Insurance I Don't Take Insurance or Medicare. 
I do not participate directly with any insurance companies; I am an out-of-network provider. I can issue you an invoice, or "superbill," with the appropriate code for insurance submission, per request. 

Services may be covered in part by your health insurance. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions: 

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits? 
  • Am I covered for an out-of-network provider? 
  • 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?
  • Are "telehealth" visits (phone and video/Zoom sessions) covered in addition to face-to-face visits? Not all insurance companies cover for this, so it is important to ask. It is important to note that some insurance providers which had been honoring telehealth during COVID may be changing their policies and may reimburse less or not at all for telehealth as COVID restrictions ease. It is your responsibility to find out what your policy covers and any changes they make along the way that affect your reimbursement.  

Good Faith Estimate Notice 

Notice to clients and prospective clients: 

  • Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.  
  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. 
  • You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment.   
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.  
  • For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, or how to dispute a bill, see your Estimate, or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
