Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

Do you Take Insurance?

I do not take insurance, medicare or medicaid. I do provide receipts with information required from insurance companies in order to receive out of network benefits. I am considered an out of network provider, meaning I am not on insurance panels. You should contact your insurance to determine your out of network benefits to determine if you will be reimbursed for the cost of treatment. You may choose to ask about preauthorization requirements and CPT codes. I typically bill CPT code 90837.

I am able to take a limited number of adolescent clients.

HOW LONG DO YOU EXPECT TREATMENT TO LAST?

The length of time someone is in treatment can vary based on many factors. Typically, clients see me anywhere from 15-20 sessions.

What is the difference between a one hour evaluation and a two hour evaluation?

In the first hour of an evaluation I collect information on current problem, history, past treatment, medical history, family history and interests. The second hour of the evaluation is a targeted assessment of your presenting difficulty. I typically do standardized assessment to determine severity and impact of the problem during the second evaluation. Some clients choose to do the second hour of the evaluation on a different date from the first because it increases the ability to get reimbursement (if offered by your insurance). The only difference between the evaluations is time. Regardless of whether you choose a one hour to two hour evaluation, I do all the components of the evaluation. Sometimes, it is just spread out over 2 sessions.
