Rates and Insurance



I do not directly accept insurance as I value the sanctity of the confidential relationship that I share with my patients. This will be breached if I adhere to insurance companies’ mandates requiring me to regularly report patients’ most private information and diagnoses.

If you have health insurance with out-of-network coverage, a large percentage of the fee can be reimbursed directly to you by your insurance provider. Typical reimbursement rates are between 60-80% for out-of-network services. I am happy to provide you with a monthly statement for submission to your insurance provider. With the regularly changing laws regarding coverage of mental health services, you may have more insurance coverage for out-of-network benefits than you realize. Please check with your plan.



Personal checks, cash and all major credit cards are accepted for payment.
