Aligned Self, LLC does not currently accept any insurance.

We are an out-of-network provider, which means that we do not directly participate with any insurance plans; however, many people have out-of-network benefits and can be reimbursed for psychotherapy services by as much as 40-70%, depending on the plan.

If you are seeking insurance reimbursement, we can provide superbills for you to submit to your insurance provider. Please check your coverage carefully to see if you receive out-of-network benefits.

Please note that where out-of-network benefits are covered, you will be responsible for payment at the time of service and your insurance will reimburse your expenses.

Individual Therapy – $200 per session

Paying out-of-pocket allows for more freedom, privacy, and independence. Insurance companies mandate a diagnosis, oversee your health records, and may seek access to your information while in therapy. In addition to meeting a deductible, there may also be limits to the number of sessions covered per year regardless of your level of care. You may be limited to in-network providers which can narrow your chances of finding the right fit for you. When considering the implications of using insurance, paying out-of-pocket is a better fit for some. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

Clients are responsible for full payment of our agreed upon fee-for-service at the beginning of each session via Credit Card or The Loveland Foundation Vouchers.

All clients have a right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” per federal law as of January 1, 2022. A “Good Faith Estimate” enumerates the expenses you can reasonably expect to pay for your mental health care services provided by me and my counseling practice.
