Money!  Bigger Agh!​!!!

Your health and well-being are invaluable to you, and they matter to me.  Investing your time and money to achieve optimal health and well-being will greatly enhance your quality of life and increase your productivity.  At the same time, your investment must be affordable for you.  To this end, I strive to keep my fees affordable and to maximize your ability to use your health insurance benefits to your greatest advantage.

I participate with a limited number of insurers.  You may also use me as an out-of-network provider.  Upon request, I can provide you with documentation to claim reimbursement for out-of-network expenses.

For in-network services, you must provide all benefits information and documentation required for me to submit claims quickly and easily.  Such information and documentation includes your health insurance card, any required pre-authorizations, your deductible, your co-pay, any limits on your mental health sessions, etc.  If there is a change or a gap in your coverage, you are responsible for any fees incurred that are not covered by your insurance. 

I provide services to a limited number of low-income clients through participation with Medicaid.  In limited circumstances, I may slide my fees to promote or continue your access to affordable therapeutic services with me.  I also provide pro bono services to qualified applicants through Montgomery County's Pro Bono Counseling Project.

Fees/co-payments must be paid at each session unless other arrangements are made.  You may pay by cash, check, or credit card.

Please feel free to contact me at 240-483-3873 to obtain specific fee information, to ascertain insurance participation, or to discuss your specific circumstances. It is my hope that every person who wants mental health services can obtain them affordably.  To that end, I will strive to accommodate your financial circumstances or assist you in finding another provider if I am unable to do so.


paperwork!  agh!!

I hate paperwork.  It often seems so pointless and redundant.  Even so, paperwork in health care is intended to protect you.  Below are forms that are necessary to begin therapy services with you.  Please read the Client Services Agreement and the Notice of Privacy Practices  prior to your first appointment.  You should print, fill out and sign the New Client Information Form, the Acknowledgement and Consent for Treatment, and the Insurance and Financial Summary and Agreement and bring them with you to your first appointment along with your insurance card.  This will allow us to spend more time together discussing your needs, rather than focusing on paperwork.  If you have any questions about anything in these materials, we will review and discuss them when we meet.
