Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service 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 both orally and in writing 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.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.
You can 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 picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 368-1019

There are many benefits to paying out of pocket for therapy services. Fee-for-Service therapists provide the highest level of confidentiality when it comes to your therapy. We are not required to provide a diagnosis nor any information to insurance companies. I have worked with clients that have been denied life insurance because they have been given a DSM-5 (Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) diagnosis at some point in their lives. I believe your treatment plan and length of therapy should be determined by us in a collaborative manner so you get the care you need.
The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist and information cannot be disclosed without written permission. Exceptions include:
Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety.
If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law ensuring their safety.
