Do you take insurance?

I no longer accept insurance. Many people choose not to use their insurance because insurance companies often require a lot of personal health information. This includes a clinical diagnosis that meets a severity level of the insurance company's determination, insurance companies can request your records at any time, and insurance companies determine how many sessions they will cover and the length of your sessions.

If you would like to utilize your health insurance please check to see if you have Out-of-Network benefits. I am happy to provide you with a receipt called a Super Bill and your insurance company will reimburse you at their out of network rate. Many people have robust out of network coverage. Please check with your insurance provider.
