FAQ

WHO DO YOU WORK WITH?

I work with adult individuals 18+, adult couples, and groups. I also provide services to organizations and corporations.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST SESSION?

Your first individual therapy session will consist of a 50-90 minute intake, where we will discuss your current concerns, history, and background will be thoroughly discussed. Based on the assessment, I will be able to determine if I am the right fit for you, and if not, will provide you with multiple referrals. Sometimes at the end of the first session I will be able to discuss a potential treatment plan, outlining the sorts of interventions that will likely be used in your therapy. Other times, an additional assessment session is needed to create a more complete treatment plan. 

 

Subsequent sessions will be 50-minutes in length unless otherwise agreed upon.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?

Dr. Deniz's fees are set based on her credentials, training specializations, and community standards for doctoral level clinicians. In addition to session time, rates cover time spent in between appointments on various tasks, such as phone calls, research for other resources you may need, reviewing your progress, preparing needed paperwork, and most importantly, considering how to best help you. 

Fees are collected at the time of service. The fee for a 50-minute session is $225.

A limited amount of reduced fee therapy slots are reserved for those experiencing financial hardshipPlease contact me for more information.

 

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

 I am not affiliated with any particular insurance panel. This is to ensure the greatest level of privacy, flexibility and control of your treatment and mental health records. I am happy to provide you with a statement, called a superbill documenting the services provided and that you have paid for them, which may then be submitted to your insurance for possible reimbursement.  

You can check your coverage by asking your insurance company the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health benefits?

  • What is my deductible and has it been met?

  • How many mental health sessions per calendar year does my insurance plan cover?

  • How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network mental health provider?

  • How do I obtain reimbursement for therapy with an out-of-network provider?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

 

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel or make changes to a scheduled appointment, please notify me at least 24 hours prior to your appointment time. If the appointment is cancelled less than 24 hours in advance, you will be responsible for payment of the full session fee.
