Reasons I Do Not Take Insurance

Why Clinicians Do Not Take Insurance: These involve enhanced quality of care and other advantages: 


1. You are in control of your care, including choosing your therapist, length of treatment, etc.

2. Increased privacy and confidentiality (except for limits of confidentiality).  

3. Not having a mental health disorder diagnosis on your medical record.  

4. Consulting with me on non-psychiatric issues that are important to you that aren’t billable by insurance, such as learning how to cope with life changes, gaining more effective communication techniques for your relationships, increasing personal insight, and developing healthy new skills. 


** After reading my position on why I don’t accept health insurance, you still may decide to use your health insurance.  If you provide me with a list of therapists on your insurance provider list, I will do my best to recommend a therapist for you. 

No Surprises Act: You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate of what your services may cost.
