Answers To Your Questions
I know that choosing a therapist can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. That’s why I want you to rest assured that you’ve chosen well. Below you’ll find answers to some of my clients’ frequently asked questions. I’ve been able to cover quite a few topics, but if there’s something I haven’t touched on, please don’t hesitate to ask.
How much is the investment?
Let's think about it...
Speech-Language Therapy will help you and your child to communicate better, understand each other, interact, play and have fun. How much would you pay for that?
Feeding Therapy will help your child to eat more and better, to chew their food properly, to have happy meals instead of "oh-no is dinner time again" meals. How much would you pay for that?
Myofunctional therapy will help you or your child to breathe using your nose - not your mouth- will help you to sleep better -bye-bye snoring? and will help you to eat better. How much would you pay for that?
Bilingual speech therapy will connect with you and your family at a whole different level - culturally, and linguistically level. I understand your culture, your traditions, your parenting ways, your needs, and even your jokes. How much would you pay for that?
You are investing in your child's future. In your future.
Let's do it! We are going to be a great fit!

All fees for services are due on the day or at the time services are rendered.
A superbill and invoice for services rendered will be generated and provided on the 1st of every month for your records/insurance claims. A SuperBill is an Out of Network insurance claim that you can submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement for services. The client/caregiver is responsible for the verification of Out of Network benefit coverage provided by their insurance company prior to submitting a SuperBill. The client is responsible for paying for services upfront. The client can request a SuperBill at the end of each month from Brainstorm Speech Therapy, and we will generate a SuperBill that you will submit to your insurance company.

Mystery word/palabra misteriosa: Brainwave
Can I get a same-day appointment?
Unfortunately, not. Each session and evaluation requires specific/ detailed preparation. Contact me today so we can plan it together.
Please complete the intake form HERE or use the link at the bottom of the page
A FREE VIRTUAL CONSULTATION is mandatory before scheduling any evaluation. It is important to me to get to know you, answer your questions, share my approach and determine if we are a good fit for each other.
Will my insurance cover my visit?
Brainstorm Speech Therapy does NOT accept insurance at this time and is considered an OUT-OF-NETWORK PROVIDER for ALL insurances.
REASON? I believe that you deserve my whole attention, as a SOLO-PRACTICE I prefer to invest my time, energy, and resources in YOU and YOUR treatment plan. I also want YOU to have full control of YOUR treatment.
Private pay options allow for flexibility and creative solutions when providing services. Insurance companies often dictate the number and duration of services and occasionally do not cover speech services at all. By accepting private pay options only, we do not require referrals or prior authorizations.
I feel that, by operating as a private pay practice, I am able to provide a higher level of service with a top-notch quality experience. I am able to give my families and clients the therapy and support that they need without having to compromise on service based on insurance limitations.
I do offer superbills! (monthly statements for your OWN INSURANCE CLAIMS)
Depending on your plan and company, some insurances may reimburse for part or all speech therapy services.
Please call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask the representative what speech therapy coverage is with an out-of-network provider.
Use the following CPT codes:
Call/text me if you need help determining which codes apply to your case

If you still want to pursue services with BrainStorm Speech Therapy using your insurance's out-of-network coverage, don't hesitate to get in touch with me to move accordingly.
Note: I am licensed to provide Speech-Language Therapy Services in VA and NY. I can offer consultations in other states and countries, however, those services are ALL OUT-OF-POCKET. No superbills can be provided.
Friendly reminder: It is the family’s responsibility to save copies of all treatment notes, evaluations, progress reports, invoices, and superbills from handling any insurance claims.
Do you offer in-person and/or teletherapy?
BrainStorm offers a hybrid therapeutic model. The best mean of service will be discussed individually with each family/client.
In-home services: I will visit you in the comfort of your home - a traveling fee applies. (Reduced availability)
Community sessions: parks, supermarkets, local libraries, coffee shops, etc - traveling fee applies.
Office services: 307 E Annandale Road suite 208 Falls Church VA 22042 -APPOINTMENT ONLY
School sessions: If allowed, sessions can be completed at your children's school/daycare - a traveling fee applies.
Interactive Teletherapy session using ZOOM! (HIPAA secured)
Are sessions in English or Spanish?
Sessions will be completed in the preferred family language.
I particularly enjoy working with bilingual English-Spanish-speaking families because I am fascinated with how the bilingual brain works. Also, because I am LATINA (Colombia presente!!!) And I want to help my community as much as possible.
I believe that bilingualism and/or multilingualism is a RIGHT, and I will always do my best to honor your family's choice.
