Fees & Insurance

Counseling

This office accepts private pay and/or medical insurance for therapy services. Therapy sessions are typically 30, 45 or 55 minute sessions depending on your insurance carrier. Damiana does not charge clients for the time she spends submitting paperwork requesting additional sessions and/or negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf.

Private Pay for Counseling

Many people do not want to use their insurance coverage as a payment method, because they want their personal health information to be totally private. Often, insurance companies request diagnoses, therapy interventions, goals and/or substance abuse information as a prerequisite to accessing your mental health benefits or to extend sessions beyond a specific number of sessions.
The decision to disclose medical information to your insurance company is up to you as an informed consumer.  For this reason, Damiana accepts both insurance and/or private pay as methods of payment for therapy.  If you choose to pay privately, Damiana will discuss the rates on an individual basis.  For either form of payment, your health records are protected by Full Circle Counseling & Consulting LLC to the fullest extent that the law allows.
