RATES AND INSURANCE

Please contact for rates.
I do not participate on any insurance panels at this time. There are several reasons for this. The first and most important is for your protection. To be reimbursed for services insurance companies and managed care organizations typically require a formal diagnosis. A diagnosis can linger. If services are approved by your insurance, limits are often placed regarding how many visits one can receive. Limits are also placed regarding what techniques a provider can use and generally do not allow providers to practice with the freedom necessary to provide individualized, customized care for each client’s unique presentation and varying needs. The second reason is for privacy. While I keep strict anonymity and confidentiality regarding your participation in therapy, I cannot control another entities’ actions or sharing of information.
24 hours advance notice is required for canceling a scheduled appointment. You will be required to pay the full cost of the treatment as booked when advance notice is not provided. Missed sessions without 24 hour notice must be paid at or before the next scheduled session.
