Therapy Services for New Clients
*For all new clients please email us about availability of sessions. Please include a few words about your current needs in therapy, your insurance plan, and desire for in person or telehealth sessions.
We are providing both in person and telehealth sessions. Telehealth session can be provided to residents of VA, MD or DC, depending on the chosen therapist. We can provide in person sessions to anyone residing in the DMV who are fully vaccinated, boosted, past the 2 week immunity window and willing to provide us with validation via their vaccination card. Masking is not required for in person sessions but is required in the waiting room.
We are only in network with non-HMO, otherwise known as PPO, Carefirst and BCBS plans. If you are concerned about whether we are in-network provider on your plan, please contact Carefirst and ask if the provider with this NPI number: 1336563527, is covered on your plan. Please note that Rachael Stern does not take insurance but can provide superbills for out of network reimbursement.
Currently most insurers do not reimburse for couples/relationship sessions and many sex related issues. In many cases we can provide you with an out of network invoice to receive a substantial reimbursement from them. For all other insurers, with an out of network policy, we are happy to provide you with an invoice for reimbursement. The fee for a session varies depending on your plan. Session fees must be paid at the time services are rendered. Which would be charged to your card on file with the practice.
We intentionally hold spaces for those who identify as kinky, ethically non-monogamous, LGBTQIA, sex workers and gender non-conforming. If you are in need of sliding scale please contact us to inquire about openings. When contacting us, please send a few words about your current interests in therapy, what your financial barriers are, what communities you are a part of and (if applicable) the type of insurance plan you have.
