Therapist's note

I'm an “out-of-network” provider which allows me to provide treatment that will best meet your specific needs rather than adhering to what your insurance company believes is suitable for you. Most insurance companies provide partial reimbursement for out-of-network therapy and the majority of my clients pay between $50 to $75 per appointment after meeting their out-of-network deductible. Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have and I'm happy to explain further. We also accept HSA or FSA cards.
