Fees and Payment
I charge $180 for 45-50 minute sessions. Payment is due at the time of the session unless prior alternative arrangements have been made.
I am currently in network for Seton Health Plan, and will bill this insurance company
on your behalf. At the time of service SHP insureds are expected to pay only their copay and their deductible.
If you wish to use other insurance for your mental health treatment, I will provide you with a receipt to file with your insurance company. Please note that I have opted out of Medicare.
I work with people seeking help with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, gender issues, relationship problems, multicultural concerns, spiritual issues and life transitions (relocation, divorce, empty nest, employment change, aging, death and dying).
While ameliorating the symptoms of many of these issues can be addressed in short term therapy, I also offer more in-depth psychoanalytic treatment to address longstanding complex and faulty beliefs and the behavior and relationship patterns that result from those beliefs.
I offer couples therapy to individuals in both traditional and nontraditional unions. Couples may use therapy at different points in their relationship: starting out, in the midst of it, or when one or both participants decide to end it. Conscientious couples' work can remedy some problems at the start and positively change problems in communication and power struggles throughout a relationship.
I offer clinical case consultation and peer consultation
for mental health professionals seeking these services.
