Payment is due at the time of service. My fee for individual is $125 per 50-minute session and $165 for the introductory 60-minute session. I offer a free 15-minute consultation on the phone so you can get a sense of whether I’m the right fit for you. I accept all major credit cards, Venmo, CashApp and Paypal. I also accept Flexible Savings Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) as payment. I can provide provide documentation for reimbursable services if your insurance plan provides out-of-network benefits.
I currently offer services through Headway for the following insurance plans: Aetna, Cigna, Oxford Health, Oscar, and United Healthcare. Please visit Headway to schedule an appointment if you are insured by these five providers.
Most of my clients choose to not involve their insurance provider in their treatment. Here are some of the advantages:
- You won’t have a diagnosis label permanently attached to your health record.
- Your records are protected, which means all information about you, including very personal information, cannot be obtained by the insurance company.
- Your care is not dictated by the insurance company, but by the collaborative efforts formed by my professional expertise and your personal preferences and goals.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel or reschedule at least 24 hours beforehand. If you cancel less than 24 hours in advance or do not show up for your appointment, you will be charged for the full rate of the session.
The law protects the relationship between a patient/client and a psychotherapist, and information can almost never be disclosed without written permission.
In certain circumstances, the law requires a therapist to break confidentiality to protect the safety of the client and others. These include include suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse; potential homicide or serious harm to others; or risk of suicide or other self-harm.
