ALL PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE
New “No Surprise” Billing Regulations for Behavioral Health Care Providers
The No Surprises Act aims to increase price transparency and reduce the likelihood that clients receive a “surprise” medical bill by requiring that providers inform clients of an expected charge for a service before the service is provided.
Starting January 1, 2022, behavioral health care providers will be required by law to give uninsured and self-pay clients a "good faith estimate" of costs for services when scheduling care or when the client requests an estimate. If you plan on using your insurance, it is the clients responsibility to know your benefits, check how much is your copay, deductible, individual out of pocket, family out of pocket, and number of visits allowed per year. We verify insurance as a courtesy to clients and any benefits quoted to you or to our office by insurance IS NOT A GUARENTEE OF PAYMENT. This means if insurance does not pay, you the client is responsible for payment and can use the "Good Faith Estimate" below to help you know what you might owe.
"Good Faith Estimate" for Uninsured, Private Pay, or Patient Responsibility
-All therapeutic services start with the initial first appointment to complete formal diagnosis and treatment plan. Prior to the first appointment your estimated diagnosis is F99 - Unspecified mental disorder.

-Routine treatment usually starts once a week to no less than once every other week for the first four sessions to build rapport, establish stability, and consistency. You can schedule your first four sessions all at once, after your first appointment. Once you get towards your 4th session, together with your therapist you decide whether to stay weekly, once every 2 weeks, once every 3 weeks, or once a month. Below is a detailed list of pricing per service that may be billed so you can estimate what your treatment may cost. Our job is to help decrease frequency of your visits and increase independent stability. Our business model works ourselves out of a job and gets you to a "call us when you need us basis." Your diagnosis may change after your initial appointment, once we have had a proper opportunity to assess your needs.
-The list of services and cost are estimates for people who do not qualify for sliding scale. If you need financial assistance in paying for services, please contact us to discuss sliding scale or reduced fees. Our providers have a few appointments per month reserved for clients who need assistance. To qualify for sliding scale, you must prove your household income for the last 3 years.

Counseling means guidance. Individuals and families can learn new perspectives, coping skills, and positive behavior changing techniques through the counseling process.
The first step is a clinical intake provided by one of our Intake Specialist. The clinical intake is "kind of like" an interview. The intake will help us tailor your individual treatment plan and the Intake Specialist will help decide which therapist will be the best fit for you.
After the treatment plan is agreed on, treatment sessions will be scheduled. Sessions usually start out once a week for four weeks until stability is achieved and then reduce to once every two weeks, to once a month, and so on until you are at a "I'll call my therapist when I need to" basis.
