Some availability of a sliding fee scale in certain circumstances.

I offer a free initial 30 minute phone, video or in-person consultation. Contact Me.

Payment is due at the time of your appointment. I gladly accept Visa, MasterCard, cash and personal checks. If appointment cancellation is necessary please provide 24 hours notice or a 50% charge will be incurred for your missed appointment.

Confidentiality is strictly enforced to protect the client’s privacy. According to law and professional ethics, exceptions to confidentiality exist if there is clear and present danger that someone’s life may be at risk or if there is suspected child abuse or neglect or abuse of any vulnerable population. I am a mandatory reporter by law. You may also want to consider that if insurance is used to pay for your session that they will have access to a certain amount of this information. Although it may be sometimes financially necessary to use insurance to pay for therapy please realize that all insurance claims require a medical diagnosis which will become part of your record. Also, the insurance company may decide how many sessions are appropriate for your treatment regardless of what you and I might think are needed. And finally, your private information, even under new privacy policies, may need to be shared for insurance reimbursement.

If I currently do not participate in your specific insurance plan, I welcome you to discuss my sliding scale of fees. Many insurance companies have “Out-of-Network” benefits, and after a deductible is met, sessions are often covered at 50 or even 80 percent. This is specific to each plan and it is important for you to know.
