In addition to working with clients struggling with challenges related to body image, I also offer help for adults experiencing a wide range of concerns including the following:
Grief & Loss
Infertility & Pregnancy Loss
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Caregivers for Patients with an Alzheimer's or Dementia Diagnosis
Rates and Insurance
At this time, I am a provider with Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia, United Healthcare/Optum, and Aetna.
If you are using a different insurance company, check with your insurance company to find out if they will consider me as an out-of-network provider and reimburse you for payment of my services. If this is the case, I will provide you with a receipt after each session that you may submit to your insurance company.
Note: For clients that will be filing their counseling sessions through their secondary insurance, my office policy is to request the full contracted rate of the secondary insurance carrier due upfront at the time of each session. Once the claim has been processed through secondary insurance, the client will be billed for the remainder of the balance, or alternatively, I will issue the client a prompt refund, if a refund is due. I have instated this policy in response to the lengthy time (5+ months) it takes for secondary insurance to reimburse my office for services provided.
Using your EAP benefits? Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services require a prior authorization. If you decide to use your EAP benefits provided by your employer to pay for services, the first step is to contact your EAP company. I am currently a provider with the EAP company, ESPYR.
ESPYR - 1-800-869-0276 (for clients employed by Georgia Southwestern State University & South Georgia Technical College). Please ask the EAP Representative to call me or email me with the written authorization. They have my contact information. Also inquire how many sessions you are authorized to receive. This is helpful to the treatment planning process.
Private Pay Rate: If you are not planning to file with insurance, my private pay rate is $95 for the initial session and $75 per follow-up session.
