about this here.

 

There are also two apps that can help with this process, should you find it too time consuming and complicated:

Reimbursify is another app that can help with insurance reimbursement.  

What if I think I need medication?

In holistic psychotherapy, medication is seen as an adjunct to whole health, as are many other methods of altering body chemistry - like yoga, nutrition, cardio exercise, acupuncture, and massage. I work closely with several area psychiatrists, clinical nurse specialists, and holistic health practitioners, and together we can decide if medication is the right tool for you at this time.
