We accept payment at the time of your service. We can provide you with a receipt if you wish to file a claim with your health insurance plan. Our services may be covered in full, or in part, by your insurance. Cash, check and
all major credit cards are accepted for payment
We are not contracted with any insurance providers and we do not bill insurance. However, you may want to consider submitting your bill to insurance for reimbursement. We have found that many health insurance plans will reimburse at least part of our fee. Each insurer pays differently
depending on your contracted benefit plan. If you'd like, we can assist you with submitting your claim.
Because our private practice is not affiliated with any insurance panels, we would be considered "out-of-network" providers. If you wish to file with your insurance for reimbursement, please check your coverage carefully by asking
the following questions:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per session? (see below for CPT Codes)

In addition to treatment sessions, it is our practice to charge on a prorated basis for other professional services you may require, such as: formal evaluations and report writing, attendance at meetings or consultations with other professionals which you may have authorized; preparation of records or treatment summaries; telephone conversations which last longer than 5 minutes; or the time required to perform any other service which you may request of us.
Services are by appointment only. Because your appointment time is reserved only for you, it is important that you do not miss any appointments. There is a 48-hour cancellation policy for existing patients which requires that you cancel your appointment 48 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment to avoid being charged for the full session. If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. For new patients, we require 3 business days notice for cancellation in order to be considered for rescheduling.
