♦ Do you take insurance?
No, but I am happy to provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance company.
♦ What are your rates?
My rates are based on the length of the session. Payment is due at the time of your session.
60 minutes - $125 90 minutes - $180 120 minutes - $235
♦ What is your cancellation/missed appointment policy:
I require a 24-hour notice for all cancellations. Failure to cancel within that time frame results in a charge of your full session fee.
♦ Are telephone sessions available if I am not able to make my appointment in person?
Yes, I am able to do phone sessions if you are unable to attend a session. If distance counseling is a preference for you, I am able to offer ongoing video/telephone sessions (telehealth). Please look under the telehealth section of this website for additional information.
♦ What are the confidentiality standards you are required to meet?
Hipaa law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without a client’s written permission. Exceptions to this law include the following:
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
♦ What is your availability?
I usually see clients from 9am-5pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. I do have a limited number of evening appointment times available for those with hectic work schedules.
For those who are looking for a higher level of confidentiality, Saturday and Sunday appointments can be arranged at a higher fee. If this is of interest to you, I'd be happy to talk with you about this.
♦ What age range of clients do you see?
I work with individuals, ages 13-70.
♦ How do I book an appointment?
You can leave me a detailed message on my confidential voicemail that includes your name, telephone number and the best time to reach you. You can also send me an email under the 'Get in Touch' section of this website.
