Intake Forms

Please be sure to fill out the following forms and bring them to your first session. This will help ease you into therapy, and allow as much time as possible to be spent focusing on you.


We accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment. Payment is  collected during the session.


Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

We recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Do I have out-of-network benefits to cover outpatient psychotherapy services?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
  • What is the percentage of reimbursement for code 90834 (45-minute session)?
  • What is the percentage of reimbursment for code 90791?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full rate of the session.
