  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session? 
  • Is there a co-payment? Or Co-insurance payment (listed as a percentage)?
  • Is a referral required from my primary care physician? (Florida Health Care Plans requires a referral from your primary doctor)

Have you considered:

 Employee Assistance Programs?

---- Check with your or spouse's employer or HR Department to see if the employer has contracted with an "EAP". EAP will cover counseling, at no charge, for a specified number of sessions with me. Call the EAP number and ask for an authorization. It is all confidential. No information about going to counseling is revealed to your employer.

That is all it takes. Very simple, and you won't be charged one cent by the therapist.



Cash, HSA/FSA, check;  major credit cards accepted for payment only by special request.


Cancellation Policy
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and/or  you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay $100.00 before another session is scheduled.
