Frequently Asked Questions
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
I am considered an "in-network" provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield. I am also an authorized "non-network provider" for TRICARE, meaning that I will accept this insurance plan on a case-by-case basis.
I am considered an "out-of-network" provider for all other insurance plans. If not covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield or TRICARE, families can pay for services using cash, check, or credit/debit card (including HSA cards). Please contact your insurance provider to discuss out-of-network benefits and reimbursement you may be eligible for based on your specific plan. If you are eligible for receiving reimbursement from your insurance provider, I will provide a statement that contains all of the information they require.
WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
An initial intake evaluation is $250. A standard 50-min therapy session is $185/session. Comprehensive diagnostic evaluations are billed at a rate of $250/hour.
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
Please contact me to discuss the possibility of a sliding scale fee. Clients will be asked to submit proof of income to determine eligibility for a sliding scale fee.
If you are seeking services on a sliding scale, the KU Child and Family Services Clinic offers evidence-based assessment and therapy services provided by doctoral students in clinical child psychology who work under the supervision of a licensed psychologist. Visit www.kuclinic.ku.edu to learn more about their services.
DO YOU OFFER WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS?
Yes! I ONLY offer appointments on Saturdays. This tends to work well for families with busy schedules and ensures that our appointments do not conflict with school or extracurricular activities during the week.
WHAT IS EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE?
Evidence-based practice is defined as, "the integration of the best available research with clinical expertise in the context of patient characteristics, culture and preferences" by the American Psychological Association. I remain up-to-date on the latest scientific information and practice guidelines and I combine this with my clinical expertise when making recommendations and developing treatment plans with families. Our treatment plan will represent the integration of my recommendations with your family's values and preferences. As part of an evidence-based approach, we will have clear treatment goals, monitor progress regularly, and assume that our work together will be time-limited (only until your family's goals are achieved).
