I believe that therapy is an investment of time and money in yourself. It is important that you choose the right therapist for you to take this journey with. To make sure I am a good fit, I offer a free phone consultation to see if what I can offer is right for you. 



I am currently paneled with:



Empire Blue Cross Blue Sheild



If you don't see your insurance listed above, I am willing to work with you as an out-of-network provider. This means, if your insurance accepts out of network providers, you can submit a claim - that I will create for you - and they will pay a percentage of the cost for treatment.


To understand more about what this means for you, please contact me and we can set up a consultation appointment.


Private Pay or Out of Network


My fee for a standard 60-minute therapy session is $145. The initial session is $185. A play therapy session for children run for 30 minutes or 45 minutes and the fee is lower at $95 or $110 respectively. 


I am open to considering a sliding scale.


Payment is due at the time of service in cash, check, or credit card.
