Dogwood Counseling, LLC
Specializing in evidence-based solutions for you and your family
Meet Dr. Beth Heller
Finding the right therapist is no easy task. The thought of explaining yourself to a stranger who
gets you, without judgement, can be scary. My practice is grounded in respecting your story, learning what got you to this point, and hearing about your hopes for the future. Then we will work collaboratively to develop a plan that will help you or your family become healthier and happier.
Are you struggling to cope with anxiety, depression, ADHD, or others issues that are holding you back? Is a family member having difficulty managing aspects of their life? I work with school-aged children, teens, and adults. I especially enjoy supporting parents in learning how to more effectively deal with their children's behavioral, developmental, and mental health challenges.
My training is in both school psychology (James Madison University) and clinical psychology (University of Virginia). I have worked in public school, community mental health, residential, and private practice settings and as a training clinic director (Virginia Commonwealth University). Questions about my background and experience? Please ask!
Let's Get Started
Step 1: Call me at 804.297.5654
Step 2: Spend about 15 minutes discussing your needs. Together we'll decide
if I will be a good fit for your and/or your family member.
Step 3: Schedule your first appointment.
Insurance and Payment
Rather than allowing your insurance company to determine the length and frequency of our work together, I accept direct payments from my clients. What this means for you is that you'll pay my full fee at each session. Often, insurance companies will reimburse you for a portion of that cost. I will be happy to provide you with the necessary paperwork to request reimbursement and in some cases may be able to file with your insurance company on your behalf.
During our initial phone call, I will answer your questions about this process and my fees. Before we meet for the first time, I will call your insurance company to ask if you have "out of network" benefits. I encourage you also to call your insurance company to confirm details about how - and how much - they will reimburse you for out of network services.
GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of their bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
If you will not be using insurance, I will give you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your appointment. You can also ask me, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an appointment.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1- 800-985-3059.
