I am often able to reply to emails more quickly than calls. Please remember that email is not guaranteed to be a secure means of communication. I suggest that you not use email to ask questions that detail your personal health information. If you do choose to use email for communication, you are authorizing me to respond via email as well.
Session Length: Individual sessions with or without family members present are 60 minutes. Couple and family sessions are 90 minutes.
Fees: $200 individual session. $300 couples and families. The initial intake appointment fee is $300. Payment is due at each session with check or cash.
Billing: Payment is due at each session. If you wish to submit a reimbursement request, I will provide an itemized superbill. If you have a billing question please talk to me.
Insurance and Managed Care: I do not participate in any insurance programs, and I am thus considered “out of network” for billing purposes. Many insurance companies will, after you meet a deductible, reimburse for a percentage of the cost of psychotherapy (usually 50-80%) for out-of-network providers. For out-of-network billing, I will provide you an itemized receipt that you can submit for reimbursement.

Telephone: My business line will direct you to my voicemail, and I do my best to return calls within 24 hours.
Emergencies: Call me and say in your message that it is URGENT. If the situation warrants immediate help please go directly to your local emergency room.
Cancellations: If you need to cancel an appointment, please let me know as soon as possible but no later than 24 hours in advance in order to avoid payment for the session. Missed sessions without a 24 hour cancellation will be considered payable prior to our next session.
Forms: Please feel free to download, fill out, and bring along, as this allows more time to meet in our first session.
