Rob is often covered on an out-of-network basis by other insurance companies. In most cases where Rob provides services on an out-of-network basis, the client is expected paid the full fee out-of-pocket and then file separately for reimbursement. Be advised that many insurance companies require you to satisfy a deductible when receiving services from providers who are out-of-network. Rob will help you with the paperwork when filing on an out-of-network basis. Please contact your insurance provider prior to your visit to find out exactly what your co-pay is and if Healing Grace is an in or out of network provider.
What are Healing Grace’s out-of-pocket counseling rates?
$140.00 for first session or subsequent extended sessions. $125.00 for regular 50 minute session.
Does Healing Grace accept payments by credit cards, check cards or cards associated with a flexible spending account?
Payments are by cash, Venmo, Zelle or personal check only. However, in cases where clients are using flexible spending accounts, Rob will help you do the necessary paperwork in order for you to receive reimbursement from your employer.
How much are parents involved when the client is a child or adolescent?
Although this varies from client to client, Rob prefers for the parents to be involved in the treatment of the minor. Rob generally refers younger children to clinicians who are specifically trained in the treatment of children. The older the child, the more he or she is treated individually. This issue involves a clinical judgment on the part of the clinician. If the main problem is assessed to be issues within the family, then family therapy is employed as the main treatment modality. Conversely, the assessment may reveal that the young person needs to have a safe place to talk confidentially with someone regarding particular issues. If this is the case, Rob will provide general feedback to the parents regarding progress and how they can offer support to their child. Under very few, if any circumstances, would Rob ever treat a child or adolescent without providing the parents any feedback or involving them in any way.
What do I do if I need marriage counseling, but my spouse will not come in?
The short answer is—come in by yourself. The reason for this is that there are many occasions where one spouse can change and make significant improvements. In turn, this often provides motivation for the other spouse to come in.
