Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
At this present time, I do not take insurance and am an out of network provider. However, I want to help support you utilize your insurance benefits and submit your therapy invoices to be reimbursed. I do this by offering access to an easy-to-use app called reimbursify that processes your out-of-network claims for you. At the end of each month, I will provide you a monthly receipt of all of your sessions that you will submit to reimbursify, so you can be reimbursed for your sessions based on your health insurance benefits.
How do I know if my insurance plan will reimburse my therapy sessions?
The first step is to call your insurance provider and ask them if they provide out of network coverage for psychotherapy sessions, ask what your deductible is and how much you will need to pay after your deductible is met. There are also other additional details that I will be able to provide you during your free consultation.
What is your fee?
I offer a free 15-20 minute consultation. Individual therapy sessions are $175. Couple's therapy sessions are $200. I offer a few sliding scale therapy slots based on financial need and am open to finding a rate that works for both of us.
How long is a session?
Individual psychotherapy sessions are 50 minutes. Couple's therapy sessions are 60 minutes.
Where are you located?
I do have an office located at 26 Court Street in Brooklyn, New York which is easily accessible to the Borough Hall train stop (2/3/4/5), the Court Street train stop (R), and the Jay St-Metro Tech train stop (A/C/F). However, at this time I am only offering remote sessions.
Do you offer online therapy sessions?
Yes, during this time, I am only offering teletherapy sessions via video platform and am expecting to offer in person sessions again in the future.
Good Faith Estimate
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage of their ability to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure you save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit cms.gov/nosurprise.
Frequency of Sessions
Most clients attend therapy weekly, some will seek a second appointment in the same week, and some after 6 months of working together will decide to do every other week. I trust you to know what you need and will work with you to find what works best.
As stated above, my price per session is $175 for individuals and $200 for couples. It is not possible to know in advance how many sessions a person may need as each person’s needs are unique and individualized. For an estimate, if you attend therapy weekly, fees for one month (4 visits) would be $700 for individuals and $800 for couples.
