Amy Leary, LCSW, LCAS, PLLC
5103 Monroe Road **
Charlotte, NC 28205
My practice is conveniently located on Monroe Road near the intersection of N. Sharon Amity Road and just off of Independence Blvd/74.
The office is approximately 10-15 minutes from Uptown Charlotte, South Park and Matthews. The building entrance faces Monroe Road and my office is on the first floor. When facing the building, my office is at the back left just past the bathrooms.
Afternoon and evening sessions only; my sessions are typically scheduled between noon and 8pm. Please call to schedule first sessions by phone. Mornings between 11 and noon are best to reach me by phone.
*As of December 1, 2021, first sessions for new patients are scheduled only as in-person office visits with proof of vaccination required.
**Effective March 16, 2020, I do offer some phone and video sessions and use HIPPA-compliant Doxy.me.
***Effective December 1, 2019, my practice moved next door to the previous location. The mailing address has not changed and remains: PO Box 9373, Charlotte, NC 28299. Several other women operate independent businesses in the building and we share a common lobby. There is also a separate waiting area beside my office.
Rates / Insurance
My self-pay rate is $125 per session hour. The first session for intake/assessment is $175.
Most insurance now covers individual therapy. Insurance typically requires a diagnosis. For this reason and to protect their confidentiality, some people understandably elect to not use insurance.
I am in-network with most Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC plans (not Blue Value, Blue Local, Blue Home UNC or Blue HPN) and file claims for in-network sessions. For in-network sessions, patients provide verification of benefits prior to the first session.
Many insurance companies provide out-of-network benefits and reimburse a percentage of the fee. Your insurance may consider me to be an out-of-network provider because I am a licensed clinician. Payment for out-of-network sessions is made at each session at the self-pay rate. I can provide information for you to file with your insurance and you may be reimbursed by your insurance according to your benefits.
*Contact your insurance about your plan's out-of-network benefits and whether your deductible has been met. Some plans reimburse out-of-network services at 100% after the deductible has been met.
