Message to clients

Hi, I'm Dr. Ozkarahan, and I'm a Board-Certified Psychiatrist treating adults in the 20s through 40s age range who live in New York State or New Jersey. Please refer to my video for a quick summary of who I am and what I offer. As an out-of-network psychiatrist, patients pay my full session fee up front and submit my superbills to their insurance company to get reimbursed.

I have also created, written, and narrated an online meditation program containing stunning, specially-composed music. This is now offered as a free tool for my patients to supplement our work together!

For details about my fees and to schedule a consultation, please message me directly on Zencare. I'm quick & responsive and will give a clear explanation of this whole process. I'll also provide a handout with specific questions to ask your insurance to find out about your reimbursement rates. I look forward to hearing from you!
