    Payment and Insurance


    I accept cash, check and all major credit cards(including HSA cards) as forms of payment.

    Health Insurance

    I accept many health insurance plans.  I accept credit card, cash, and check.  I also will assist with the needed paperwork for out-of-network health insurance claims.

    Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your insurance to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

    I currently accept and am in-network with the following insurance:


    -Blue Shield of Northeastern New York (BSNENY)

    -Blue Cross Blue Shield (Excellus)


    -Medicaid and Medicare (ONLY Commerical plans through CDPHP, Excellus, and BSNENY)

    I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider BEFORE your appointment to help determine your benefits:

    • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
    • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
    • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
    • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

    Fees for Services 

    Initial Intake Session:  245.00

    Individual Therapy Session(60-minute):  195.00

    Couples Therapy Session (60-minute):  195.00

    Good Faith Estimate

    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 medicalitems and services.

    • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the totalexpected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, andhospital 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 youchoose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item orservice.
    • 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 or the dispute process, visit or call 800- 985-3059.
