My office space is designed to be comfortable and inviting. It is important to me that you feel safe in this space, and can relax into your most authentic self. The building is handicap accessible from the rear entrance, with elevators located in the lobby. If ever you need accommodations for handicap accessibility, please notify me. I will make every effort to ensure we can create an accessible, comfortable, and convenient space for your needs, during our work together. 
My practice is affirming regardless of race, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious, and spiritual beliefs. All are valued and welcomed! 

insurance/self-pay

I am recognized as an in-network provider with Aetna, Optum, and BlueCross BlueShield Anthem of GA, and am recognized as an out-of-network provider for all other major health insurance companies. For payment with out-of- network companies, Clients pay for sessions in full and, upon request, are provided a monthly invoice with dates of service, fees and the medical codes needed for you to submit your insurance claims.

If you choose to use in-network benefits (Aetna, Optum, BCBS), I will submit claims on your behalf. You will be responsible for your co-pay and any portion of the session fee that is not covered by your insurance. If you want to know what amount you can expect to pay out of pocket,  contact the customer service for your provider. All policies, rates, and deductibles will vary.

If you choose to use out-of-network insurance, you will submit the invoice to your insurance company in order to be reimbursed a portion of the session fee. The amount you receive is different for each  provider and individual plan. If you want to know what amount  you can expect to be reimbursed, contact the customer service for your provider. All policies, rates, and deductibles will vary.

 

Self-pay is also accepted.

fees & payments

The fee for a session (50 minutes) is $150, and is due at the time of service.  If affordability is a concern, let’s talk about that. Please reach out to me to discuss our options.
