Therapy: An Investment in Yourself

Consider therapy as an investment in yourself and your relationships. By addressing the issues you're seeking support for, you'll free up your mind and heart to be more productive and passionate about life. This ultimately supports your potential to create a life worth living!

In my experience, therapy works best when done at least once a week for 6 months to a year. It's an investment of time and energy to process the issues holding you back from living your best life. While you may have a budget, remember that you're investing in your future self, and you are worth every penny!

Understanding the Cost of Your Investment

Therapy is an important investment in yourself, and you deserve to know the costs involved. You have the right to request a "Good Faith Estimate," which will provide a detailed breakdown of the fees you can expect over the course of your treatment. Effective therapy is typically once a week for 6 months to a year. If you would like a Good Faith Estimate, please ask during our introductory call.

Insurance and Billing Information

If you would like a super-bill to submit to your insurance, I can provide one for each session through Ivy Pay.

Holistic Spirit Psychotherapy does not directly take insurance. However, I partner with third-party processors that accept Aetna, Optum, Cigna, United, Oxford, and Oscar insurances.

If you are interested in direct billing to your insurance, please inquire during the free 15-minute introductory call, and I will direct you to our third-party partners.

A Note for Kaiser Clients: Kaiser does not allow for self-referral. I partner with companies to which Kaiser can provide a referral if their evaluation deems medical necessity in your case. I am listed on their websites. Please inquire about which companies to ask for a referral to during the free 15-minute introductory call.

According to most insurance policies, coverage for therapy is provided only if your presenting issues meet the standards of medical necessity. This includes disruptions in functioning at work, in relationships, or in other important areas of life, or if you are experiencing significant distress related to symptoms of a qualifying diagnosis. While you are always welcome to attend therapy for personal growth, insurance does not currently recognize this as a medical need. Therefore, growth-focused therapy would require you to pay the full fee out of pocket.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost 

Under the 2021 No Surprises Act, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical services, including psychotherapy.
 

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency services. 

  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. 

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. 

  • Make sure to save a copy or take a picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
