All individual and family therapy sessions last 50 minutes. I am licensed to work with people in Michigan and New York states. *Michigan residents please know I currently do not see people who live in the Metro Detroit area.
If you are interested in working with me please contact me to discuss what your fee might be.
I also offer a 15% reparation discount to Black and Indigenous individuals and families.
Why do I and a lot of other therapists do not take insurance? I want to be transparent about this.
Here is how insurance companies can negatively impact the therapist:
· Insurance companies bottom line is to save money, meaning they want to pay out as little as possible. It is an often occurrence that a therapist can be working for months with a client and still not have been paid for any sessions.
· Not only do therapists have to spend hours filling out paperwork to get paid, they often have to spend hours on the phone fighting to get paid.
· Also, if a therapist does get paid, an insurance company can come back, retroactively, and say we don’t think this client needed this treatment and require the therapist to pay back all of the money they received from the insurance company.
Unfortunately, because of my own finical structure, not being able to hire a biller to do all of this work for me and due to my own cognitive disabilities, I am unable to have the bandwidth to take on these insurance companies or have the ability to not get paid on time for my work.
*I understand that some people absolutely have to use insurance. If you are struggling to find someone feel free to still email me and I will see if I can help you find a therapist that works for you and takes your insurance.
Out of Network Benefits
If you have out of network benefits, your insurance might cover all or some of your fees for therapy. Please feel free to ask me about this and I can send you a list of questions to ask your insurance.
