Payment is handled on a per session basis. Sessions are 50 minutes long and scheduled on a weekly or bi-weekly basis depending on your needs. Payments and/or co-pays are collected on the day of the session.
I am currently able to bill the following insurance plans:
Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO/EPO/Indemnity
Neighborhood Health Plan
Fallon Community Health Plan
Tufts Health Plan
Many people find they prefer to pay for their own psychotherapy for a variety of reasons. Paying for your own therapy creates a sense of ownership of the process. It also allows more flexibility regarding the number, frequency and length of sessions. Finally, private payment means there will be absolutely no disclosure of personal information to any third party, a degree of privacy not possible when billing through health insurance. If you prefer to pay out-of-pocket for your treatment but are uncertain about the affordability, I encourage you to contact me and discuss your situation. Reduced rates are available for students and individuals with financial limitations.
