Will you prescribe medication?
In New York State, psychologists cannot prescribe medication. This is the most essential difference between a psychologist (me), and a psychiatrist (not me). If we determine jointly that medication may be needed in addition to treatment, I will provide you with a referral to a psychiatrist.
How long does a typical course of treatment last? Is treatment indefinite?
A typical course of treatment involves about 4 months of weekly therapy, with a taper down period afterwards to ensure you maintain the gains you will make in treatment. My ultimate goal is to get you out of my office and back into your life, fully functioning, as soon as I can. Some patients do benefit from ongoing treatment and continue to return for further appointments on an as-needed-basis.
Do you accept insurance?
I am unaffiliated with insurance panels. If your plan covers out-of-network providers, I will provide you with receipts, invoices, and superbills for services provided if you plan to submit a claim. Please let me know in advance of your session if this is necessary..
Can I book online? Do you accept walk-ins?
Please use the widget at the following link (FORTHCOMING) to make an appointment. If you cannot make a Saturday or Sunday appointment regularly, I do offer video sessions after an initial in-person intake. I do not accept walk-ins at this time. Please call or email ahead to schedule an intake.
What are your hours?
I have office hours on Saturday and Sunday, and am available generally between 10 AM and 7 PM.
How long does a session last? How often do I come in?
Most sessions are 50 minutes, and most patients generally have one session a week. However, for more intensive treatment plans, we might meet for two hours at a time or sometimes longer. It depends on your specific clinical needs, and would be discussed more fully after the intake evaluation
Will you work with my psychiatrist and other care providers?
Yes. I will work with all your care providers. I coordinate with psychiatrists, primary care physicians, neurologists, nurse practitioners, and even OB-GYNs on an as-needed basis. My mission is to provide behind-the-scenes care in addition to the work we do in the office.
Fees and Pricing
Finances should not be a barrier to mental health treatment. I offer sliding scale and payment plans available as needed on a case-by-case basis. We will jointly discuss payment options and rates prior to your appointment to address your individual needs.
