Insurance Note: Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services. We recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits: Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits? Does it cover Telehealth appointments? Do I have a deductible for Telehealth? If so, what is it and have I met it yet? Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit? Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered? We also accept out of network benefits. You may qualify for reimbursement from your insurance company.
