I believe that everyone should have access to mental health services. I work to keep my fees competitive, but reasonable. Payments are due at the time of each appointment, unless another arrangement has been made. I accept several major health insurance plans. Contact me to inquire about healthcare plans that I am currently affiliated with.
Please be aware that most insurance agreements require you to authorize me to provide a clinical diagnosis, and sometimes additional clinical information such as treatment plans or summaries, or in rare cases, a copy of the entire record. This information will become part of the insurance company’s files, and in all likelihood, some of it will be computerized. It is important to remember that you always have the right to pay for counseling services yourself if you prefer to avoid involving your insurer.
