Counseling and Mental Health Therapy in Chesapeake Virginia
Does Humanitas Counseling and Consulting, LLC accept insurance?
Rachel Ann has intentionally decided NOT to accept health insurance plans, however, will provide a fee reimbursement form for you to submit to your insurance provider for possible partial or full reimbursement.
Why doesn’t Rachel Ann accept insurance? In not accepting insurance, we have the ability to create a plan for our work together that is truly authentic and FREE from being dictated by what an insurance carrier believes that you need. Rachel Ann believes your records should be kept completely confidential and through not using your insurance, you can rest assured that all records will remain private.
What does this look like for you? Peace of mind knowing that your records are kept between you and your therapist, as they should be.
Freedom in knowing if you are having a week of crises, we can easily meet twice in one week without having to justify anything to an insurance provider.
Security because your personal records and information will be maintained in complete confidence, no insurance audits, no justification of services. Only what you and your therapist believe you need.
Confidentiality + Freedom = An authentic space for you to be you.

Legal Issues and or Consultation with other Providers
If you request a report be written for another medical provider/school/employment concerning your mental health needs, there is a $75 fee per page due to time needed in preparation and review of records.
Clients are discouraged from having their therapist subpoenaed or having her provide records for the purpose of litigation. Even though you are responsible for the testimony fee, it does not mean that my testimony will be solely in your favor. I can only testify to the facts of the case and to my professional opinion. I would rather not damage the trust I have built in the counseling relationship with each client and it will be understood that the counseling relationship will be terminated if therapist must attend court/release records due to loss of therapeutic rapport and conflict of interest.
Fee schedule for legal issues is as follows:
- Preparation Time (including submission of records): $200/hr (billable in 15 minute increments)
- Phone calls: $100/hr (billable in 15 minute increments)
- Depositions: $250/hour
- Time required in Giving Testimony: $250/hour
- If I am excused from providing in person testimony and instead a written report/treatment summary, fee for treatment summary/report(s) will be billed at $125 per report, additional $75 per page if exceeds 2 pages.
- Time away from Office due to Depositions or Testimony: $200/hour
- All attorney fees and costs that are incurred by the therapist as a result of the legal action.
- Filing document with the court: $100
- The minimum charge for a court appearance: $1500
A non-refundable retainer of $1500 is due at least 48 business hours before the scheduled court appearance or when a trial date has been set, and expectation of payment for additional days of testimony needed is due prior to appearing.
If a subpoena or notice to meet attorney(s) is received without a minimum of 48-hour notice there will be an additional $250 “express” charge.
The remainder of the costs will be billed after the court appearance and will be due upon receipt.
If subpoenaed and the case is reset with less than 48 business hours notice prior to the beginning of the day of the scheduled subpoena, trial, and/or the testimony is not given, then the client will be charged $500 (in addition to original retainer of $1500 for having to appear in court).
If the therapist is scheduled to go out of town and must appear at court, all fees are doubled.
