HOW MUCH IS YOUR FEE?

We use a sliding scale in the practice to determine the fee based of the combined annual income of the family (your income plus the income of your significant other).

When you request an appointment using our online portal, our secure and HIPPA compliant client portal will automatically send you a full intake packet with all the information you will need including the sliding scale, as well as the information you will need to fill out before your first appointment.

Your information is only to secure your appointment, and you can go back to the portal at any time – until 48 hours before- to cancel your appointment at no charge.

For your convenience, we have 4 different pricing options for our clients to suit every need and budget.

1) Our clinical interns see clients for 70$/ individual session and 90$ for couples sessions.

2) Our Licensed counselors fees are on a sliding scale starting 120$/session

3) Our Chief clinical officer (Carla Seemann) fees are on a sliding scale starting 160$/session

4) Sam Nabil’s fees are on a sliding scale starting 220$/session.

* Please note that the sliding scale fees quoted above are the entry point on the scale. Your fees may be different than what is quoted above.

** Please note that not all therapists are available in all locations.

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

We provide all clients with receipts and or super bills to file with their insurance companies. Most of my clients get reimbursed a substantial portion of our fee by their insurance. We do not work with insurance directly.

Taking insurance in most cases means we must diagnose you with a mental health illness. Most of the clients we see do not have a mental health illness, and we therefore find it very disturbing that insurance companies would require us to provide one. This is especially disturbing because your diagnosis would stay on your medical record.

Insurance companies also insist on establishing time limits for counseling in most cases.

We believe a diagnosis and how much you want to stay in counseling should be your choice, and not the choice of your insurance company.

We have therefore chosen to operate out of network, and leave you with the Choice. You can apply for out of network reimbursements or chose to keep your work with us private.

HOW DO I GET INSURANCE REIMBURSEMENT FOR YOUR SERVICES ?

When you have made your out of pocket payment to us, you will automatically recieve a bill/invoice in your email.

For easy and convenient reimbursment for your out of network insurance claim, we recommend you use the getbetter app on your phone.

WHAT IS COUNSELING?

Counseling is “talk therapy”, an approach to psychotherapy that involves no use of therapeutic drugs, and is focused on establishing a high level of collaboration between a professional counselor and yourself. The collaboration aims at addressing your immediate psychological needs, as well as examining and correcting erroneous self held beliefs, negative thought patters, and harmful relationship patterns that are distressing you or causing problems in one of the major areas of life ( Home, work, and school).

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COUNSELOR AND A PSYCHIATRIST?

Many get confused about the difference between a counselor and a psychiatrist. The main difference is that a psychiatrist is a medical doctor trained in counseling. As such, they see your concerns through a medical model lens, which stipulates that concerns stem from a biological problem, and thus the solution is to administer medicine to correct the imbalance. In contrast, Counselors view you from a “strength based approach”, where we collaborate with you to discover the resilience and strength you have, and leverage that to empower you to effectively address your challenges.

At  Naya Clinics our approach to therapy draws from the humanistic school of psychotherapy and the existential school of psychotherapy to create our own unique approach Positive Existential Therapy PET developed by our founder Sam Nabil
