How much does therapy cost?
My (Megan) therapy sessions are $140 for a 50-minute session whether you’re coming individually or as a couple.
I also have a few wonderful therapists who works in my practice, Louisville Mindfulness Center.: Margaret Cox and Chris Davis. Margaret’s 50-minute sessions are $100 and Chris’s 50-minute session are $120. Chris is also able to work with people who have Anthem insurance (please call Anthem to verify he is covered under your type of Anthem).
Acceptable forms of payment are cash, credit card, Health Savings Accounts, and Flexible Spending Accounts.
Frequency of therapy depends on the intensity level of your current situation. Research shows that 8 -12 sessions seems to be a magic number for long-term overall improvement for people.
Many of our clients at Louisville Mindfulness Center are feeling a sustainable change take place after 4-6 sessions. Some clients need less and some need more, so it’s hard to determine what you will need. If possible, we encourage people to come for weekly sessions for the first few weeks to gain some momentum on the issues at hand. This works particularly well for clients who feel in crisis or are presenting more intense issues.
If our session rates are out of your price range and know you need therapy, please email us. We do maintain some sliding-scale spots. If you are ready for therapy but needing to use a sliding-scale, please send us an email and put “Sliding Scale” in the subject line. Our email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you take insurance?
While Megan is in the Anthem BCBS network she is not taking new Anthem BCBS clients. However, Chris Davis is taking new Anthem BCBS clients as of August 21, 2018. If you’d like to use your Anthem insurance to see Chris, please contact Anthem to verify that “Christopher Eric Davis” is covered under your specific plan and fill out the following paperwork while you’re on the call with Anthem: CONSENT TO USE ANTHEM HEALTH INSURANCE.
If you have another insurance carrier (Humana, Aetna, Cigna, United, etc.), I encourage you to check with them about your out-of-network benefits. I have several clients who successfully use their out-of-network benefits to see me. Please contact your insurance carrier for more information. Oftentimes, it involves you paying me first and then seeking reimbursement from the insurance company.
Do you offer a sliding scale fee?
I maintain a few sliding-scale spots lower than my rate of $140 per 50-minute session. Currently, all of those spots are full.
If you are needing to use a sliding-scale, please email or call us and ask for Margaret or Chris. They currently have some sliding scale spots open.
You can send them an email at LouisvilleMindfulnessCenter@gmail.com or schedule a FREE 10-minute face-to-face or phone consultation through our online scheduling to discuss this option further.
Do you offer a free consultation?
YES! Margaret and Chris offer a free 10-minute face-to-face or phone consultation to see if working together will be optimal for both parties.
While this is not a therapy session, it is a chance for you to tell your provider briefly about your current situation and ask any questions you have about your provider to feel more comfortable with beginning therapy.
