About My Practice
My sunny, warm, cozy, and inviting office is centrally located in Midtown West, minutes from Columbus Circle and the Time Warner Center. It is a quick walk from the 1, A, C, B, D, N, R and Q trains, and easy to commute to and from Penn Station and Port Authority. There is a quiet waiting room and the office itself has a spectacular view down Broadway.
The Process of Scheduling an Initial Appointment
If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, I recommend scheduling a phone consultation first. You may do so by using my online calendar on this website or you may email me directly. The phone consultation is free and will last for approximately 10-15 minutes. This is an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have about me or my practice, and it allows me to get a brief sense of what you would like to work on in therapy. During the phone consultation, I will also assess whether or not it seems like I am a good fit for you as a psychologist, or whether or not you may be better served by someone else. We will also discuss practical matters, such as scheduling and fees.
The Initial Consultation
The first appointment is a consultation that will last between 45-60 minutes. The consultation is an opportunity to get to know who you are, and to learn about your history and the history of whatever is bringing you in for the appointment. By the end of the consultation we will discuss what the next appropriate course of action is, whether or not it seems like I am the right therapist for you, and address any questions that may have arisen during the consultation. For additional information on the initial appointment please visit the FAQ page.
Payment is due at the time of each session and can be paid by credit card, cash, or check. What my current fee is can be discussed during the free phone consultation.
I am not an in-network insurance provider; however, I work with many clients who have out-of-network benefits as part of their insurance plan. For clients who choose to use their out-of-network benefits, I provide invoices that contain all of the information they will need to submit their claim to their insurance company for reimbursement. Each insurance plan reimburses differently, so it is a good idea to call and ask your insurance company what they reimburse for out-of-network outpatient psychotherapy.
