Do you accept Insurance?
I am an out-of-network provider. If you have a PPO (Preferred Plan Option), you most likely have out of network benefits. It is your responsibility to check with your insurance company to verify your coverage for mental health outpatient office visits so that you can calculate out of pocket cost. I will provide a statement containing the necessary codes and information so that you can submit a claim for reimbursement to your insurance company.
For those that are not using insurance and find it financially difficult to afford therapy, there is limited availability on a sliding scale.

Making an Appointment
When you make the initial call, I will be happy to answer your questions about my practice and if my approach will be a good fit for you.
Your first appointment is our opportunity to begin getting to know each other. Therapy requires a commitment of your time and money and it is essential for you to feel you have connected with the right therapist. When you come in, we will address the reasons you are seeking therapy and what goals you want to accomplish.
Throughout the course of therapy I use different techniques and approaches depending on each individual's needs and desires. Your participation and feedback are vital to the process and progress of therapy. As the saying goes “if nothing changes, nothing changes”.
What if I have to cancel and appointment
If you need to cancel or reschedule a session, please provide 24 hours notice. If you do not cancel a scheduled appointment with adequit time you will be billed for the entire cost of your missed appointment. Insurance does not reimburse for missed sessions.
