I accept Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and HMO plans for individual therapy only.
If I do not accept your health insurance and you would like to use health insurance to cover therapy, you may pay me and submit my bill to your insurance company for reimbursement. Clients are responsible for knowing the extent and details of their mental health benefits and reimbursement particulars. Reimbursement rates vary.
Please note that health insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis to cover behavioral health visits. Because of this, many clients choose not to use insurance, as they do not want a mental health diagnosis attached to their records. A mental health diagnosis has proven detrimental in acquiring future life, health and disability insurances. It can increase insurance premiums and even prohibit some companies from approving you as a client.
In the event of a court proceeding or lawsuit, your mental health records may be subpoenaed.
Sessions run approximately 45-50 minutes. My fee is $150 for individuals and $175 for couples. My initial consult fee is $200.
Forms of Payment
Payment can be made by cash or check at time of visit.
I require 24-hours notice for a session cancellation so that I may have the opportunity to fill that slot with another client. A cancellation fee will be charged for those cancellations with under 24-hours notice.
