Starting therapy or coaching services can feel intimidating. People often don't know what to expect but don't want to feel stuck or the way they are feeling anymore. I hope at the first session, you feel you are heard and that you have hope in moving towards a healthier and happier life. Together, we will create the therapy or coaching experience you are looking for to make a change in your life.
To get started, contact Erin and have a brief phone consult to ensure she can meet your therapy or coaching needs. Erin has other resources to refer to as needed. Erin will ask basic questions about what you're experiencing and discuss the service rates and initial paperwork. Then, set a date and time for your first session in person or via telehealth. You will be emailed a link if it is via telehealth and if you wish to fill out the paperwork online. Attend your first session and discuss more in-depth why you are interested in services, initial goals, and what therapy or coaching will look like going forward.
I am an out-of-network provider for insurance companies for therapy services. However, clients are able to check to see if their insurance covers services, and I can provide an invoice to submit to a client's insurance company to receive reimbursement. Most insurances do cover services but coverages can vary greatly. I have chosen to be out of network so that I can work directly with my clients to make decisions about their care and not have it be limited by insurance. Insurance often restricts the number of sessions, how many are covered, and who is able to be included in sessions.
Clients pay for services at the time of appointments and those interested in being reimbursed by insurance are given a statement to submit directly to insurance. It is recommended that clients review mental health coverage with their insurance prior to beginning services if they are interested in using their insurance.

* Please note that insurance does not cover coaching services due to no mental health diagnoses being treated.

Good Faith Estimate Notice
Beginning January 1, 2022, the No Surprises Act (H.R. 133) went into effect which includes new requirements for health care providers, facilities, health plans, and insurers to prevent consumers (a.k.a. patients) from receiving unanticipated medical bills. You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost if you are not submitting bills to insurance. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. Make sure your healthcare provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. Please let Erin Guyette know if you have questions about receiving a "Good Faith Estimate."
