Right to a Good Faith Estimate
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. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.

Do you take insurance?No, I am an Out of Network (ONN) Provider. If you want to work with me and you are seeking ONN reimbursement from your insurer, it is your responsibility to contact your insurer about your ONN benefits. For more information, click here. If you decided to submit for reimbursement, I can provide a receipt, called a superbill, to you each month. Please notify me if you would like a superbill. Keep in mind that most insurance does not cover couples counseling (a “V code” diagnosis of relational distress). If one person in the relationship has a diagnosis, such as anxiety or depression, and therapy is tailored to treat that condition and working with the partner may help in treating the symptoms, your insurer may reimburse you for our sessions. While I do not accept insurance, I can provide you with an invoice that can be submitted to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. Questions to ask your insurance provider: What are mental health insurance benefits? What is my deductible and has it been met? What are my out of network benefits? How much will be covered per session? Is couples therapy covered? How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover? Is approval required from my primary care physician? Your insurance provider may also want to know the following details: My name and credentials: Anne Mauro, LMFT My license number is LF60898126 My NPI number is 1821545179
Do I need a sex therapist?Sex is often a taboo topic, and it’s no different in the therapy community. Most therapists did not receive medically accurate sex education growing up, just like many families don’t adequately discuss sex in their homes. In order for a therapist to graduate, most programs only require one 3-5 credit course on Human Sexuality. Look, I’ve taught this course at the graduate level, and I can assure you that it is not enough to competently address and treat your sexual concerns. Many general therapists are either not equipped or are uncomfortable talking about sex and the diversities of sexual expressions and behaviors. I have had many clients come to me after harm has been done with a previous provider that was so called "sex positive.” Please don't risk it. I am an AASECT certified sex therapist and educator with extensive education and clinical experience. I am here to gently walk you through a process that gives you permission to identify and reveal what your heart desires. Together, we will discover and explore the information, insight, and skills you need to create deeper and more meaningful connections within your mind, body, and relationships. If you want to experience embodiment, joy, pleasure, and love, I have the qualifications and the experience you need to help you be successful and reach your goals! Let’s get to mending all of those connections.
How do I know if I’m ready for sex therapy?Typically, my clients come to me because they feel stuck in sex and are looking for professional help from someone who can be trusted to both challenge and guide them with compassion and encouragement. Together, we will explore different aspects of your sexual self both hidden and vibrant. If you are willing to commit to the process and put in the work, it would be my privilege to support you in your journal of sexual rediscovery. If you are currently in conflict, I wouldn't recommend sex therapy with me. I do recommend you find a therapist that specializes in conflict like I specialize in sex. If you want to start sex therapy with me, I want everyone involved to have a mutual desire to work together towards a new space that moves us closer to our goals.
How do I know if my partner and I are not ready to do sex therapy together?Is there escalating conflict or do you find yourself arguing often? Do you feel that there is emotional distance between you or that you’ve "fallen out of love" with your partner? Are you questioning whether or not you want to leave your relationship? Are you considering separation? Does your relationship lack a mutual sense of trust, support, and commitment between both individuals to start the sex therapy journey? These are some telltale signs that you and your partner should consider relational therapy prior to starting sex therapy with me.
Do I need to bring my partner to therapy? What if I'm single?If you are in a relationship, and struggling with sexual and relational satisfaction, I recommended coming to therapy together. This will increase the likelihood of positive outcomes. If your partner is unwilling to come, or you are single, we can discuss how sex therapy can work for you.
