Insurance
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan.  Additionally, if you have a Flexible Spending Account (FLEX, HSA, FSA, etc) through your employer you can use those pre-tax dollars to pay for therapy services.  Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have out-of-network mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is therapy covered by my Flex plan?

I am a registered out of network provider for Empire Blue Cross and Blue Shield as well as other private insurance companies.

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

Payment
Cash, Checks, Chase QuickPay, PayPal, VISA, MasterCard and American Express.

Cancellation Policy 
It is extremely important that you attend and be on time to every session.  If you must cancel your therapy appointment, I require 24 hours notice.  If you do not give 24 hours notice, you will be responsible for the full cost of the session.  Extenuating circumstances (severe illness, inclement weather, death of a loved one) will be taken into consideration.  In the event you must cancel a session, an effort will be made to make up the session within the current week. (Schedule Permitting)
Thank you for your consideration regarding this important matter.

Is there a benefit to paying "out-of-pocket" for therapy versus using my insurance?

In order for the treatment to be covered by the insurance company, the therapist must submit paperwork that includes a mental health diagnosis for the client. The purpose of this is to prove to the insurance company that there is “medical necessity” for the treatment. Many people prefer to not have any record of treatment or a documented diagnosis.

Additionally, when one is paying "out-of-pocket" there is a greater investment and potentially a greater commitment to the work and progress.  Being a part of a therapeutic team means there is a higher level of accountability for both client and therapist to be "doing the work".
