“I have been seeing Dr. Carlin for almost eight years now. As her client I truly can’t rave about her enough! She is an astounding therapist, and one that is not only professional (and highly qualified) but she is also very compassionate. She creates a safe space that allows you to open up and discuss things at your own pace and comfort level. As I’ve seen her for going on a decade now she hasn’t only been understanding and flexible with my schedule (I work full time and I am a mom) but she has always been accommodating to my frequency of visits as well. She is always supportive of whatever frequency I choose to schedule myself for. In my opinion, for me to see just one therapist for almost a decade is an indication that she continues to grow with you as your therapist, while you heal from whatever it is that you are reaching out to her for. I have recommended her to several of my closest family and friends! If you are struggling with anything, please don’t hesitate to make an appointment with her!” –Victoria G.
HOW TO USE OUT OF NETWORK INSURANCE
To help with the cost of therapy you may want to know your benefits before beginning therapy. This will help you determine how much of the cost you will incur yourself. Ask your insurance company the following questions:
- Do you have mental health benefits (sometimes also called “behavioral health” benefits)?
- How much is your deductible (the amount of money you have to pay before your insurance company will start to reimburse you for out network providers? Have you already paid any of this deductible?
- Do you need any kind of special referral (i.e., from a primary care doctor or your University Counseling Center) before you can be reimbursed?
- How much of each therapy session will your insurance provider reimburse (this is typically a percentage)?
- Are there any limitations to services (i.e., only a certain amount of money allowed for mental health reimbursements, a limited number of sessions, reimbursement only for certain types of diagnoses, etc.)?
