Insurance and Fees

The only insurance I take is BC/BS Master Medical, and other plans that have the patient pay me at the time of service. The patient then submits the statement I give to them for direct reimbursement from their insurance company.

  • The standard fee per full 50 minute session is $175, based upon attending a minimum of 2 times per week.
  • The fee can be somewhat lower for patients committed to and in need of intensive psychoanalytically informed psychotherapy and/or psychoanalysis. 
  • Currently accepting new patients.
