Therapy is a financial investment that doubles as an opportunity to improve your quality of life in all areas. What does this investment look like? As I am not the traditional monogamous therapist, my rates are different to include those of the poly community fairly. When you include more than two people in a session, more people need to be heard and seen but it is important to all be on the same page in the relationship. So what do you get by working with me?
- Every individual, couple, and polycule starts with a 2-hour intake. This is where we dive right in and take the time to discover what your most important goals and questions are to give us a place to start that best fits you and your situation.
- All sessions are 90 minutes until your goals are met. Unlike most therapists, I will not tell you what your schedule is; I understand everyone has different lives, and it can be hard to gather everyone at the same time every week. That means that you pick what works best for you – whether it’s weekly, every other week, or even once a month.
- Check-ins between appointments are also available. Let’s face it, life happens, and sometimes you can’t wait until your next appointment. I generally give quick responses to emails, phone calls, and secure messaging through the client portal (which is optional of course).
- Convenient online scheduling with flexible hours; I see you introverts, I got you fam. You can easily set up appointments online with me, and if you can’t make the same time/day from week to week or month to month, I completely understand.
- Google Calendar with everyone’s appointments, dates, birthdays, and holidays can sometimes be confusing and frustrating. No worries, I set you up with Automatic appointment reminders, so you know when your next appointment is, and I’ll provide you with the link in the same message so you will never have to go looking for it.
What About Insurance?
As an LPC Associate, I cannot personally work with insurance companies; I wouldn’t if I could anyway. I say this because most insurance companies want to control what your therapy involves, when, how often, and when it ends – regardless of your needs; I would rather YOU be in control of your therapy. Most insurance companies do not cover marriage therapy anyway. Even though I am considered out-of-network, you can still feel free to reach out to your provider to see if you qualify for reimbursement for any out-of-pocket expenses. I am happy to provide you with a Superbill that you can submit to your insurance company if you would like to seek reimbursement. If you use HSA or FSA, you can reach out to them so see if they cover couples therapy as well. Lastly, there have been clients that were able to deduct their therapy expense as an out-of-pocket medical expense; so, reach out to your tax advisor or accountant to determine your eligibility.
