Insurance
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
  • How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network provider?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Reduced Fee
Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis.

Payment
Cash, check and paypal are accepted for payment.

Cancellation Policy
If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the treatment as booked.

Why I do not accept insurance directly:
Ethically, I do not agree with 3rd party reimbursement due to confidentiality, I believe it is not in the best interest of my clients.  Specifically:
1.  All your information, including diagnoses, goes into a central computer bank which can be accessed by any physician, college, law enforcement agency, military group, insurance company, etc. and can be used against you (or your children).
2.   Most HMO's and PPO's only authorize a limited number of sessions, and even if you feel you may need more, they may not authorize them, nor allow you see me more often or past their cut-off date, and you may have to change to a different therapist outside their network and pay full fee mid-treatment. I also may be required to give detailed reports regarding your issues and progress in order to get more sessions authorized, and your treatment plans may be dictated to me by your managed care representative. 
3.  Most managed care plans do not cover life adjustment issues, couples or marital counseling, family conflicts, or any other presenting problem that does not meet the definition for 'mental illness.' Furthermore, they often will not allow sessions for clients who do not have AXIS I diagnoses, which are typically more serious mental illnesses. I cannot ethically give you a diagnosis that does not fit your situation simply to get insurance reimbursement.
