I am an out-of-network provider for all other insurances. If you have mental health insurance benefits you may be eligible to submit a claim for reimbursement of out-of-network services. While insurances may reimburse for in person therapy sessions, please note that online sessions will likely not be eligible for reimbursement.

I suggest that you contact your insurance company to ask questions about out of network coverage for your specific insurance plan.

  • Do I have out-of-network mental health benefits?

  • Are services rendered by a licensed clinical social worker covered?

  • If I have out-of-network benefits, will I be reimbursed the full amount I paid or a portion?

  • Do I have a deductible and if so, what is it?
