*Please review the “Reasons to Pay Privately” section below. Unfortunately insurance companies will not recognize and reimburse for services provided by LPC-Interns.

Last minute notice, or no notice, prevents the practice from making your appointment slot available to other individuals. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Reasons to Pay Privately
Private paying clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by a diagnosis, treatment plan or session limits that health insurance companies mandate. Often, insurance companies limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy they will cover.
In order to obtain reimbursement from your insurance company, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This becomes a part of your permanent health care record and the insurance company can review all of your records at their discretion.
By paying privately or out of pocket, we can assure private pay clients the highest degree of privacy, flexibility and control of their mental health and records that is allowed by Texas state law. We will work collaboratively to decide how often you would like to attend therapy and you decide what you want to focus on. You have the control over your mental health care.
