The practice will directly file claims with your insurance company. We currently accept Cigna/Evernorth, United Healthcare/ Optum as well as CareFirst/BlueCross and BlueShield/Anthem. We also accept EAP benefits through Compsych and UnitedHealth/Optum.
We process any payments for copays and deductibles within 1-10 business days. We are able to look up your copay/ and deductible information with your member ID and birth date before your session.
For other insurance plans, we are happy to provide you with a super bill detailing our appointment information to submit for out-of-network benefits.
If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA), you may pay for your sessions with your FSA or HSA card.
With out-of-network benefits, members may be entitled to payment for covered expenses if they use doctors and other health care professionals outside of a health plan network. We will provide you with coded receipts called Superbills for your payment of the full session fee. Superbills are receipts/invoices which you may submit directly to your insurance company for reimbursement. Superbills include all codes and information insurance companies need to determine reimbursement. You'll be able to submit your Superbill directly to your insurance company for reimbursement via your insurance company's online patient portal.

If you don't have insurance or chose not to use insurance, you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your any non-emergency items or services will cost. This is called a Good Faith Estimate (GFE)
Make sure your health care provider gives you a GFE in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item, if you do not plan to submit your receipts (or “super bill”) to your insurance company for reimbursement.
You can ask for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
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, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call this office (or your provider, if different) after you have scheduled an appointment or before your next scheduled appointment.
We want to see you. We make special time on our schedules to meet with you. We kindly ask that if you have to cancel your appointment to please give your therapist 48 hours notice. If you do not provide at least 48 hours’ notice of a canceled appointment, or if you fail to show for a scheduled appointment, you will be charged a $120 cancellation fee.
WHAT ISSUES CAN BE ADDRESSED IN THERAPY?
Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn't worth living.
More than just a bout of the blues, depression isn't a weakness and you can't simply "snap out" of it. Depression may require long-term treatment. But don't get discouraged. Most people with depression feel better with medication, psychotherapy or both.
Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However, people with anxiety disorders frequently have intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Often, anxiety disorders involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear or terror that reach a peak within minutes (panic attacks).
These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger and can last a long time. You may avoid places or situations to prevent these feelings. Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood.
If you’ve experienced an extremely stressful or disturbing event that’s left you feeling helpless and emotionally out of control, you may have been traumatized. Psychological trauma can leave you struggling with upsetting emotions, memories, and anxiety that won’t go away. It can also leave you feeling numb, disconnected, and unable to trust other people. When bad things happen, it can take a while to get over the pain and feel safe again.
Surviving an affair
Surviving an affair aint easy. It might be the hardest thing you and your partner go through. Healing from an affair is not automatic, it will take time BUT IT CAN HAPPEN. Many couples do survive an affair and many couples say their relationship ends up even stronger in the end. I nonjudgmentally and empathetically work with you and your partner to heal your relationship using an evidence based model for couples who have experienced an affair. Your relationship can get better.
Parenting skills/ Coparenting with the Ex
We all want to be great parents, but unfortunately there is no manual. You want to guide your children to help them make the most of their potential, and you want them to grow up to be contributing members of society. I teach you how to parent or
co-parent with an ex to accomplish this goal.
Deciding if we should stay together
If you're in a relationship and can’t decide whether you should break up or stay together I empathize with you-- been there. It can be confusing and heart breaking, and it can leave you sitting on the fence and going back and forth for days, weeks, or even years. Don’t spend years trying to get out. I work with you to clarify your true wants and desires in a relationship. After weighing the facts of your relationship you become clear on the decision you need to make for yourself.
