Coaching is typically focused on short-term goals that are achieved over a given period of time. Results are best found when the client commits to a pre-determined number of sessions. When creating new habits and working towards new goals, results are often achieved when consistent accountability and support is in place. Your coach helps you to tackle the mindset preventing you from achieving the success you desire. Creating change in the brain takes more than a single session. Work to achieve your desired outcome not only happens during sessions, but also in-between. Single sessions are available for quick clarity starting at $99 per hour.
Session packages are available in 3, 6, and 12 month packages and begin at $597. Please contact us for more information about the best package for your needs.

1). Reduced Ability to Choose: Most health care plans today (insurance, PPO, HMO, etc.) offer little coverage and/or reimbursement for mental health services. Most HMOs and PPOs require “preauthorization” before you can receive services. This means you must call the company and justify why you are seeking therapeutic services in order for you to receive reimbursement. The insurance representative, who may or may not be a mental health professional, will decide whether services will be allowed. If authorization is given, you are often restricted to seeing the providers on the insurance company’s list. Reimbursement is reduced if you choose someone who is not on the contracted list; consequently, your choice of providers is often significantly restricted.
2.) Pre-Authorization and Reduced Confidentiality: Insurance typically authorizes several therapy sessions at a time. When these sessions are finished, your therapist must justify the need for continued services. Sometimes additional sessions are not authorized, leading to an end of the therapeutic relationship even if therapeutic goals are not completely met. Your insurance company may require additional clinical information that is confidential in order to approve or justify a continuation of services. Confidentiality cannot be assured or guaranteed when an insurance company requires information to approve continued services. Even if the therapist justifies the need for ongoing services, your insurance company may decline services. Your insurance company dictates if treatment will or will not be covered. Note: Personal information might be added to national medical information data banks regarding treatment.
3.) Negative Impacts of a Psychiatric Diagnosis: Insurance companies require clinicians to give a mental health diagnosis (i.e., “major depression” or “obsessive-compulsive disorder”) for reimbursement. Psychiatric diagnoses may negatively impact you in the following ways:Denial of insurance when applying for disability or life insurance; Company (mis)control of information when claims are processed; Loss of confidentiality due to the increased number of persons handling claims; Loss of employment and/or repercussions of a diagnosis in situations where you may be required to reveal a mental health disorder diagnosis on your record. This includes but is not limited to: applying for a job, financial aid, and/or concealed weapons permits. A psychiatric diagnosis can be brought into a court case (ie: divorce court, family law, criminal, etc.).
4.) It is also important to note that some psychiatric diagnoses are not eligible for reimbursement. This is often true for marriage/couples therapy.
5.) Enhanced quality of care and other advantages: You are in control of your care, including choosing your therapist, length of treatment, etc.Increased privacy and confidentiality (except for limits of confidentiality). Not having a mental health disorder diagnosis on your medical record. Consulting with me on non-psychiatric issues that are important to you that aren’t billable by insurance, such as learning how to cope with life changes, gaining more effective communication techniques for your relationships, increasing personal insight, and developing healthy new skills.
