Insurance

Working with insurance companies requires that I make a DSM-V (The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) diagnosis and provide them with what can be quite private information about you. While I work to destigmatize mental illness and de-shame healthy sexuality, I also understand that many, if not most, of my clients value strict confidentiality above all else when working through personal, relationship and sexuality issues. Being on insurance panels as a provider often compromises aspects of what I believe to be a genuine and trusting client-therapist relationship—namely that one must be mentally ill to need or benefit from therapeutic services. Further, most insurance providers do not cover couple/relationship therapy, forcing clinicians to diagnose just one person from the couple or to provide a diagnosis that is different, or only loosely related to, what they are actually working on with the client(s) in order to be reimbursed. This is fraudulent—it is illegal and unethical—and it is not something I will do.

While I do not accept insurance, I am happy to provide you with a super bill for you to submit to your insurance company/healthcare plan (e.g., out of network, flexible/health spending account, etc.) for possible reimbursement.

I understand that therapy can be a big investment of both time and money, but I believe you and your well-being are worth far more. With the right therapist and a willingness to engage in the process, therapy can be extremely effective and valuable. Having healthy relationships, and feeling free of depression, guilt, shame, confusion, stress, and pain is truly priceless.
