Yes, we only offer online (telehealth) therapy sessions. This is done through a private, safe, and secure online platform, which is HIPAA-compliant. In addition, therapists ensure they are in a private and confidential location to provide you with privacy. Therapists cannot guarantee confidentiality from your location and it will be up to you to ensure you are in a private location.
Exceptions to confidentiality:
Online (telehealth) therapy is shown to be as effective as face-to-face counseling sessions. Here are a few other benefits:
How long you continue in therapy depends on a lot of different factors.
We generally like to start with weekly sessions to give you time to become comfortable with the therapist and begin processing through your issues. The frequency of sessions are often reduced to biweekly, then monthly once you begin seeing progress.
No, we do not accept insurance.
However, you may still be able to use out of network benefits to get reimbursed for any out-of-pocket costs.
NOTE: Using out of network benefits may require a diagnosis by your insurance company.
With this option: You pay the therapist for the scheduled session, and monthly we provide you with a receipt called a superbill, which you can then submit to your insurance company. If you have mental health benefits and do not have a deductible, the insurance company will send a check to you directly for reimbursement once the claim is accepted. Please be aware that we do not have any control over your insurance company, whether they accept or decline your claim, nor the reimbursement amount.
Another payment option: Use a Health Saving Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA), which allows you to use pre-taxed money.
Please be aware that a credit card is required to be on file to schedule a session and payment is due at the time of service.
The simple answer is that we just decided not to accept insurance. We want to spend more time with our clients to help them, than spend time talking with insurance companies.
Many clients find that with a deductible, they need to pay close to, if not more than, the amount we charge per session. Not accepting insurance also allows those with or without insurance to have more choice in the therapist they want to see without being restricted by who is covered by their insurance company.
There are several other reasons for not accepting insurance, such as:
What questions should I ask my insurance company about my mental health benefits?
Yes, we do currently have a reduced fee option through Open Path Collective. We only accept up to five (5) Open Path clients at a time. This option is available to those who have signed up with Open Path and are unable to afford current market rates for therapy sessions or for those who do not have insurance which allows for you to submit a superbill for reimbursement of therapy services.
How it works:
We at A Mindful Walk Counseling allow you to choose your own payment based on what you can afford between $45 and $65 per session. You will be asked to choose a payment option during the free consultation. We ask that you inform the therapist if your situation changes and can pay the full counseling session fee, either due to higher income/budget availability or if you obtain insurance which will reimburse you for some or all of the costs. This opens up a spot for someone else with us through Open Path who would otherwise not have that available to them.
