I accept most health insurance, it is highly recommended to check with your insurance company to determine co-pay and deductible if they apply.
Private pay (paying for services out of pocket/ not using health insurance) is becoming more popular. This is for several reasons.
First, Insurance companies are cutting mental health related benefits; you may have a deductible, paying out of pocket can be more cost effective.
