Most medical insurance plans will reimburse you for my services,  according to your plan's Out of Network services reimbursement schedule.

Clients pay me directly and I file insurance claims for clients' reimbursement.

Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

    • What are my mental health services benefits?
    • What is my reimbursement amount for psychotherapy/counseling with a doctoral level, licensed psychologist?  
    • Is there a limit to the number of therapy sessions my plan covers? 
    • What is the deductible for my out-of-network benefits?   
    • Is approval required from my primary care physician? 

Cash, check and all major credit cards accepted for payment.  A credit card is required to secure the first appointment and is charged 24 hours in advance of the appointment.
