Do you take insurance?

The short answer is no.

I do not participate in any insurance panels for two reasons: confidentiality and permanent record. All insurance companies require some degree of personal information to process a claim. Once clinical information is provided to the insurance company it becomes part of your permanent record, available to anyone with authorized access such as a future employer.

By offering a fee-for-service practice, I am able to protect your privacy and base treatment on your individual needs, not the financial wishes of the insurance companies.

If you choose to seek insurance reimbursement, I am happy to provide you with a monthly statement that you can submit directly to your insurance company. You will still be responsible for full payment during your
session.

Do you offer sliding scale fees?

Unfortunately, I don't offer sliding scale fees at this time.

How quickly can I get in to see you?

I'm typically able to see new clients within 7-10 days, sometimes sooner.

Are my therapy sessions confidential?

Yes, of course! Therapy is best experienced in an atmosphere of trust. Thus, all therapy services are strictly confidential and may not be revealed to anyone without your written permission, except where disclosure is required by law. Legal exceptions to confidentiality are in place to protect your safety and the safety of others. This includes when there is reasonable suspicion of child or elder abuse/neglect and where a client presents a danger to self, to others or to property.

What if I need to cancel or change my appointment?

When you schedule a session, that time is reserved solely for you. For this reason, I require 24 hours notice of cancellation or you will be charged the full fee for the session.

What is the cost of a therapy session?

$200.00 for 50 minutes and prorated accordingly for longer sessions.

What happens if I see you in public?

In the event that I see you outside of the office, I am discreet and will maintain your confidentiality. I typically follow your lead, so it is your choice to acknowledge the encounter or not.
