  • To ensure privacy, most people don't use insurance since it requires a mental health diagnosis and insurers may seek personal details about your problem. Such information may become part of your permanent medical record and can affect future employment, disability insurance, custody/divorce proceedings, or security clearance. 
  • Furthermore, children and adults who receive a mental health diagnosis may be denied from certain educational programs or denied future participation in law enforcement or military service.
  • Paying for the session yourself allows for quality counseling services and offers confidentiality without intrusive managed care requirements

For Discernment and Standard Sessions, we subscribe to a strict 72 hour Cancellation Policy. If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 72 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. This is due to a number of factors, most noteably being that the custom nature of our services and the unliklihood of being able to reschedule that custom service in the same time slot.
