To reach me quickly, email melissa@melissalesterolson.com and include your phone number.  You are welcome to leave me a voice mail, but this will delay my response time significantly.

FEES & BILLING

Planning for the required financial investment in therapy and counseling is an important part of the therapy process.  Payment can be made with FSA, HSA, debit card, or credit card.  For accounting reasons, I am unable to accept cash or checks.

1 hour Online or In-Office Therapy $240
1.5 hour Online or In-Office Therapy $360
2 hour Online or In-Office Therapy $480
   
3 hour Trauma Resolution Intensive  $720


All online and in-person therapy charges are run through SQUARE.  I am listed as “MLO” on your statement for your own privacy and protection.  You will NOT receive a receipt, as receipts run through SQUARE are not HIPAA compliant.  If you have set your card account to notify you (or anyone else) of a transaction on your card, you will receive those alerts per your own settings.  Please let me know if you have any questions at all.

INSURANCE

I am not contracted with any insurance panels.  Please contact your insurance company and ask how much they will reimburse you for a 90837 60-minute Telehealth or In-office therapy session in the Metro Atlanta area.

SIMPLER SUPERBILL PROCEDURE

  1. Email me at melissa@melissalesterolson.com with SUPERBILL REQUEST in the subject line.
  2. Include your full name, date of birth, dates and minutes of each session (60, 90, 120, 180) and the amount you paid for each session.
  3. I will send you a Superbill, along with an apology that it took longer than it should have.

2-DAY CANCELLATION POLICY

Please notify me at least 48 hours in advance of a cancelled or missed appointment to avoid being charged in full for my time.  Email your cancellation to melissa@melissalesterolson.com.  Cancellations are not accepted by text or voice mail.  Thank you for your understanding.
