Do you take Insurance?
To provide you with the most confidential and unrestricted services, I do not accept insurance, including EAP. Insurance companies require a diagnosis for treatment and often restrict treatment approach based on diagnosis. This limits my flexibility as a therapist to allow you a collaborative role in treatment planning. This also limits client’s privacy as reports must be provided to the insurance company and becomes a part of client’s medical record.
What is a Superbill?
Do you Offer a Superbill?
Yes. I can provide you with a superbill. A superbill is a receipt of services to include diagnosis. You can then provide this to your insurance company for possible reimbursement based on your policy’s benefits. If you have additional questions about this, you are able to call the customer service line on the back of your insurance card for more information.
Do you Offer a Sliding Scale?
At this time, I do not offer a sliding scale. In my experience, slide scales often judge financial status based on a limited number of factors. This can, often time, exclude those in financial hardship if they don’t meet set standards. I am happy to provide referrals to other clinicians or agencies that offer sliding scale or reduced fees.
Do you Offer In-Person Sessions?
I do offer in-person sessions. My office is located at 1511 Westport Rd, Suite A, Kansas City, MO 64111. Masks are not required, however if you are showing any COVID-19 related symptoms, I ask that you request to move your appointment to virtual or cancel your appointment and stay out of the office. I do not wear a mask in session, however I am more than willing to wear one for those who perfer.
Do you Offer Virtual Sessions?
I do offer virtual sessions for Missouri and Kansas residents. Virtual sessions are conducted similar to being in the office. We both need to be in a location that maximizes visual and auditory privacy. Sessions are held over a HIPAA compliant system (required to protect your privacy). When a virtual session is scheduled, you will receive an email with a link to join the session a few minutes before the scheduled time.
