Professional Counseling for Career and Life Transitions
Cancellations/Reschedules: Please notify me at least 24 hours in advance by email, voicemail, or cancel your appointment through the Schedule an Appointment page if you will be unable to keep your scheduled appointment or you will be responsible for my full fee.
Payment: I accept cash, checks, PayPal, credit cards, and payment from several insurance and EAP companies. Please pay for Online Counseling sessions or your copay below.
Please check with your insurance provider prior to your appointment to verify that I am on your insurance or EAP panel. Please check with your insurance to find out if you need an authorization to access your mental or behavioral health benefits. Clients coming through their EAP (Employee Assistance Plan) require an authorization number from their EAP.
A Note on using Insurance: When insurance is utilized for psychotherapy services, patients should be aware of the limits of confidentiality. Typically, insurance companies only require the following information: psychiatric diagnosis and dates of service. More and more managed care companies require additional information such as family abuse history, alcohol and drug history, treatment goals/interventions, the details of the treatment sessions, and on some occasions, treatment notes. In addition, providers are now required to sign waivers that allow the payors to audit client records. What this means is, if you utilize your insurance benefits for psychotherapy services, you may not have the extent of confidentiality you would otherwise expect.
