INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

I help adults who are overwhelmed by anxiety or burnt out by chronic stress to recover. My name is Dr. Daniella Pedroso Haggerty, and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in AZ. I have a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) and I am trained in insight-oriented psychodynamic therapy for long-term therapeutic exploration. I also offer briefer modalities such as Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) for anxiety disorders and Exposure and Relapse Prevention (ERP) or inference-based CBT (iCBT) for OCD. I provide trauma-informed psychotherapy for adults who are ready to change. My style is empathetic, warm but also direct.

Individual therapy will promote better insight and develop self-awareness. We will identify and challenge unhelpful negative thoughts, beliefs, and behavioral patterns. We will focus on your strengths and build your resilience. Together, we will work on the problems that are interfering with your ability to live, love and laugh.  If you are ready to get started, click the button below.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

You Ask - I Answer

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

 

I am licensed to practice in the State of Arizona as a Psychologist. My office is located near Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, and N. Phoenix on Tatum Blvd overlooking the Stonecreek Golf Course.

DO YOU OFFER AFTER HOURS APPOINTMENTS?

Saturday appointments are available.

HOW WILL I KNOW WE ARE A GOOD FIT?

I ask new clients to fill out a pre-screening online that will help guide me to either invite for an intake or refer out.

The intake and the first three sessions are usually an evaluation period as well. I do not offer free consultations and only provide services for people who have signed proper consents ensuring that time is spent with people who are committed to entering into therapy. 

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

I am an out-of-network provider. I can provide you with a Superbill that you can submit for reimbursement for out of network services. Some insurance plans offer reimbursement of 80-90% of the out-of-pocket costs. Please contact your plan to ask about your out-of-network benefits. If I am still listed as an in-network provider please note I am in the process of getting off all insurance panels.

HOW DO I GET REIMBURSED FOR OUT OF NETWORK SESSIONS?

Please ask your insurance about how to get reimbursed for your out-of-pocket costs but there are soma apps that may also help you do that conveniently for a small fee such as Reimbursify, Float, and The Superbill

WHY CHOSE AN OUT-OF NETWORK PROVODER AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SELF-PAY?

When dealing with insurance, clinicians must assign a clinical diagnosis and document medical necessity. These diagnosis stay on your records and they would not authorize payment for you to work on issues such as self-esteem, work-life balance, and other common issues that bring clients to therapy. In order to be paid (or reimbursed), clinician must bill for services by assigning a qualifying clinical diagnosis on the patient's record. Insurance companies may also dictate how many sessions they authorize, or deny claims alleging there is no medical necessity. Checking benefits is not a guarantee of payment, and claim denials leave clients with a surprise bill or an unplanned outstanding balance. The insurance company can also request to review records. Payment is not guaranteed, and your records may not be completely private or confidential.

Many clinicians who take insurance are often over-burdened with eligibility verification, billing, and claim reviews and are often under-paid. These clinicians often find themselves burnt out and the overall quality of client care could suffer. Self-Pay clients know how much the cost would be in advance and have no surprises (Good Faith Estimate).
