I can find room in my schedule within 1-2 weeks of a prospective
client’s call. Critical issues
can be squeezed in within 48 Hrs My office hours are 9:00 a.m.
until 8 p.m. Monday
through Friday and until 5:00PM on Saturdays. A session typically
lasts for 50 minutes, which includes time spent paying fees, setting
up future appointments, etc.
Extended sessions can be arranged, and may sometimes make more sense if someone
travels some distance to see me. Sessions can be arranged on a weekly, biweekly,
or monthly basis, or as needed.
The first few sessions will involve an evaluation of your needs, into which
we will both offer input, after which I will offer you some initial impressions
of how I view your concerns and what our work might include, if we decide that
we are a good match, and want to continue working together.
Insurance and Fees
I accept many major insurance plans. Counseling services may be
covered by your insurance benefit plan. If you are covered I will
do all of the billing to your insurance company for you. Any deductible
or co-payments are due at the time of service. Please check your
coverage by calling the number on the back of your card. You may
want to ask the following questions.
1. What are my mental/behavioral benefits?
2. Do I have a deductible, what is the amount and has any of it been
3. Do I need a referral from my primary care doctor?
4. How many sessions per year does my plan allow.
5. What is my co-payment?
Some clients choose to pay for privacy reason or because I am not
a provider with their insurance company. If you choose to self pay,
those payments are due at the time of service. If I am out of network
for your plan then I am happy to provide a statement for you to submit
to your insurance company so that you can be reimbursed.
My fee is $110 for a 50-minute session
Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis.
Cash, check and money orders are all accepted for payment.
Please Pay to the Order of: Dianne Ouellette, MSW. LICSW
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and
you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be
required to pay the full cost of the session.
