Can I use my health insurance to cover therapy costs?
I do not accept or file insurance.
Insurance companies only cover services that are deemed medically necessary. To receive payment, providers are required to diagnose you with a mental illness in order for the services to qualify for coverage under insurance. Most of my clients are seeking mental health treatment for reasons that are not defined by a specific mental health disorder. They are seeking therapy to help repair relationships, recover from major life transitions or to simply improve their lives, making a mental health diagnosis inappropriate and unethical.
Insurance companies also require providers to contract at reduced rates, requiring higher caseloads. Because I have hundreds of hours of specialized training and extensive experience, I prefer to keep my caseload small so I can provide in depth and highly personalized attention to each client.
