After a free 20-minute phone consultation, if we feel that working together could be helpful, we’ll schedule your initial appointment. I see most clients on a weekly basis for 50-minute sessions. I’m certified in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), for which I schedule 90 minutes for the initial session. Most insurers will cover only 50- or 60-minute sessions, so clients are responsible for any additional time/fees pro-rated at $130.00.
I offer appointments by Zoom (preferred, most HIPAA secure), Skype, Facetime or phone.
Other services, for example preparing reports and letters, preparing/copying medical records, or consultations with your other treating professionals will be prorated at the rate of $150.00/hour.
I am an in-network provider for insurances and EAPs including Aetna, AmeriBen, Cigna, Cofinity, ComPsych, Deer Oaks, Health Advocates, LifeSolutions, Life Synch, Optum, United Behavioral Health, Workplace Options, and Crime Victims Compensation among others. If my practice is not one that is in-network, your insurance may pay a significant percent of out-of-network charges. With the fast-changing insurance market, it’s best if you check directly with your insurance company and specific plan before your initial appointment.
If you are paying privately, I will prepare a monthly statement for you to submit to your insurer along with your claim. Payment is due before or on the date of each appointment. I accept cash, checks or Pay Pal (with the added convenience fee of 2.9% + $.30) I do not accept any other form of payment.
I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
