My practice is exclusively virtual, for folks in the states of New York and Connecticut. Telehealth sessions take place on Simple Practice, a secure HIPAA compliant platform.
No, I am considered an out-of-network provider. Superbills are provided if you’d like to file a claim for potential reimbursement, which depends on your insurance policy’s out-of-network benefits. Insurance can be super confusing, so I’m happy to help with navigating and understanding your benefits. If you have questions surrounding why I am, or what it means to be, an out-of-network provider, I’m happy to discuss further.
Please contact me directly to discuss rates.
Get comfy in a private space. If possible, it can be useful to take your session in a different area from where you work. Have water and tissues at hand, maybe even a notebook if there’s something we discuss that you feel compelled to jot down. I also strongly encourage you to put your phone on airplane mode, so you can stay as present as possible.
No, I do not prescribe medication. If, after working together for some time, we decide that medication might be appropriate, I collaborate with some wonderful psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners that I can refer you to and collaborate with on your treatment.
A superbill is an invoice that can be used to file a claim for potential insurance reimbursement. At the end of each month, you’ll receive a document that has my provider information, the dates and rates of services, a code that tells your insurance company what type of services you received, and a diagnostic code that tells your insurance company what you received services for. In order to provide a superbill, I have to offer a diagnostic impression, which can and should be an open conversation in our sessions.
If you’re unable to make it to a session, you must cancel at least 24 hours in advance. If you cancel with less than 24-hours notice, you will be responsible for the full cost of the session. I understand life/emergencies happen and am as flexible as possible to accommodate for this.
Finding a therapist you really feel strongly connected with is the foundation of any good therapy. It typically takes about 3 sessions to determine if it’s a good match.
