Now accepting patients with out-of-network benefits! Visit and contact us to get started!


A: Yes, therapy is confidential. As a licensed psychotherapist, I'm bound by law (HIPAA ) to keep all information you share with me confidential, with a few exceptions, such as if you are a danger to yourself or others. We'll review the confidentiality agreement at the start of our first session.

A: The cost of therapy varies depending on a number of factors, including your insurance coverage, the length of each session, and the type of therapy you're receiving. I offer a free initial 15 min. consultation to discuss your needs and determine the cost of therapy. We are in-network with the following insurances: Aetna, Cigna, BCBS, United Healthcare, Oxford, Oscar, and Northwell Direct - Tier 1 and are also accepting private pay and patients with out-of-network benefits.

A: You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate ” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

● You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

● Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

● If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

● Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit or call 800-985-3059.

"There are two main differences and one big similarity between interns and licensed therapists.The first difference is that interns haven’t completed all the requirements for licensure. They may still be in school, or they may have graduated, but it takes time to meet all the criteria required by most licensing boards. Therefore, they’re less experienced in doing therapy than their licensed colleagues. But experience is just one tool in a therapist’s toolkit, and arguably not the most important one.

The second difference is that internships come to an end, and you might not be able to continue seeing your therapist once his or her internship is over. When matched with an intern, always ask how long they’ll be there, and what your options will be if you’re still working together when they leave. Of course, your work with a licensed therapist can also come to an end if they leave their place of employment, move away, or retire. So that difference, too, may be moot.

Here’s the big similarity: Both interns and licensed therapists are human beings. As such, both groups are identical in their inherent ability to do good therapy. Every therapist, whether just staring out, close to retirement, or somewhere in between, has a unique life story and set of personal qualities that they bring to their relationship with you.

An intern with self-awareness, integrity, and deep compassion will do better work than a fully-licensed colleague with more experience who doesn’t have those qualities.

When choosing a therapist, look first at the human being, not the paper credentials. Ask yourself, “How do I feel when I’m with this person?” If you feel respected, understood, and valued, you’re in good company—licensed or not."

A: I am currently an in-network provider with Aetna, Cigna, Oscar, Oxford, United, BCBS, and Northwell Direct.
For all other insurances, you may have out-of-network benefits, which means that they will support the cost of our services.
I have partnered with Thrizer, a payment application that handles this process automatically for you so you can pay only what you truly owe for our sessions.
We will first check to confirm you have out-of-network benefits. If so, I will use Thrizer so that you are only charged your co-payment for the appointment.
How it works:

  1. I will email you a link to set up your Thrizer account‍
  2. Set up your Thrizer account by adding your insurance information and connecting a payment method‍
  3. Review your out-of-network benefits and estimated co-pay to clarify any questions you have
  4. I will charge you via Thrizer for our appointments
  5. If you choose to pay in full and wait for reimbursement instead, you can track claims from your Thrizer account. Insurance reimbursements, when issued, are deposited directly to your bank account.

If you have out-of-network benefits, your insurance will typically reimburse you for 60%-80% of the cost of each session.
That means, after your deductible is met, you can expect to pay upfront for your session fee and then be reimbursed for 60-80% of that session fee. 
Most clients end up paying $20-$90 dollars per session after their deductible is met. You can also use your FSA/HSA to offset the cost of therapy.
In some cases, you may only be responsible for the out of pocket cost (check out Thrizer).

We are currently only accepting the following EAPs through Spring Health and Samata Health. Please check with your employer regarding your EAP benefits.

A: I offer several types of therapy, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, and person-centered therapy. We'll work together to determine which approach is best for your unique needs and goals.

A: Psychotherapy is a form of treatment that helps people cope with mental health issues, emotional difficulties, and other life challenges. It involves talking with a licensed therapist in a safe, confidential setting to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

A: If you're struggling with emotions, behaviors, or relationships that are causing distress or affecting your quality of life, therapy can be a helpful tool. Some common signs that you might benefit from therapy include feeling overwhelmed, experiencing significant changes in mood or appetite, struggling with substance use, or having trouble functioning in daily life.

A: In your first therapy session, we'll talk about your reasons for seeking therapy, your goals, and any concerns you have. I'll ask questions to get to know you better and help us develop a plan for moving forward. You can also ask me any questions you have about the therapy process.
