If you are experiencing problems in your relationship we can help to provide you with the following:
Please note that we may not be a good fit to work together if there is current domestic abuse in your relationship. If we discover that we are not a good fit to work together we would be happy to offer you a referral to another qualified couples therapist.
We offer the option of paying for your sessions out-of-pocket or using insurance. Here are a few things to consider when deciding your method of payment:
Most insurance plans base their reimbursement of mental health services on what is called “medical necessity.” This means that you must carry a mental health diagnosis in order to justify treatment. Some people may feel uncomfortable with carrying a mental health diagnosis, as this diagnosis will become part of your permanent medical record, which could impact you in the future in terms of employment prospects or eligibility for future health or life insurance. When you self-pay for therapy there is no need to give a diagnosis, thus eliminating any of these concerns.
For example, insurance plans do not reimburse for couples counseling unless one partner is diagnosed with a disorder and the joint sessions are meant to help the “identified patient” to make progress in treatment or to prevent worsening of current symptoms. When you pay for therapy yourself, we can decide together what type of therapy is most appropriate without having to worry about insurance limitations.
