    Insurance

    I have made an intentional choice in my practice to not accept insurance. I approach mental health treatment from a holistic and wellness perspective that is not dependent on insurance companies who often dictate treatment. As a private pay therapist, I do not have to assign you a diagnosis of a mental illness or release any medical records (unless I am court ordered). As a client of a private pay therapist, you have full control over your own treatment options including what therapist you use, length of therapy, frequency, etc.

    Reimbursement from Insurance

    Some clients have chosen to pursue insurance reimbursement, or out of network benefits, for sessions. To find out if you have out of network benefits you can call the number on the back of your insurance card and speak to someone in customer service. If so, I can provide you with a monthly statement called a superbill to possibly get reimbursed. If you choose to utilize your out of network benefits, please be aware that you are allowing your insurance company to have access to your mental health treatment and will require a diagnosis from me (see statement above).

    How is Payment Accepted?

    Payments are made via credit card on our secure online portal. When you complete your intake paperwork you will also complete a credit card authorization form. Credit cards are automatically charged after each session is complete.

    Cancellation Policy

    If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session. Appointments canceled or rescheduled with more than 24-hours notice will not be charged.

    Social Media Policy

    Ethical guidelines and codes prohibit “friending” between the client and therapist on any social media platform in order to preserve the therapeutic relationship. You may choose to follow JB Counseling LLC’s Facebook page for any updates, resources, blogs, or tips at your own discretion. Since the page is used for informational purposes only there will be no interacting between therapist and client. If you need to get in touch with me please utilize the phone or secure messaging on the online portal.

    Any Other Questions

    Your intake paperwork will include further policies and procedures. Please contact me for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
