ABOUT INSURANCE
Many of my clients choose not to involve their insurance because they want to maintain privacy and/or don't want psychotherapy treatment listed on their medical records.  However, I'm happy to give a billing summary to you at the end of each month for you to submit to your insurance company on your own. In these cases, most of my clients are able to get partial or full reimbursement for my services. If you decide to go the insurance route, you may want to check in advance with your plan. Payment is due at the beginning of each session, and you may pay with cash, check, or credit card. If you are able to pay for several sessions in advance, I can give you a somewhat discounted fee. 

What About Confidentiality?
From the California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists:

The only way to assure that your plan does not have access to confidential communications between you and your therapist is to personally pay for the treatment, without the participation of the plan. Whenever a third party (insurer) pays for the care, they have a right to information which supports the need for treatment.

Your health plan may, with or without your authorization, obtain information from your therapist about your treatment to determine if, in their opinion, it is medically and clinically necessary. The amount of information to be disclosed varies from plan to plan; however, the therapist will generally supply the amount of information the plan requests in order to assure that they do not deny the claim because of a lack of information.

Otherwise, communications between the patient and therapist are generally confidential and are not discussed with anyone outside the therapeutic relationship.
