FAQ

Insurance

If requested, clients will receive a statement containing the necessary information to submit for out-of-network reimbursement (a superbill). If you plan on seeking reimbursement from your insurance company, I recommend asking the following questions:

  • Do I have insurance benefits for out-of-network mental health services from a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist?
  • Is there an out-of-network deductible that must be met?
  • How many sessions per year are covered?
  • Is a referral required from my primary care physician?
Telehealth

I offer telehealth sessions on a HIPAA-compliant video conferencing system.

Confidentiality

All information disclosed in therapy sessions, including the therapist's written notes and records, is confidential except under particular circumstances where disclosure is required by law. Some cases where the law requires disclosure include:

Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse: The therapist is required by law to report such occurrences to the appropriate authorities immediately.

If a client threatens severe imminent bodily harm to another person or persons, the therapist must notify the police and inform the intended victim. In addition, it may be necessary for the therapist to inform authorities to obtain an evaluation for emergency hospitalization for the client.

If a client intends to harm himself/herself or is gravely disabled: Psychotherapists will make every effort to enlist the client's cooperation in ensuring safety. Further measures may be taken without their permission to ensure their safety. These measures can include notifying authorities to obtain an evaluation for emergency hospitalization for the client. When appropriate and for the client's benefit, written permission for the release of information may be given by the parent to allow consultation with third parties.
