How long will the process take?
This answer is tricky. I wish I had a clear answer for this but really this is dependent on you. Each client is different, has different needs and may need a combination of different services. I've had some clients come in for a couple months and feel like they have gotten their lives back on track, some clients I have seen for over a year. Either way, you can start and stop services whenever feels right for you.
How do I schedule an appointment?
The easiest way is to schedule from the home page of this website, which shows you my current calendar. It saves us some back and forth. However, texts or emails are the quickest way to get ahold of me as I can respond between sessions and send you some options. Both my business line (which recieves text messages) and my email are listed in the header and footer of this page.
Do you take insurance?
The short answer is no. In order for services to be deemed "medically necessary" all insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis. I can provide a superbill if we have decided there is a diagnosis that fits and you would like to seek reimbursement from your insurance. This is basically an in depth receipt that I give you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement or to put towards your deductible. It is not a guarantee with your insurance but it can sometimes help.
Do you see clients in-person?
Currently I am living out of the state and have client's all over the great state of Idaho, so 100% of my sessions are by video. Occasionally I come to Idaho for various business events, and will notify client's if I will be in their area to ask if they would like to have a session in person. This is up to each individual client at that time. Some clients prefer to remain telehealth.
What is the No Surprises Act?
The No Surprises Act was created to protect consumers by requiring all providers are upfront and honest with the expected cost of treatment with the use of a Good Faith Estimate. This estimate will be provided to you when you receive your initial paperwork.
What is a Good Faith Estimate?
This Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created, and does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment.
