FAQs About Our Counseling In Ashburn VA

Do you accept Insurance?

We do not accept insurance and are considered self-pay so that we can focus on providing comprehensive and confidential services tailored to your needs without forced treatment plans/goals from insurance companies. Most of our clients choose not to involve their insurance provider in their treatment. Here is why: 

  • Insurance companies require providers to assign a mental health diagnosis to confirm that you have a "disorder." The concerns that bring clients to Mind Body Connect 360 often do not require a mental health diagnosis. Many seek services to explore, understand, and remove obstacles needed to reach optimal functioning in specified areas of their lives. We do not feel that it is beneficial to fit everyone into a mental health diagnosis box.
  • You will not have a diagnosis label permanently attached to your health record.
  • Your records are protected, which means all information about you, including very personal information, cannot be obtained by your insurance company.

If you have out-of-network benefits and would like to utilize them, as a courtesy, we're happy to provide you with documentation for out-of-network reimbursement.

The way this works: You will be required to make payment at the time of service. Upon request, we will give you a bi-weekly or monthly invoice (superbill) that you can submit for reimbursement for out-of-network benefits. Your insurance company will then send you a check directly with the reimbursement that they are willing to provide. Reimbursement is between you and your insurance company. If you are considering this option, it is advisable to contact your insurance company to inquire about your out-of-network benefits prior to your first appointment.

Can I schedule online?

Absolutely! The Mind Body Connect 360 online portal is an easy way for you to schedule sessions at your convenience from the comfort of your home 24/7. This scheduling option is open to both new and current clients. Click "Schedule a Session" at the top of the page to access the online scheduler.

Can you tell me more about your free consultation?

It's important for you to feel like you're making the best choice in finding a psychologist or psychotherapist. According to research, having a good fit with your psychotherapist is one of the most important predictors of having a successful outcome.

It's a chance to discuss your reason for wanting to work with a psychologist/psychotherapist and your goals and to get your questions answered. The most important part of the consultation is having enough time to determine if you would like to work with us! No deep dives into your psyche--just an opportunity for us to decide together if booking a session is the best next step. You won't be considered a client of the practice until you book a formal session, so no pressure for commitment.

If you don't have a debit card associated with your FSA or HSA account, we're happy to provide you with the documentation needed for you to go after reimbursement.

Are there specific mental health challenges you do not specialize in?

Yes, we do not specialize in the following:

  • Couples therapy
  • Sex therapy
  • Eating disorders Addictions, substance abuse
  • Family therapist/family therapy - However, we incorporate families when appropriate into counseling sessions when working with children, pre-teens and teens to support and strengthen the skills they are learning.

What can I expect from my first session?

The first sessions are known as initial intake sessions and are typically longer (60-75 minutes) than regular individual counseling sessions (50 minutes). This gives your therapist an opportunity to understand your history, learn about your goals, and begin to devise a plan for how to get you there. The first part of the session covers the initial paperwork, including informed consent, privacy, and practice policies. The second half of the session feels more conversational, where we are discussing important background information about who you are.

What is your Cancellation Policy?

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel or reschedule before 24 hours before your appointment. If you cancel less than 24 hours in advance or do not attend your appointment, you will be charged $80.00. We want to ensure you understand our policy before you begin working with us.

What's the difference between a clinical psychologist vs a psychotherapist when providing counseling services?

Both clinical psychologists and psychotherapists are highly trained professionals that provide counseling services and offer vital mental health support. Their differences are related to educational requirements. Psychologists have earned doctoral degrees (Ph.D. or Psy.D.) in clinical psychology and are trained in providing therapy and counseling services as well as psychological and psychoeducational test assessment. Their professional license is Licensed Clinical Psychologist.

On the other hand, psychotherapists have earned Master’s degrees and hold professional licenses such as Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Professional Counselor. Both clinical psychologists and psychotherapists diagnose and treat a wide range of mental health disorders with designated specialty areas depending on the practitioner's expertise and area of focus (i.e. anxiety, trauma/PTSD), depression, sports performance/peak performance, etc). Both clinical psychologists and mental health psychotherapists must be licensed and adhere to strict ethical and professional standards. All mental health and counseling services providers require state licensure to practice independently.
