Most sessions are 45-50 minutes in length. Intake sessions may last up to 90 minutes depending on how we schedule it. If phone calls or extended email contacts are required for treatment, the first 15 minutes are free and you will be charged a pro-rated fee for the remaining time.

If I am not a participating provider for your current plan, I can work with you as an out-of-network provider and assist you with the billing and reimbursement process. Sometimes these benefits may be comparable to your in-network coverage. Please contact your insurance company’s member services to determine if you have out-of-network benefits. On the Forms page I have a handy guide on how you can check your out-of-network benefits with your insurance provider. If you wish, you may also decide to pay privately.

If you have questions about the insurance process, you can ask me or look online.

Please note that when using your insurance benefits for psychotherapy, most insurance companies require information, such as a diagnosis, that will become part of your medical record.
