When can I see you?

  • 50-minute appointments are available 10am-7pm Monday-Thursday.

  • You can contact me to schedule your first session.

Do you do online therapy?

  • Yes, I offer therapy over a secure, confidential, HIPAA-compliant video conferencing platform.
     

How does payment work?

  • My standard fee for each session ranges from $200-250.

  • I reserve a limited number of spots for reduced-fee appointments based on financial need, which we will discuss during our first conversation.

    • As of Winter 2022, these spots are full.

  • You can pay me by cash, credit card, or Health Savings Account.

Why is therapy so expensive?   

  • When working with me, you are not only paying for our time together in a therapy session.  Your fee also covers the work I do throughout the week to provide you with the quality of care you deserve, including: 

    • Email correspondence regarding administrative matters

    • Coordination and collaboration with your other healthcare providers, as appropriate

    • Brief phone calls in cases of mental health crisis

    • Research, education, and training

    • Consultation from expert therapists

    • Record-keeping

Do you take insurance?​

  • I do not accept insurance, but if your health insurance plan has out-of-network benefits, I can assist you with obtaining substantial reimbursement for therapy fees (often 50-70%, depending on your plan).

 

How do I find out if (or how much) I can get reimbursed?

  • You'll need to contact your health insurance company (call the Member Services ​number listed on the back of your card or log in to their website), and ask them the following:
    ​​
    • Do I have out-of network coverage for outpatient psychotherapy (CPT code 90834)?

    • What is my deductible, and have I met it yet?

    • What is my coinsurance (% that the insurance company will pay after the deductible has been met)​?​
