Psychotherapy is a joint venture with you and I partnering to identify your treatment goals and identify the steps that ARE needed to be taken to reach those goals. Some clients may reach their goals in a several sessions. Others may benefit from longer term work to dig deeper into the underlying issues that are leading to your distress or current life challenges.
Many insurance companies limit the number of sessions one can have, and all require a mental health diagnosis for reimbursement which can become a barrier to getting the help you need. I am an out of network (OON) provider, meaning I do not accept insurance directly, but can submit claims on your behalf if you have out of network coverage.
I do offer sliding scale fees and reserve a several spaces in my practice for those who do not have Out of Network coverage and are paying out of pocket. I am happy to reach out to your insurance company to determine if you have OON coverage, your deductibles, and premiums as part of the screening process. I will work with you to determine a rate based on your coverage and ability to pay out of pocket.
I accept various forms of payment, including all major credit cards, ATM cards, cash, PayPal, venmo, zelle and personal checks.
