Couple upset with each other painted with words.

Mariposa Psychotherapy Services (MPS) is an association of independently practicing professionals who provide an array of mental health services to individuals, couples, and families, including those with special needs. Licensed professionals include Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists and Licensed Professional Counselors.

We share certain expenses and administrative functions, but each professional is completely independent in providing you with clinical services, and each associate maintains separate records. Professional service fees may be covered by insurance companies.

  • Call today for a free initial phone consultation and fee schedule 512-795-0402. The fee schedule includes a few sessions each week deemed "low-demand time slots." These are less popular times in the day and therefore the fee for these sessions are less than the standard fee.
  • If you have a Health Savings Account, it will pay for sessions. Please mention this when you schedule a session.
  • I am an in-network provider with Humana, ChoiceCare and LifeSync.
  • If you have an insurance other than Humana and ChoiceCare or LifeSync, I will be an out-of-network provider. With the new healthcare reform, many insurance policies reimburse at a fairly high rate when seeing an out-of-network mental health provider. For faster reimbursement on these policies, we will be glad to file your insurance for you.
  • Cash, checks and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express & Discover) are accepted.
  • How to verify your insurance--get your mental health benefits.
