I intentionally do not work with insurance providers. I realize this may be an inconvenience to you, however, it is for your protection and to ensure full confidentiality of everything discussed in our sessions. Insurance companies operate on a medical model that is disease based. In order to use your insurance company pay for your therapy, I have to give you a diagnosis that states you are ill. Next, depending on your insurance company, I may have to write a report every 5 to 10 sessions to show that you are still suffering with that Mental Disorder. In order for them to continue to pay for therapy, my report needs to show that you are still ill, although getting better, but are not cured yet. Also, having a Mental Disorder Diagnosis on your health records may potentially affect your ability to get lower health insurance in the future. However, I am happy to provide you with a super bill.
I charge $120 for a 50 minute session. I do offer a sliding scale, based on income.
Sessions are typically 45–50 minutes in length. If you would like to schedule a 90 minutes session, or session of a different length, please let me know. For children, I typically meet for 5–10 minutes with the parent, and then meet with the child for the remainder of session.
Cancellation Policy Appointments must be cancelled 24 hours in advance to avoid being charged. Missed appointments and cancellations made less than 24 hours in advance will result in you being charged at the full session rate.
