Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. For example, PPO Insurance covers a % of fee, at the "out-of-network provider" rate. 
My rates are within what the insurance companies consider "reasonable and customary." 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 therapy session?

                Is approval required from my primary care physician?


Cash, check and all major credit cards accepted for payment.
