Payment Information

All work is done in private counseling sessions, individually or as a couple. Therapy sessions are 50 minutes during the day and evenings. The duration of therapy depends solely on your goals and issues. My practice is a combination of direct-pay and health insurance benefits. Many clients have health insurance that covers therapy or counseling sessions. I am an out-of-network provider and I am happy to provide you with detailed invoices that you can submit to your insurance company for subsequent reimbursement after each session (payment is due at time of service). It is often possible to receive reimbursement from your insurance company when your policy is a PPO or POS plan. I will help you navigate the insurance process by counseling you on appropriate questions to ask your insurance company regarding treatment and reimbursement.
