Services

We are going through an individual and collective trauma at this moment due to the Covid-19 pandemic that presents a paradox requiring us to find support and resist isolation in a moment where we also need to intentionally isolate ourselves to keep others safe. Therapy can help provide a space to understand these feelings and experiences and offer more care and compassion to ourselves to make way for more empathy, presence and compassion for others. When you give it to yourself, you have more to give to someone else. 

 

When we are aware of what we are feeling and experiencing, we are less likely to act it out on others or turn it on ourselves in destructive ways that do not serve us. It has power over us when we do not have this awareness. We've got to name it to tame it. Naming helps us normalize it, put it in perspective and check our expectations. 

If you are in need of support, I currently have openings and I am  seeing clients online until I am able to return to the office. Please reach out to set up an appointment using the contact form at the bottom of this page.

INSURANCE

I am an out-of-network provider. 

I am currently offering a sliding scale for any health care, food service, post office or any workers that have sacrificed their health to keep others safe during this pandemic

I can provide monthly invoices for you to submit to your insurance company for “out-of-network” reimbursement.

To find out if your insurance accepts out-of-network provider coverage, here are some tips and suggestions on the questions to ask to clarify your coverage when you call your insurance carrier.

Information you will need when calling the insurance company:

  • Full name

  • Insurance ID#

  • DOB (Date of Birth)

  • Address on file with insurance company

  • CPT Codes – This is the coding insurance companies use to recognize the services rendered by the provider. Some insurance companies only reimburse for 45 minute appointments while others will reimburse for the full 60 minutes. I have listed all possible codes used below:

    • 90827 – 60 minute psychotherapy session

    • 90834 – 45 minute psychotherapy session

    • 90847 – 60 minute family psychotherapy, patient present

      • This is the code for couples’s and family therapy
         

You can confirm what your benefits are, what the deductible is, and whether there are any limits on behavioral health.

IMPORTANT NOTE about GHI. So far, GHI is the only provider I’ve encountered who reimburses ONLY for therapy performed by a psychiatrist, psychologist or LCSW-R for out-of-network benefits. I only have the designation of LCSW, since the R designation is only used by GHI. This is confusing, because all other insurance companies will cover all the licenses. GHI is very restrictive and sometimes the people on the phone do not give this information. It is possible that other carriers will become more restrictive in coming months, so it is always good to check and see what your current reimbursement policy is.
