Amelia does not accept insurance. She made this decision for a few reasons: 1) Insurance companies request private information about you to approve therapy services (i.e. your diagnosis, progress notes, and treatment plans), and 2) Insurance companies can limit the services available to you based on this private information. By paying out-of-pocket for services, you are guaranteed increased privacy and control of your therapy experience. Due to the fact that Amelia works primarily with neurodivergent people, she feels that working out-of-pocket is the most ethical way to ensure she can provide quality services that are tailored to your specific needs. Please let Amelia know if you have any questions about fees.

Intake Assessment: $150 (Waitlist closed)

The intake assessment is typically completed during your first session to begin therapy services with Amelia. During this assessment, you will discuss your current concerns and history of these concerns, including biological, psychological, and social factors impacting you. At the end of the assessment, Amelia will discuss if you meet criteria for a diagnosis, a plan for services, and referrals that may benefit you. Available for individuals living in Ohio and Kentucky.

Individual Therapy: $115/session (Waitlist closed)

Therapy services are provided over secure video after completing the intake assessment. Special focus on autism, ADHD, trauma, LGBTQIA+, trans and gender diverse persons, and diverse relationship structures. Services will be tailored to meet your individual needs and therapy goals. Available for individuals living in Ohio and Kentucky.

Autism Evaluation: $200/session (Waitlist closed until July 18th, 2022)

Autism evaluations based in neurodiversity affirming practices are available for individuals in Ohio and Kentucky. The evaluation process typically takes 2 sessions (60-90 minutes each). The total cost of the evaluation process is $400, with each session costing $200 at the time of service. During these sessions, you will complete standardized measures (MIGDAS-2, SRS-2, BRIEF-A) and a full biopsychosocial assessment. At the conclusion of these sessions, Amelia will provide you with a written report with the results of your evaluation and recommendations specific to your strengths/needs.

Amelia has received extensive education, training, and supervision to meet the CSWMFT Board guidelines for conducting autism evaluations as an LPCC. She also engages in ongoing training and consultation with other providers who conduct neurodivergent affirming autism evaluations through-out the country. There are differences in being assessed by a licensed counselor versus a licensed psychologist, which you will discuss with Amelia prior to initiating any services. Please email amelia@ameliaslama.com with any questions.

Consultation: $90

Good Faith Estimate Notice

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical 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 the 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.

Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

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.
