This practice no longer accepts health insurance. Therefore, you have total confidentiality, can determine the type, length, and content of your treatment, and are not required to have a medical diagnosis for your record (insurance panels require a billable psychiatric diagnostic code on all patients using medical health insurance, even children and relationship therapy).

This is especially important with certain sensitive careers that we serve at this practice, including: mental health professionals, physicians, attorneys, pharmacists, politicians, pilots, active military, children, adolescents, custody disputes, etc.

Please see the sliding scale fees scales for details on sliding fee rates.

Cash, Apple Pay, Venmo and Google Pay are accepted and may be more secure forms of payment than PayPal.
