You can reach me at 208.557.8603. My office is located on 6th Avenue next to Idaho State University in the University Historic District of Pocatello.
I am an out-of-network provider for those who choose to use their insurance plans. I also welcome cash (private pay) clients.
If you plan to use out-of-network insurance, know that payment of session fees is due at the time services are rendered. You then bill your insurance for reimbursement. Please contact your insurance carrier to verify your insurance benefits. There is usually an 800 number on the back of your insurance card that you can call to:
- Verify that out-of-network services are covered by your insurance and, if so, what out-of-network coverage is available for mental health
- Understand what your deductible is for out-of-network services and how much of your deductible has been met so far in the current year
- Understand what your copay will be once your deductible has been met
Session fees are prorated based on the length of service you desire. Particularly in resolving traumatic memory using EMDR I find it important to work efficiently yet not feel rushed. We would decide in advance the length of session you prefer.
The local standard for session length is 50 minutes. My fee for a 50 minute session is $85.
A 60 minute session costs $100.
The first session is the intake session and lasts 75 minutes. The intake session costs $150.
For EMDR sessions (where longer sessions may be advisable), a 75 minute session is $125; a 90 minute session is $150.
An initial phone consultation is available at no charge.
If you have a high deductible health insurance plan and are currently paying out-of-pocket, my fee structure may make it advantageous for you to receive my services outside your insurance plan. Am happy to discuss this matter in more detail.
