I have chosen not to bill insurance companies for your sessions for a number of reasons. First, when using insurance confidentiality is often not as secure as one might think. In order for your insurance to pay, I must communicate certain information to the company about you and your treatment. This includes your diagnosis, which can then stay in your file, potentially impacting your future insurance coverage. Furthermore, most insurance panels require that a diagnosis be made for treatment to occur. While some people do qualify for specific diagnoses, others do not. This does not mean that these individuals cannot benefit from counseling. Finally, I believe that you and I are the experts on what treatment plan will be best for you. I do not believe it is in your best interest for us to be restricted to a treatment plan determined by an insurance company.
"I believe in using approaches that work, and that have some basis in research, and that in my experience have been useful to my clients. My best and most profound teachers over the years have and continue to be my clients," Dr. Rush says.
"I feel that it is very important that my clients are pursuing the goals in treatment that are important to them, and that it is important to get results as soon as possible. It is important for therapy to be well focused and on target with regard to my clients' goals and priorities. I want the approaches used in therapy make sense to my clients, that my clients are in agreement with the approaches used, and that they are satisfied with how therapy is proceeding. I ask for feedback from clients in each session, and I believe in a collaborative process. I prefer that my clients have processes that they are working on in between sessions that are related to their goals, and that they are developing skills for the short and long term. I believe it is important for my clients to have methods they can use to maintain positive changes they make.
Dr. Rush tends to favor cognitive-behavioral approaches, but also recognizes and works with developmental issues, including adult development or phase of life issues. He is experienced in using EMDR and exposure with response prevention techniques. He also believes it is important to work with physiological issues which are related to mental and emotional functioning. He believes in being nonjudgmental and accepting, and in helping clients to develop and refine their abilities to use their thinking, emotions, and behavior in an integrated way to enhance the quality of their lives. He believes that there are some principles of change that seem to apply to most people, but that the specific tactics that a person uses are individualized.
Over the years Dr. Rush has consistently gotten very good feedback from his clients with regard to their treatment results. His clients also indicate that Dr. Rush focused on what was important to them, in a way that made sense to them.
He is on most insurance provider panels. The fee for clients who are paying out of pocket or self-pay is $100.00 per session.
When leaving a voice mail, sending a text or email, please let Dr. Rush how you would prefer that he respond and with regard to maintaining privacy for you.
