Insurance Information

I am an in-network provider for Aetna. For all other plans, I am an out-of-network provider. Many insurance plans cover up to 60% -80% of out-of-network costs, but each plan is slightly different. I suggest calling your insurance plan (the number on the back of your insurance card) to clarify your benefits prior to our first meeting.

The billing procedure codes I typically use for outpatient mental health services in the office setting include 90791 for the initial evaluation and 90834 and 90837 for psychotherapy.

I am happy to submit insurance claims on your behalf or provide you with the paperwork to submit the claims yourself. 


If you wish to pay privately or using out of network benefits, I would be happy to discuss my rates with you. 

Questions to ask your insurance provider before our initial session

  • Do I have a deductible? How much of it has been met to date?

  • What is my copay?

  • What is my co-insurance (if applicable)?

  • What is my out of pocket maximum?

  • Do I need a referral for outpatient psychotherapy?

  • What are my out-of-network benefits for outpatient psychotherapy?

  • Please verify that you have teletherapy benefits.

Cancellation policy

I maintain a 24 hour cancellation policy.


I collect copays or session fees at the end of each session via credit card processor.
