ONLINE THERAPY AND ONLINE COUNSELING

All Client Information – updated 3/17/2020

Due to public health concerns, I am currently offering online therapy and online counseling until further notice.  Online therapy is conducted via Doxy.me (HIPAA compliant).  You will receive a link to our online session in the morning the day of our appointment, along with new Informed Consent paperwork to review and sign.  Thank you for your understanding.

TO LINK TO YOUR ONLINE THERAPY SESSION

Please read this page carefully – to understand scheduling, payments, reimbursement, and cancellations – before scheduling your first online therapy and counseling appointment.

All first-time therapy and counseling appointments are pre-paid (190.00) at the time of scheduling.  This allows me to hold your initial appointment for you.  Please review my cancellation policy below.

In order to reach me quickly, please email me at melissa@melissalesterolson.com and include your phone number.  An email will enable me to connect with you more quickly than if you leave a voice mail.  You are welcome to leave me a voice mail, but this will delay my response time significantly.

Please complete all forms in the blue box to the right (for both online therapy and in-office therapy) and email them or bring them with you to your first therapy and counseling appointment.

ONLINE THERAPY AND COUNSELING PAYMENT & FEES

Planning for your financial investment in therapy and counseling is an important part of the process.  Please note that I do not accept insurance.  For online therapy and online counseling as well as in-office visits you are welcome to make your payment with an FSA card, an HSA card, a debit card, or any credit card.  For accounting reasons, I am unable to accept cash or checks.

1 hour Online or In-Office Therapy $190
1.5 hour Online or In-Office Therapy $285
2 hour Online or In-Office Therapy $380
   
3 hour Trauma Resolution Intensive  $570

Trauma Resolution Intensives are ideal for women who want an individualized “workshop” to make significant progress immediately.  Intensives are preceded by an Initial 1 hour Consultation appointment.

INSURANCE REIMBURSEMENT

Your insurer should accept Superbill claims for online therapy and online counseling charges for reimbursement during the current health crisis.

For online therapy and online counseling:  Upon request, I can provide an electronic Superbill sent to you via email.  You may then submit this Superbill directly to your insurer for reimbursement.  Please send me an email requesting a Superbill.

For in-office therapy:  I provide a Therapy and Counseling Superbill posted on my Appointments Page that you may print and bring to your appointment anytime.  Please fill in all appointment dates prior to bringing it in for my signature.

~ Print out the Superbill in the blue box on this page.
~ Fill in your appointment dates and bring it to our next appointment.
~ I will complete it, sign it and give it right back to you for submission to your insurer.
~ You may do this as often as you like.

2-DAY CANCELLATION POLICY

To avoid paying in full for your cancelled or missed appointment (online therapy and online counseling or in-office), please notify me at least 48 hours prior.  Cancellations are accepted by email at melissa@melissalesterolson.com.  Cancellations are not accepted by text or voice mail.  Thank you for your understanding.
