Benefits of Private Pay

Private paying clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan, or session limits that health insurance companies dictate. Insurance companies often limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy. Many insurance companies do not cover couples/relational or family therapy.

By paying privately, or out of pocket, I can assure private pay clients of the
highest degree of privacy, flexibility, and control of their mental health record
allowed by Minnesota state law, since my records are exempt from insurance
reporting and random compliance audits. Our work is off-record. 


I bill South Country Health Alliance directly.  I do not bill any other insurance companies directly. Your counseling services may be eligible for reimbursement through out-of-network benefits, medical spending, or health care savings accounts. Health insurance plans and benefits vary. Check with your provider about reimbursement for your counseling services.
