“Be a bush if you can't be a tree. If you can't be a highway, just be a trail. If you can't be a sun, be a star. For it isn't by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.” - MLK Jr.
Fees and Insurance
Fee: $175 for 50 minute session.
$260 for 80 minute session.
I have elected not to accept insurance. I want all my clients to have treatment that is specifically tailored to their needs. Insurance companies require a diagnosis, can dictate length of service and generally create treatment and administrative hurdles.
Credit Card Processing with Ivy Pay
Ivy Pay is a credit, debit, HSA and FSA card processing service. Their website is: https://www.talktoivy.com/ivypay
(Therapist's: if you choose to try Ivy Pay for your practice needs please consider using code sarg701 for your first $1000 free of fees.)
How it works :
You provide a phone number, which I enter into an app along with a charge for the session fee
Ivy Pay texts you a secure link leading to a page where you enter your credit card information and approve the first charge
After future sessions, I use Ivy Pay to charge the stored card; the app sends you a text informing you that I’ve done so
You will only be asked to enter your credit card information once (unless you need or wish to change the card), and you do not need to download an app or regularly interact with Ivy Pay.
The service is secure and compliant with HIPAA standards for client confidentiality
Your credit card information is stored with Ivy Pay, not in my files or other records; I do not have access to your stored credit card information.
You must provide at least 24 hours notice if you will be unable to attend your appointment or you will be billed your full session fee.

Good Faith Estimate
Standard Notice and Consent Documents Under the No Surprises Act
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
• Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-877-696-6775.
