ONLINE THERAPY and ONLINE COUNSELING FEES

Planning for the required financial investment in therapy and counseling is an important part of the 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


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

I am not contracted with any insurance panels.  However, if your policy offers out-of-network mental health benefits, you may submit a Superbill (procedure below) to your insurance company and request that they reimburse you directly.

NEW SUPERBILL PROCEDURE

  1. Download the PDF Superbill, select Export PDF and Convert to Microsoft Word.
  2. Select Save as and choose the location you will save to.
  3. I recommend you name documents by Item, Month, Year – Superbill MLO July 2020.
  4. Open the downloaded, converted form and complete the red sections.
  5. Email the Superbill Word Document to melissa@melissalesterolson.com.
  6. I will complete the form and email it back to you.
  7. Superbill requests are returned each Monday.

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.
