Getting Started

Please take a moment to review the following information


Treatment begins on a weekly basis, and may eventually transition to biweekly sessions. The length of treatment varies from 12 weeks to much longer, depending on a client’s needs and goals. Every therapeutic relationship is unique and there is always an open and honest collaboration regarding goals, frequency and duration of treatment. The traditional billing time is for 45 minute sessions (50 minute for couples and families).


As a therapist in Westchester, New York and Connecticut, my role is to guide you as you take steps towards positive life changes. It starts with a simple, free 15 minute confidential consultation to assess if I can offer the help that is most appropriate for you. Together we will work to determine a plan of action that best suits your needs.


I accept only AETNA and associated insurance policies. However, I see many of my clients as out-of-network provider. I can provide all the necessary paperwork for clients to be reimbursed by their insurance provider. The majority of clients receive some form of reimbursement from their insurance. Please try to call your insurance provider to determine the details of your coverage prior to your consultation.


These will be discussed during the initial free consultation appointment.


I accept credit card payment or cash transfers via Zelle or Venmo. Payment is expected at the time of service.

Cancellation Policy

If you do not attend your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.

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 both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.

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 expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, 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.
