Policies & Rates
Rate: I charge $250 for a 45 minute session for clients.
Reduced Fee Appointments: For clients who do not have insurance or do not wish to use out-of-network benefits, I offer some lower fee appointment slots during the day. At this time, these slots are filled and I’ll update my website when they become available.
Insurance: Some insurance plans offer out-of-network benefits, which allow you to choose a provider of your choice, rather than one on their network. Please call your insurance provider to see if they offer out-of-network benefits that would reimburse you for using my services.
Cancellation policy: An appointment time is set aside specifically for you and as a result, I require a 48 hour notice for cancelling or rescheduling counseling sessions. A $150 fee will be charged to you for late cancellations or missed appointments.
Payment: I accept cash, check, and credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, Diner‘s Club, and JCB). These cards can include Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flex Spending Accounts (FSA).

Questions To Ask Your Insurance Company

- How much is my deductible, if I have one? (some plans have different deductibles for in-network providers and out-of-network providers, so please clarify based on your insurance)
- How much can I expect to get back for sessions provided in NYC (zipcode: 10001) with the following CPT codes, when the rate is $250?
- 90837 (60 minute individual therapy session)
