Frequently Asked Questions:

Do you accept insurance?

My services are generally reimbursable for out-of-network benefits by most insurance plans, but I currently do not work directly with insurance companies. I am happy to provide a monthly invoice for submission to your insurance company.

Why don’t you accept insurance?

The short answer is simple: I can do better and more private work for my clients if I work directly for them. The longer answer is the same but more complicated: Anyone who is a provider for a managed care program essentially works for the insurance company, not the client.

 

When there is no insurance company between my client and me, there is:

  • more confidentiality because I can’t be forced by an insurance company policy to share your information with them
  • more flexibility because there are no insurance company-imposed limits on the session numbers and treatment protocols
  • Better collaboration between you and me because there’s no third party interfering with our decision-making about your treatment

What is your cancellation policy?

Canceling or rescheduling requires 24 hours before your appointment to avoid being charged in full.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash, checks and all major credit cards are accepted. Payment is due at each session.

What about confidentiality?

The relationship between therapist and client is protected by law. Information cannot be disclosed without written consent. The only exceptions are if and when there is suspected child abuse/neglect or when the client threatens serious harm to self or others; in these cases, every effort is made to ensure the safety of those affected as required by law.
