Can I see you if you do not take my insurance?
Many insurance companies do offer out-of-network benefits for mental health. This means your insurance may pay a portion of your bill even if I am not in your network. Please contact your insurance claims department to find out if this is an option. If so, you would pay for each session and I would provide you a super bill which you can then submit to your insurance to get reimbursed.
If you do not have out-of-network benefits, you can pay cash for sessions, or you can also use your Health Savings Account (HSA) or Family Savings Account (FSA) to pay for sessions.
I already have a therapist, can I see you too?
Generally, it is not appropriate to see two therapists at the same time unless they are working on vastly different issues. For example, a student may have a therapist in school to support problems with school, but then they might also have a therapist outside of school to provide therapy for social/emotional concerns in life.
If someone already has a therapist, I always suggest talking to that therapist about their treatment plan, progress, and what they still want to work on. It is then the client’s decision to determine whether that therapist is still a good fit, or they need support of another therapist with a different specialty.
