How do I get started?
Contact to schedule a free 20-minute phone consultation. During this initial conversation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn about the therapy process. We will also discuss logistical issues such as scheduling and payment. It is important that you feel comfortable and together we will collaborate to decide if it's a good therapeutic 'fit.' If not, I will happily refer you to another professional. I look forward to hearing from you!
Do you accept insurance?
I am an "out of network" provider, which means you may be eligible for partial reimbursement through your insurance company. It is important to find out your coverage details by contacting your insurance carrier before scheduling an appointment and asking the following questions:
1. Do I have coverage for out-of-network mental health services?
2. If so, do I have a deductible?
3. What percentage of the session fee is reimbursable?
4. How many sessions are covered per year?
Your insurance company may ask you if you have a procedure code or CPT code for the therapy sessions you will receive. You may provide them with the following codes for the types of sessions provided and ask for their rate of coverage:
CPT code 90834 for a 50 minute session
CPT code 90853 for a group therapy session
I will provide you with a "superbill" to help you get reimbursed by your carrier
What are the session fees?
$175 for a 50 minute session. Sliding scale is offered on a limited basis based on financial need and availbility.
How many therapy sessions should I expect?
The number of sessions depends on your personal situation. You may only need as few as eight to ten sessions, or more over the course of several months. Sessions are initially scheduled on a weekly basis.
Do you offer therapy online?
Yes. Please inquire for more details.
