Fees & Session Lengths

Payment

I accept payment in the form of a debit or credit card, a written check, or cash.  (For credit or debit card processing, a 3% bank fee charge will be assessed.). For your first appointment, I may ask for your credit card information to hold your appointment time.

Insurance Information

Please note that I am not an in-network provider for any insurance plan. Many of my patients do obtain reimbursement for out-of-network psychotherapy, which is an option if you currently have a PPO plan. Each month I provide a billing statement, which can be submitted to your insurance carrier for reimbursement. It is important to check with your carrier to determine your benefits for out-of-network providers, as your reimbursement may vary depending on your ‘diagnosis.’   Other options for payment include utilizing a Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account. I accept credit, debit card payment, check or cash only for payment.

Please feel free to talk with me about your insurance, and what might be possible, as I feel it’s important to advocate for your mental health benefits. If you are seeking a provider that is ‘in-network’ with your insurance plan, please refer to the provider list of therapists within your network.
