Billing for Marriage/Couples Counseling
We accept self-pay and Insurance plans (accept Insurance for MD Residents) for individual and family therapy at this time. We do not accept insurance for Couples Therapy unless there is a distinct identified patient
Insurance companies require that, through the course of treatment, we are treating one family member’s mental health diagnosis. A mental health diagnosis is required for us to bill the insurance company. When working with relationship concerns, we are treating the relationship and can only write notes reflecting that approach. We cannot say we are treating one member’s mental health when the concern is relational. There are rare exceptions where the focus is specifically one member of the couple’s mental health needs and couple’s therapy is an adjunct to that person’s individual therapy.
We can provide the forms necessary for Out-of-Network reimbursement if your insurance plan has this benefit. In addition, most HSA’s can be used to cover costs.

Confidentiality In Treatment
The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission. Exceptions include: Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which we are required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately. If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, we must notify the police and inform the intended victim. If a client intends to harm himself or herself, we will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, we will take further measures without their permission that are provided to us by law in order to ensure their safety.
