I have been trained as a generalist and can provide therapy for a wide variety of issues and concerns. My clinical specialties include anxiety and mood disorders, trauma, abuse, self-esteem, body image, identity, women's issues, LGBT issues, and emotion regulation.
Some examples of the other types of issues I work with include:
Dissociative Disorders (including Dissociative Identity
Eating Concerns (i.e., emotional eating, binge eating)
Fears and Phobias
Grief and Loss
Interpersonal Concerns and Skills
Life Transitions (i.e., parenthood, marriage, divorce, career, geographical relocation etc.)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Self harm (i.e, cutting)
Women’s Issues (including issues related to infertility,
pregnancy, child birth, and post partum)
If you don’t see your issue listed here, that doesn’t mean it’s not something I can help you address. Please email me to discuss whether I would be a good fit for what you need.
Insurance and Fees
I accept Blue Cross and Blue Shield PPO and Blue Cross and Blue Shield Medicare Advantage PPO insurance. If you would like to use your BCBS insurance, please contact your representative to verify coverage details (i.e., copayment amount, coinsurance, deductible etc.) and inform me prior to your first appointment. I will bill BCBS directly for services provided.
I am currently considered an out of network provider for all insurance carriers except BCBS PPO and BCBS Medicare Advantage PPO. If you do not have BCBS coverage and would like to use another type of insurance, I will provide you with paperwork that you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. Insurance companies vary in what they will reimburse for an out of network provider, but my understanding is that they usually reimburse at a rate of 50-80%. I recommend contacting your insurance provider to verify coverage and reimbursement rates for an out of network psychologist before you start treatment. For example: “Psychotherapy with Patient and/or Family Member” (CPT Code 90837) by an “Out of Network Provider.” If you use that terminology, they should be able to provide specific information regarding out of network reimbursement.
For private pay or out of network insurance, my usual fee for an initial diagnostic evaluation or a 50 minute therapy session is $200.00. If you feel you cannot afford this rate, please talk to me about this as I am sometimes able to offer a reduced fee for special circumstances for a limited number of clients.
