Fees and Policies


Please contact me regarding my current fee. Payment is due at each meeting, payable by cash or check.

I am not on any health insurance panels. This means I am considered an “out of network” provider. Upon patient request, a monthly billing statement can be provided for submission to health insurance companies. Health plans vary in terms of how much and what kind of mental health treatment they cover.

After-Hours Emergencies

Phone messages are retrieved on weekdays from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Every effort is made to return calls on the same business day. If you experience an after-hours psychiatric emergency, you should go to the emergency room in your area or call 911 for immediate assistance.

Cancellation Policy

There is a 48 hour cancellation policy. If you cancel a session within 48 hours of the scheduled appointment, you will be charged the full amount for the session.

The Use of Email

Email can be used for the purpose of scheduling and changing appointments. The same 48 hour change/cancellation policy applies using this means of communication. Email will not be used to discuss clinical diagnoses, assessments, or interventions. Please do not share any confidential information or report a psychiatric crisis by email.

Risks and Benefits

There are potential risks and benefits to psychological services. Sessions often involve discussing difficult or challenging aspects of your life, a process which may lead to you to experience uncomfortable feelings. These services have been shown to have benefit, but there is no guarantee of what you will gain.
