We are not an “in-network” provider with any insurance company. Insurance companies require a formal diagnosis for payment/reimbursement. You may be going through a difficult time in your life, which may not fit a formal mental health diagnosis. For example, if you’re seeking help for your relationship, “relational problems” is not an approved diagnosis for payment, which means we would have to assess and indicate a mental health diagnosis such as Depressive Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Adjustment Disorder and the like to submit to the insurance. Please do understand that being a self-pay practice helps avoid an unnecessary diagnosis as well as maintain the utmost level of privacy for you.

You can schedule your FREE 20-min consultation HERE if you’re unsure if we’re a right fit or have any questions before committing to working with us. If you’re ready to get started you can CLICK HERE.

The first session is always an intake session. We use this session for us to ask standard questions and collect background information to better understand the nature of your presenting problem/concern and your hope for the future, as well as for you to ask questions regarding the coaching process. It will allow us to get to know each other to start building an effective and meaningful coaching relationship. We will also review the session process, structure, policies, and procedures.
