Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between coaching and therapy?

Life coaching  is more future focused and supports people who have specific goals around personal development and self-improvement.

Most coaching clients might need support around their mental health wellness practices or simply want to make a big change in their lives and want the support of a coach to help them stay accountable.

Therapists focus on the past, present, and future. Therapists also diagnose mental health conditions.

While a therapist may work with clients to set goals and make changes, primarily clients come to them seeking support for mental health conditions, trauma and PTSD, abuse, treating addiction, life transitions, emotinal support, relationship issues, or a mental health diagnosis.

Do you accept insurance?

I don’t accept insurance but can provide a superbill to submit to your insurance. I cannot guarantee reimbursement for private pay clients. 

There are many benefits of self-pay. When using insurance benefits, they are able to track, view, and discuss any progress notes/diagnoses, and/or influence your length of treatment. Insurance companies also require medical diagnoses which can become a part of your permanent medical record.

Self-pay allows for an extra layer of privacy without having to worry about your insurance company’s involvement in treatment.

You will need to call your insurance to see if they accept superbills. Here are some questions to ask about your coverage:

  • What are my mental health therapy benefits? 

  • What is my out of network percentage of coverage?

  • Do I have a deductible, and if so, how much is it? 

  • How much of deductible has been met? 

  • Do I need a written referral from a doctor? 

  • Does the referral need to come from my primary care doctor?

  • Do I need authorization on file prior to starting therapy, and if so, is authorization on file already?

  • Is there a special form I need to be reimbursed, and if so, where is the form and to what mailing address should the form be sent?
