Below I have answered the most commonly asked questions about my practice. If you have questions that are not answered here, I am happy to answer them via phone or email.
Do you take insurance?
No, I am not in network with any insurance companies. I am happy to provide a monthly statement that you can submit for reimbursement if your PPO plan has out of network reimbursement.
How much will my insurance reimburse me?
This depends on your plan. The best way to find out is to call your insurance company directly, and ask them what they reimburse for out of network mental health providers. Make sure you ask if there is a deductible you need to meet before you can start receiving reimbursement.
What does a therapy session with you cost?
Please inquire directly about session fees. Therapy sessions are offered in 45, 60 and 90 minute time increments.
Do you have sliding scale appointments available?
Most of the time I do not, but ask me, every once in a while I do have a slot available. Sliding scale clients are only seen before 5 pm on weekdays. I do have interns available to see clients at sliding scale rates on nights and weekends, and I supervise all of their cases. Please see their bios on the About Me page.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require 48 hours notice to cancel an appointment. Failure to give 48 hours notice will result in a charge of the full fee of your session.
Can you do phone or Skype Sessions?
If there is good reason, yes. Therapy works better in person, so I prefer to see patients face to face, but in the case of an emergency or having to leave town, I am able to provide phone and Skype sessions. Please be aware insurance does not reimburse for phone sessions.
Are you available after hours?
All of my clients can reach me 24 hours a day via email. DBT clients do have phone coaching available to them and access to me on my cell phone.
Do you work with kids, adolescents, couples and families?
I work with adult individuals aged 18 years and up, adult couples, and adolescents age 14 years and up.
