Fees are representative of weekday appointment times; there may be an additional charge for late evening or Saturday appointment times.
Psychotherapy sessions typically occur on a weekly to twice weekly basis; however frequency will be determined based on a client’s needs.
Medication only clients typically need to come in more often when starting or changing a medication. We require a frequency of visits that is specific to the complexity of your treatment and severity of your illness. We are happy to discuss anticipated frequency with you prior to your initial appointment.
Our providers are in network with Cigna, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, and United Healthcare. We also provide care on a cash-pay basis. We are in process of becoming in network providers with several other insurance companies as well.
- Most insurance companies will provide partial or full coverage for services rendered by a psychiatrist.
- Psychotherapy and medication treatment IS an allowable expense for your Health Spending Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending
- Account (FSA). Many of our clients pay for their services out of pocket and then submit a claim to their insurance provider or
- HAS/FSA to receive reimbursement for out-of-network coverage. Most plans offer about 60-80% reimbursement, but check with your insurance company for your specific benefits.
You may want to ask the following questions of your insurance provider prior to your first visit:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy or medication session?
- How much will I be reimbursed if I pay out of pocket?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
- How do I request reimbursement?

If indications of child abuse or planned bodily harm to oneself or to others come to light in the course of treatment, we are legally bound to report these to the appropriate authorities.
