I will call and confirm that I am in network with your insurance prior to our first meeting.  If I do not accept your insurance,  your PPO insurance carrier or employee benefit plan may pay in full or in part for out-of-network providers.  Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

I am happy to provide a monthly receipt which you can submit to your insurer or to your Healthcare Reimbursement Account (HRA).

Sessions are typically scheduled to occur one time per week at the same time and day if possible.  Your consistent attendance greatly contributes to a successful outcome.  Please reschedule or cancel an appointment at least 24 hours in advance.  If you do not provide at least 24 hour notice  in advance, you will be responsible for payment of a late fee of $30 for the missed session.
