What about Insurance?

*I am a private pay clinician, which means I am not in network with any insurance companies and do not accept insurance.*

*I can provide you with necessary documentation if you plan to use your out of network insurance benefits.*

This is a common question as there are therapists who take insurance and many who do not. Many people choose to use their insurance because it is cost effective, but you often decrease your ability to choose a provider who is a good match for what you need. This limits your choice in working with who you want to, especially in something as meaningful as therapy. For instance, some therapists who take insurance see large volumes of clients because they take a specific insurance, but they may not specialize in a certain area that a client needs support in.

Many people seeking therapy are not necessarily dealing with mental health disorders and are not diagnosable. When this is the case, your medical insurance is not going to cover treatment. Insurance will not just cover “I am having a hard time” or “I am struggling with self-esteem and confidence.” This does not mean that those concerns aren’t important to address and work through in therapy, it just means insurance doesn’t view them as “medically necessary”. Essentially, without a diagnosable disorder, most medical insurance will not cover treatment.

My decision to not be in network with insurance companies was made thoughtfully and for the reasons I have listed below. This decision was made from the beginning of opening my practice because I want you to be in control of your journey and growth, not insurance companies. I value the freedom and flexibility to tailor therapy to what you need, want, and hope for. As a result, we will not be restricted by a third party influencing our process.

Insurance-Related Barriers

  • Insurance companies only pay for services that are considered “medically necessary” and as a result require clinicians to label their clients with a mental health diagnosis.
  • We must “prove” that a mental health condition is affecting your health and overall functioning on a daily basis, which is not always applicable to those who are struggling with many of life’s difficulties and personal growth.
  • This would either result in coverage being denied or clinicians exaggerating (insurance fraud) the client’s symptoms to insurance companies to indicate medical need.
  • Treatment documents requested by insurance companies become a part of your permanent medical record. This can negatively impact your ability to secure future health insurance coverage and may impact certain career related background checks.
  • Insurance companies control the number of sessions a client can have. This is primarily based on symptom reduction and does not take into account continued struggles, personal growth, and preventive care.
  • Insurance companies have unlimited access to a client’s records, limiting your privacy.
