Here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about rates & insurance! Need more information, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Do you accept insurance?

In order to provide the highest quality of care, we do not accept insurance at this time. Clients seeking reimbursement for therapy can be provided with a superbill (verification of services received) to submit to their insurance providers.

Something important to note: a diagnosis is required by an insurance company to render services medically necessary. If you are wanting to submit a superbill to your insurance company, we can address this during our session time.

What is your cancellation policy?

We require 24-hour notice for cancellation prior to the scheduled session time. Cancellations can be made either by phone or by email. A late cancellation (less than 24-hour notice) or no-show will be charged a full session fee.

What are your rates per session?

Session Rates per Clinician:

Lindsay McCarthy, Ph.D. Candidate, LMFT
Rate: $180/session

Kirsti Reese, MA, LPC, LCDC, PMH-C, RPT
Rate: $180/session

Sarah Lonsdale Bledsoe, MSW, LCSW-S
Rate: $150/session

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept HSA and FSA cards, cash, check and all major credit cards for payment. Payment information must be on file before first appointment. We require a credit card on file for all clients and the card provided will be charged after the session.

Do you offer reduced rates?

We believe that quality mental health care should be accessible to all. Therefore reduced fee services are available on a limited basis. Each clinician offers a limited number of reduced fee sessions. It will be up to each clinician to let you know if they have reduced rate openings.

Please be mindful that if you ask for a reduced fee when you can afford the full fee, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scales practices grows strong and sustainable communities. Additionally, when therapists are paid fairly, they are able to invest more time and resources in training and materials to serve you better.

What is a Good Faith Estimate (GFE)?

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, also called the "No Surprises Act", health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate, for the total expected cost of psychotherapy services. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

While this important requirement is primarily geared towards protecting patients from surprise out-of-network fees with hospitals, doctors, and testing, transparency is important to us and we do not ever want there to be surprises related to costs of service. Many clients will chose their own frequency of meeting and duration of treatment, so these numbers can be very variable. For most clients, an estimate of costs can be found using the equation:

Total Cost Estimate Yearly = (Cost per session)x(frequency of session per month x number of months in treatment)

For example: If you see your clinician for $150/session once a week for a year (not including holidays, time off, ect.) then your estimate would be 150x(4x12) = $7200 a year.
