After you contact me, an initial consultation will be scheduled. If we mutually determine during that session that we’re suited to working together, we will agree upon a fee for services. These fees are based on the value of therapy and take into account the usual and customary charges of other clinicians in the area. If you determine that this fee exceeds what is reasonable for you to pay and have demonstrated financial need, I am happy to discuss this with you.
I do not participate directly with any insurance plans as an In-Network Provider. If you wish, I will provide you with a receipt, which contains the information necessary to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Many insurance plans provide for out-of-network benefits for Mental Health or Behavioral Health that you can access for partial reimbursement, typically 40-80% of service costs.
Be certain to find out from your insurance company what their reimbursement rate is for Individual Psychotherapy (CPT Code 90834), whether there is a deductible on your plan, and whether there is a cap on the number of sessions or duration of treatment. The mental health practitioner license I hold in New York is Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, or LCAT.
Payment is due at the beginning of each scheduled session. I accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
