  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is my co-pay per therapy session?

Cash, check and all major credit cards accepted for payment.

Cancellation Policy
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full session fee for the missed session.

Questions about my rates or the insurance plans I accept? Please contact me for further information.


Preparing for your first session

If you are a new client, I will send you a link to my patient portal. You will need to fill out forms on the portal prior to coming to your first session.  

Completing these forms in advance of our first session will help us make the most of our time...thank you for your cooperation.

If you would like me to coordinate my treatment of you with another provider (for example, your psychiatrist, primary care physician, etc.), please complete this form and return it to me, which will authorize me to release your psychotherapy information to your provider:
