Payment

All payments are made electronically through an online portal. Payment info and a fee agreement must be in place before services can begin (including groups).

 

Cancellation Policy

All cancellations must be made more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled visit to avoid a late fee. Cancellations and missed visits incur your full regular fee. You can contact us through secure messaging in the client portal, email, text, or call to cancel. Bonus visits cost your same full regular fee. Fees are the same for video and phone visits. If you are using insurance and miss a visit or cancel in under 24 hours, you will be responsible for your therapist's full standard rate.

 

Insurance

Mental health services may be covered by your health insurance or employee benefits plan. Jen is currently in-network with Pacific Source. Some insurance companies will reimburse you for our visits if they are willing to do a single case agreement or cover services as an out-of-network provider. We can check your benefits for all insurance carriers to see if your plan offers out-of-network coverage, which may result in highly discounted rates for you. Dani and Jeanne-Marie are not able to accept insurance at this time.

Trauma & Dissociation Assessment

Instead of planning to meet together for ongoing therapy, or if you are on Jen's waitlist, meeting for an assessment only is an option. The assessment includes three appointments, similar to regular therapy, but for the purpose of clarifying your diagnosis. Sometimes a therapist or physician will request this assessment to better understand what you are experiencing and how to support you moving forward. The assessment is specific to trauma and dissociative disorders, such as posttraumatic stress disorder, dissociative identity disorder, or depersonalization/derealization disorder.

Between visits, you will complete online screenings and assessments so we can review them together at each meeting. On the third visit, we will discuss the results and treatment recommendations. Within about 4-6 weeks, Jen will give you a written report that provides details about the diagnosis and clinical recommendations. If you would like to go over the report together or have feedback or questions, you can request a fourth meeting for discussion. If one of your other providers or supporters would like a copy of the report, you may complete a release of information so it can be sent. The flat rate for the T&DA is $525, to be divided evenly between visits. Fees can be flexible and are subject to change with advanced written notice.

 

 

Disclaimers: Jen does not provide comprehensive psychological evaluation such as that which is typically provided by psychologists. While she can support you with a variety of goals and mental health needs, her main focus is on serving individuals within the DID community. She does not specialize in assessment, diagnosis, or treatment specifically for ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, traumatic brain injury, eating disorders, or substance use/addiction, nor couples/marriage/family therapy or working with children under the age of 16. She is generally available during business hours, but may be unable to take your call or get back to you for 2-3 business days. The TPOW clinicians are not available for 24-hour crisis support; please call 911, non-emergency, or your local crisis hotlines if needed. New: for immediate mental health support, call or text 988.

 

We are sex-positive therapists and support individuals in non-traditional relationships, such as polyamory and platonic partnerships, as well as folks within the LGBTQIA community. We align with the Health At Every Size (HAES) model, which does not asccribe to typical societal beliefs and expectations associated with weight, physical attraction, body size, or BMI.
