As a Fee-For-Service provider, I do not accept insurance. However, I am considered an Out-of-Network provider. Please verify with your insurance company whether Out-of-Network providers are covered. There are some Medical Flex Spending and Health Savings Vehicle accounts that may allow reimbursement for therapy sessions. Payment for each session is due at time of service. All charges incurred are the responsibility of the client. See Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Cancellation Policy
If you do not keep your scheduled appointment, and you do not give a 24-hour notification to your therapist, you will be charged the full session rate for the missed appointment.
