Affordable Psychotherapy 

It is my intention to offer affordable psychotherapy since there are a significant amount of people experiencing financial difficulties at this time. Unfortunately, this prohibits them from seeking an experienced therapist for a substantial quantity of time in a comprehensive manner.

.

Insurance companies are an additional cause for concern because many  put constraints on the psychotherapy treatment requiring medical necessity and limiting the amount of sessions based on medical necessity. It takes times, and focus to assist people in  learning about themselves. The goal of becoming more aware of authentic selves and remove blocks to achieving  goals that can lead to a much richer quality of life. For those who would like to use their insurance below will give you a list of Companies;

Mental health care provides support and treatment to optimize a person’s emotional and psychological well-being. Treatment for severe mental illness like major depression or panic disorders must be covered by your health plan under the same terms and conditions applied in treating other medical conditions.

The Mental Health Parity Law (MHPAEA) ensures the same medical care coverage for the following mental health conditions:

Major depression

Bipolar (manic-depressive) disorder

Panic disorder

Anorexia

Bulimia

Obsessive-compulsive disorder

Autism or Pervasive Developmental Disorder

Schizophrenia

Schizoaffective disorder
