FAQ

Consultation & Psychotherapy Services

Therapy begins with an evaluation of your needs and goals. During our first appointment, I will offer some initial impressions of what our work together should include. If we decide to work together, we will schedule once or twice weekly, 45 minute sessions, longer for EMDR and couples sessions. If you are considering medication, I work closely with a number of trusted psychiatrists and psychopharmacologists who can assist with that part of your treatment. As needed, I will consult with your other providers to ensure coordinated treatment.

Insurance

I do not accept insurance directly.  If you have a plan that allows you to select an out-of-network provider, you may be eligible for reimbursement. I am happy to assist you with this process. You are responsible for payment of individual weekly sessions. I know that for many, the idea of going to an out-of-network provider might seem out of their budget at first, it helps to know that the majority of my patients submit their statements to their insurance providers and receive 60-80% reimbursement.  After formulating a diagnosis, I can provide a monthly billing statement/receipt for clients to submit to their insurance for reimbursement. The CPT code to inquire about is 90806. Payment is due in full at the beginning of an initial consultation and subsequent sessions in the form of cash, check or paypal.  I make a limited number of appointments available at a sliding scale fee, and am happy to discuss this with you.

Cancellation

Therapy works best when scheduled appointments are regularly kept. Your time is reserved for you and cannot be used by anyone else.  If you need to miss a session, I make every effort to reschedule in the same week, otherwise you are responsible for payment.  I will always offer a phone session if you are unable to come to my office.
