Fees and Policies
Most sessions are 45 to 50 minutes in length. At the beginning of 50 minutes, I will take five minutes to collect your fee and schedule your next appointment. For the first visit please arrive 10 minutes early to complete initial paperwork and review confidentiality procedures. There is no need to arrive early if you print out the forms I email you and complete them prior to your appointment.
Please call me at 615.517.2413 or email with any questions or to request an appointment. I will make every effort to respond to you within 24 business hours. Sessions are 45 to 50 minutes.
To apply for a sliding scale fee, please bring your most current tax return for consideration. In order to apply, I will need a tax return at the first appointment to verify your income. Once I have that information, I will work on a financial agreement as part of the intake process and determine your sliding scale fee. With this system, no one is excluded based on income and quality therapeutic services can be afforded by all.
Payment in the form of check, cash, or credit card is due at the time of the session.
I do not process insurance claims. If your insurance provider allows "Out of Network Providers," you may request a receipt at the end of each session which can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement at whatever level they allow.
Advantages when you pay out of pocket include:
- Increased privacy that will not erode your right to privacy. Insurance companies require a "mental health disorder" diagnosis which can become a permanent part of your record.
- Freedom to begin treatment quickly without waiting for approval from your insurance company.
- Ability to select the therapist of your choice.
- You and your therapist decide the length of your treatment without insurance policy limits.
Please provide 24 hours notice when you must cancel your appointment. When you and I select a time for your appointment, I set that time aside for you, and I am unable to fill that time slot with someone else in need without adequate notification of cancellation. I will bill you for a missed appointment when you fail to provide a minimum of 24 hours notice.
