Frequently Ask Questions
Here are some frequently asked questions from clients. If you don't see an answer to your question, please contact me and I will be happy to help.
How much does it cost?
I charge $140 for a 50-minute session and $200 for a 75-minute session.
Do you take insurance?
I use Alma for my insurance billing agency. The insurance is under the umbrella of Optum/Optum EAP, Aetna, and Cigna. (Allied Benefit Systems, AllSavers UHC, Bind, Harvard Pilgrim, Health Plans Inc, Meritain, Nippon, Oscar, Oxford Health Plans, UHC Student Resources, UMR, United Healthcare Shared Services, United Healthcare, United Healthcare Global)
I am considered out of network under certain insurance plans. I am happy to provide you with a superbill/receipt so that you can request reimbursement (or partial reimbursement) from your insurance company. Not all insurance companies provide reimbursement, so make sure to call your provider first to see if this is an option.
What are the accepted forms of payment?
You can pay with a credit card/debit cards and HSA/FSA accounts. A card is kept on file in a secure location through a program called Simple Practice. This is also the place all records will be stored, it is HIPPA compliant.
What are your hours?
I am available from 8am- 5pm Monday through Thursday and 8am-12pm on Friday.
I also offer evening appointments by request.
Why only serving Minnesota and South Dakota?
As a professional, I can only see clients within the states that I am licensed, which means I am well aware of the laws, ethics and resources for these states.
Minnesota license #4177
South Dakota license #11535
What is a free consult?
It's a free 15 minute online session or phone call where you get to meet me. For online sessions, a link will be sent to your email. It can feel uneasy trying to figure out who to do therapy with, I want this to be the best experience for you.
How does online therapy work?
I will need an email address to send paperwork, which is the informed consent, demographics, payment as well as an intake questionnaire for you to fill out online. When our sessions are scheduled you will receive a reminder at least 24 hours before our session starts. Then at the start time of our session, you will be able to click on the link to begin. Easy peasy!
Why 605 Therapy?
I want you to know where I am physically at (area code) and that I am not just a person behind a computer. I have lived in the Twin Cities, Mankato and now currently near Sioux Falls, SD.
Also, a bible verse that resonates in therapy is Proverbs 6:5 "Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler"
