Insurance

I currently accept Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama.  If that is your insurance, you just pay the copay at the time of service.  The amount of that copay depends on your specific plan.

If you have a different insurance plan, you can still get part of the cost of therapy reimbursed.

If you would like to seek reimbursement for my therapy services, first inquire with your insurance plan about what information they need in order to provide coverage (or whether they even cover couples treatment).  I can then work with you to provide the required documentation.  This is usually what is called a "superbill", which has the cost and nature of services on it.

 

This is actually much easier than you would think.  Apps like Reimbursify make the process almost painless, for a minimal fee.  You can just take a photo of your superbill and upload it, and they take care of the rest and send you the reimbursement.

FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the difference between counseling and therapy?  Do you offer both?

These terms do not have an officially-recognized distinction.  Informally though, counseling refers to addressing difficulties of navigating current or future concerns, while therapy leans more heavily into what has already happened in your life (in order to figure out how you got here or to address past injuries) while also addressing the present and future.  I can tailor your services to maximize the efficiency of your time but also provide maximum benefit.  Talk to me about what you want out of therapy!

What forms of payment do you take?

I take credit cards, cash, and checks.

Do you offer evening appointment times?

There are limited evening appointments available.

Do you offer teletherapy (remote therapy over video)?

Yes!

Can I make an appointment for my child?

Sure.  I see clients who are 14 and over.  Remember, Alabama law states that they have the right to independently consent or not consent to therapy services.

Can I talk to you about my child's appointments/progress?

Confidentiality is extremely important and legally protected.  Therefore I can only discuss details of your child's therapy, provided they sign a written release allowing me to discuss their therapy with you.

Is your office accessible to someone with mobility restrictions?

Unfortunately my office is on the second floor, and there is no elevator.  However, I am happy to provide services from the comfort of your home via teletherapy.

Will you prescribe medication for my condition?

I personally do not prescribe medication.  I would be happy to refer you to someone who does.
