Sessions are by appointment and the therapeutic “hour” is actually 45 to 50 minutes long. Depending on my schedule, longer sessions may be arranged. I require 48 hours notice of a cancellation, and offer a substitute time during the same week or the following week, if our schedules permit. In the rare event they do not, you are responsible to pay for the time.
I inform potential patients of my fee during the first telephone contact. If anyone requests a sliding scale, I advise them that we would need to discuss this in detail, in person, so that I can understand the financial picture better, and judge whether I am able to accommodate them. I am rarely able to slide to a lower fee for couples; but I have a sliding scale for patients requiring multiple sessions per week, if their financial status warrants this. I sometimes am able to slide for an individual coming on a once–weekly basis too, if required.
I am accepted by most insurance companies as an Out-of Network Provider, OON. Please check your benefits to ensure that you are covered. Fees are paid in full at the time of the session, and I provide a monthly professional statement for you to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement.
