INSURANCE AND PAYMENT INFORMATION
Beginning May 2022, I am able to schedule new clients!
I am also available for consultation, supervision, and mentorship for other mental health professionals seeking this level of support. (Note: All non-therapy collaborations take place using a sliding scale payment system.)
I am in-network with Magellan, United Behavioral Health (Optum), Cigna (Evernorth Behavioral Health), Blue Choice PPO, and BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois (BCBSIL) PPO.
If BCBS PPO, Blue Choice PPO, Cigna/Evernorth, UBH/Optum, or Magellan is not your health plan but you're still interested in therapy, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Accessibility of therapy is EXTREMELY important to me.
If my starting fee is unaffordable, I may offer an income-based sliding fee for those who aren't covered by their insurance plans. In general, my hourly fee starts at $150 and slides as low as $0 according to your income, family size (for which you are financially responsible), and the financial resources available to you. I keep one pro bono spot on my caseload at a time. Please contact me directly to negotiate out-of-pocket rates. Please also note that if you are using your insurance to pay for therapy, I must adhere to the fee schedule they assign me, which may differ from the rate above. We can discuss this prior to the first appointment if you have concerns.
If I am not in network with your plan, you may still be eligible for out-of-network coverage for mental and behavioral health services; check in with your plan first if you are hoping to use this option. In unique cases, I may also be able to work out a "single case agreement (SCA)" with your insurance company. If it's still not the best fit or you need an in-network provider, I can help you find referrals that are more closely aligned with your needs.
I accept cash, personal checks, and all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express) via Square--or, if clients prefer, I can also use Google Pay or PayPal.
