INSURANCE AND PAYMENT INFORMATION
I am 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 do not have immediate availability for new therapy clients; there is a waitlist beginning in January 2024.
For therapy clients, 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.
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 Zelle or PayPal.
