10 Plaza Street East, Suite C1
Brooklyn, NY 11238
How long does each session last?
Sessions typically last between 45 and 50 minutes.
Do you accept insurance?
The majority of the the clients I work with are self-pay clients who choose to pay the fee on their own and not go through insurance for various reasons ranging from privacy concerns related to health insurance to a desire to work with the therapist best suited to their needs without the influence of outside parties. In all cases it is important to remember that by investing in therapy you are investing in a happier and healthier self.
I do currently accept Cigna, United Health Care, Oxford and Optum Behavioral Health Network. However, my services are covered by many insurance plans that offer out-of-network benefits. If you have out-of-network benefits, I am happy to help you with deciding if using those benefits is a good options for you. I am able to provide documentation necessary to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
How do I know if I can use my insurance?
You can contact your insurance company to check your coverage. It is important that you get answers to the following questions:
Do I have mental health "out-of-network" insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per years does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Is pre-approval required from my primary care physician before receiving services?
What are your fees?
Please inquire about my up to date fees. Sessions typically range from between $150 and $200 depending on the service. It is best to contact me for the most accurate information. I also offer free 15 minute phone consultations.
Do you offer sliding scale rates?
I understand that finances can be a major barrier to seeking out therapy services and I put aside a limited number of spots for clients requiring a sliding scale fee. Please feel free to reach out to me to discuss your specific situation
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept most forms of payment including Cash, Check, and all Major Credit Cards.
All payments are due on the date of service unless we have agreed ahead of time on another arrangement.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations must be made at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled session. If you are unable to provide at least 48 hour notice, you will be charged a cancellation fee of up to the price of the missed session.
What are the types of sessions you offer?
In addition to the traditional face to face sessions I do also offer tele-mental health sessions including phone and video.
