About Insurance

Insurance often includes benefits for outpatient mental health treatment. There are many variations in level of coverage between different employer groups, policies, and insurance companies. If you wish to use your insurance, please research your benefits, including these questions: Am I in network or out of network for your plan? What is your deductible, co-insurance rate or co-payment? How many sessions are you allowed in a year? If you are interested in couple or family therapy, are those services included? Are there any restrictions in terms of diagnoses covered?

Please be aware that in order to use your benefits, I will need to provide a diagnosis to your insurance company. This diagnosis and treatment becomes part of your health insurance record.

If I am in network for your insurance company, we will discuss your co-payment amount and billing. If I am out of network, it is customary for you to pay for services at the time of your appointment. I will provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

I am an in-network provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Illinois PPO products and Aetna.

About Private Pay

You may choose to pay privately for your therapy services. Many people choose this option as a way to secure their privacy and for increased independence in choices.

My rates are as follows:

Initial assessment: $150.00 / 50-60 minute session
Additional sessions: $120.00 / 50-minute session

For private pay clients, I do offer a sliding fee schedule with consideration of income. Please contact me to discuss this possibility.
