Other General FAQ
What is your fee?
The initial consultation is typically 60 minutes and the fee is $450. All subsequent sessions (therapy and/or medication management) are the same flat fee of $350. The fee is always collected up front before the session begins.
How does payment work?
I accept credit card, debit card, HSA or FSA card, or cash. Your card is swiped before the session begins. I will provide you with a receipt and an invoice for each session. There is NO ADDITIONAL FEE for brief telephone calls, prescription refills or sessions involving family or significant others. However, controlled substances are not refilled without coming in for a session.
Do you take insurance?
I do not accept any insurance but many patients collect a partial or full reimbursement if they have out-of-network coverage in their insurance. If you have this benefit, you can submit the session invoices to your insurance company and I can provide specific advice on how to do this.
Why not take insurance?
By not relying on insurance for payment I am able to provide a higher level of care to my patients in terms of the duration and frequency of appointments, flexibility of scheduling, and independence in shaping the treatment plan, as well as maximum privacy and confidentiality with your personal health information.
