Free 30 Minute Consultation:
We offer a free 30 minute consultation session as an opportunity for you to get a sense of who we are and how we work. We want to support you in finding a good fit for the help you are seeking.

Payment:
Payments are to be made at the beginning of each session. Cash or checks are accepted for payment in our office. Please make checks payable to "Matthews PLLC."
Cancellation Policy:
If you do not attend your scheduled therapy appointment and we have not been notified at least 48 business hours in advance (i.e. by Thursday for a Monday appointment), you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
Insurance:
We do not take insurance at this time, but you may be eligible for an out-of-network reimbursement for individual therapy from your insurance company. You are responsible for the full fee at the time of the appointment. We will provide you with a statement of services upon request for you to submit to your insurance or healthcare provider for reimbursement.
We do not provide documentation for out-of-network reimbursement for couples counseling. Although some insurance companies will reimburse for couples counseling, the prevailing model for coverage will only reimburse for couples counseling as a medically necessary treatment where an insured partner in the couple has a diagnosed mental health issue such as clinical depression or anxiety. We have chosen not to work within this model because we think it gets in the way of providing our best care for our client couples.
While we recognize that relationship challenges can have a significant impact on partners, including clinical depression and anxiety in some cases, we believe that the time and attention required to diagnose, track, and document these mental health issues takes away from our focus on tending to the health of the relationship itself. We also think that identifying one of the partners as “the partner with the mental health challenge” is inconsistent with our belief that relationship challenges are co-created by both partners and significantly impact both partners. We would be happy to discuss this in more detail with you if you have questions.
