How is payment processed?
ShrinkWrapt Las Vegas accepts cash, check, and credit card payments.
Do you accept insurance?
No. I am not an in-network provider with any insurance company. However, I have been approved as an "out of network" credentialed provider for all Tricare programs, except for Prime.
If you have Tricare, you pay my fee at your session, then apply to Tricare for reimbursement. I can help you with the form and provide you a superbill, it's a simple process.
For all other insurances, your plan or health saving account (HSA) may allow you to submit a 'superbill,' in which you request reimbursement of your payment to me. Once you investigate this option with your insurance, please let me know how I may assist you.
Please note, I am unable to see anyone who has Medicare or Medicaid, even with self-pay.
How much do your professional services cost?
Fees are dependent upon the type of service offered. I keep my rates reasonable and affordable and I offer discounted therapy rates for certain individuals (see next question, 'Do you offer discounted rates?').
For therapy, current rates are as follows. Please see "discounted rates" section below if you are an educator, a college or graduate student, first responder (police, fire, EMT), or military/veteran. For therapy sessions, you get the whole 60-minute hour, not 50 minutes!
Individual intake evaluation-90 mins
Individual therapy-30 mins
Individual therapy-60 mins

Late cancel/no show
Returned check fees
PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENTS RATES:
The cost of psychological assessments (e.g., personality or IQ testing) is calculated based on the reason for assessment, as well as time it will take for records review, clinical interview (evaluation) and/or testing, any necessary test interpretation, and report writing. The total cost of an evaluation or assessment will be calculated and shared with you for your knowledge and approval prior to any evaluation being scheduled.
VETERAN INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EVALUATIONS FOR COMPENSATION AND PENSION RATES:
I charge $300 to complete mental disorder DBQs, $350 to complete PTSD DBQs, and $150/hour for records reviews. I keep my rates very reasonable and transparent in this way and offer detailed invoices. See my 'services' page for additional information on veteran IMEs.
OTHER SERVICES RATES:
Other services include report writing, telephone conversations, consulting with other professionals with your permission, preparation of records or treatment summaries, and the time spent performing any other professional service you may request of me. If these types of services are needed, I will speak with you about the associated charges.
If you become involved in legal proceedings that require my participation, you will be expected to pay for all of my professional time, including preparation and transportation costs, even if I am called to testify by another party. Because of the complexities of legal involvement, my professional fees for participation in legal proceedings are different and can be discussed if the need arises.
Do you offer any discounted rates?
Yes. I offer a 10% discount off my therapy rates to individuals in the following fields: K-12 public and private education, college and graduate students, military/veterans, and first responders (police, fire, EMT). I reserve several therapy time slots per week for these individuals. (Please note, this discount does not include assessments/testing, veteran IMEs, or any other services; discount applies only to therapy rates).
Additionally, for all clients, I occasionally have pre and post-doctoral psychology students working in my office under supervision, and their rates are lower across the board. If you are interested in working with a student, please inquire. (Please note as of 2018, I do not have any students working in the office, but this option may become available again later in the year.)
When is payment due?
Payment is expected at the conclusion of each therapeutic session.
Payment schedules for other professional services will be determined prior to any work being started.
