Do you accept my insurance?
Fletcher Therapy is not affiliated with any insurance carriers, and we do not bill your insurance. If your insurance company offers “Out of Network” mental health coverage, I will be happy to provide you with a superbill to submit for possible reimbursement.
The reasons we are not currently “in-network” with insurance companies are related to your quality of care and confidentiality as a patient. In order for insurance to cover your visits, a therapist must diagnose you with a mental health disorder, which becomes a part of your medical record. The insurance provider then can access your records, and may determine how many sessions you may receive – even how many minutes long the sessions can be. These processes take away your control over your own healthcare, and can result in treatment delays and gaps. This prevents me from having the freedom to create what I feel is an appropriate treatment plan for each individual client.
What are your rates?
Therapy is an investment in your mental health and emotional wellbeing. Rates reflect a therapist’s years of experience and education.
Prices effective July 2022 for new patients and January 2023 for established patients:
Individuals – 50-minute session: $200.00
Couples/Families – 50-minute session: $225.00
Payment options: All major credit cards are accepted. I also accept HSA (Health Savings account) cards and FSA (Flexible Spending Account) cards.
How many visits, and how often?
I collaborate with you on a treatment plan that works for your goals and budget. In cases of crisis or acute issues, clients may come in more often until things stabilize. Other clients may make an appointment less frequently to touch base.
I am concerned about confidentiality.
With few exceptions, what we talk about in therapy is kept strictly confidential.
Regarding privacy in teletherapy, I use a secure, HIPAA compliant video platform.
Can I speak with you before making an appointment?
Yes. Choosing the right therapist is a big decision, and the fit between therapist and client is a key factor in a successful outcome in therapy. I offer free 20-minute telephone or video consultations to answer your questions and help you decide whether or not you would like to make an appointment. If you would rather contact me by email, that is fine, too.
Will you be seeing clients in person soon?
I hope so! While teletherapy has been both effective and popular with clients, I miss seeing people in my office. For now, for everyone’s safety, only teletherapy appointments are available.
Are you accepting new patients?
Right now my schedule is full, but I maintain a waiting list and try my best to accept new clients when I can, especially those dealing with issues like Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors and issues related to the HSP trait. You are always welcome to check with me.
