If you’re paying for yourself then I ask for payment at each session. I accept cash, cheque, card, or electronic transfer. If your insurance is paying for you, we can discuss whether I should bill them directly or ask you to pay and claim the money back from them. If they refuse to pay for some reason, I’ll ask you to pay instead. If you’re unable to pay then therapy can’t continue until you do.
