Do you accept Insurance?
We currently do not accept insurance, which means that we do not bill insurance companies directly. Your counseling services may be eligible for reimbursement through out-of-network benefits, medical spending or health care savings accounts. Health insurance plans and benefits vary. If you are interested in using your health insurance, please call your insurance provider to inquire about reimbursement for out-of-network counseling services. (See below for questions to ask your insurance company). We can provide you with a receipt at the end of each month which you can submit to your insurance company for out-of-network coverage/reimbursement. Sessions range from 40 minutes to 90 minutes and dependent upon the client's needs and goals.

If you would like to investigate the possibility of reimbursement for out-of-network coverage, please check your policy carefully and ask the following questions of your provider:
Benefits to pay privately.
Many clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan or session limits that health insurance companies dictate. Insurance companies often limit the number of sessions and even the type therapy.
By paying privately, we can assure private pay clients of the highest degree of privacy, flexibility and control of their mental health record allowed by Washington DC law, since our records are exempt from insurance reporting and random compliance audits. Our work is off record. It's also important to remember many insurance companies require a deductible to be met before they start paying, so you may be paying out of pocket anyway.
We will work collaboratively to decide how often to attend therapy and you decide what you want to focus on. You will have the control.
We are equipped to take most all major credit cards, checks and cash. We are offering discounted rates to all new clients. Our rates have been discounted 50% off for new clients through May 2017.
