Cash, check and all major credit cards accepted for payment. Digital payments can be made via PayPal, Google, and Venmo. To make a payment with your credit card, click Pay Now. You’ll be taken to a secure website where you can enter your credit card information.
Advance payments will be refunded in full for appointments cancelled 24 hours before the start of the appointment.
After using any of the above services to pay your fees, that service may send you receipts for payment by email or text message. These receipts will include our business name, and would indicate that you have paid for a therapy session. It is possible the receipt may be sent automatically, without first asking if you wish to receive the receipt. We are unable to control this in many cases, and we may not be able to control which email address or phone number your receipt is sent to. Please consider which e-mail address or phone numbers you are using and who may have access to them.
Clients are required to cancel at least 24 hours before the start of their appointment. Clients who cancel within 24 hours of the appointment or do not show up as scheduled are required to pay the full session fee.
We do not work with insurance companies directly, but our services can be billed to most insurance carriers as an out-of-network provider. This means that we are not in the insurance company’s network of providers, but depending on your plan, you may be able to get reimbursed for our services. You can call your insurance carrier to find out what your out-of-network benefits are, or you can call us and provide us information to check on your behalf. Specifically, you should find out:
- Whether you have out-of-network benefits. If you do, this means your insurance will pay for you to see a therapist who is not in their network of healthcare providers.
- Whether you have a deductible. If you do, this means you will have to pay out of pocket until you have paid the amount of the deductible, and only then will your insurance carrier pay for your visits. (For example, if you deductible is $1000, you will have to pay our fee of $100 for 10 sessions before your insurance will start paying.)
- Whether there is a limit to how many sessions your insurance carrier will pay for.
- Whether you will have to pay a co-pay (a fixed amount every time you visit, for example, $20) or co-insurance (a percentage of the fee for every visit, for example, 40%).
- Whether you need a referral from your primary care physician.
Please note that in all cases payment is due at the end of your session. If you wish to seek reimbursement from your insurance company we will be happy to provide an invoice (sometimes known as a “superbill”) you can send them so that they can reimburse you. Please feel free to contact us if you need further assistance on this topic.

The past couple of posts have been addressing parents of adult children and discussing the family conflicts that are not uncommon in such relationships. Continuing on the theme, I’d like to touch on the issue of strained relationships between adult siblings. This is often a cause of great pain for older parents who feel their […]
In our last post I offered some ideas on how parents can go about reconnecting with adult children who have become distant and disconnected. In this post I’d like to talk a bit more about what is often behind that distance. Why have your kids decided to distance themselves? Obviously, there are many possible answers […]
You spent decades of your life raising your children. You poured your love, time, effort, and money into giving them the best life you could. Sure, you made mistakes along the way, but you tried your best. You only wanted good things for them. So why don’t your kids want to talk to you? Why […]
