Where is your office?
My office is at 26 West 9th Street in Manhattan,West Village NYC, on a tree-lined street between 5th and 6th Avenues, near Washington Square Park and the historic Jefferson Market Library. It’s less than a five-minute walk from several bus stops, subway stations, and the PATH, very convenient; for detailed directions, please click here.
What are your hours?
I conduct 45-minute sessions on Mondays through Fridays. If you call me, I’ll get back to you in as timely a manner as possible; evening calls may not be returned until the next day.
What are your fees? What if I have to cancel?
My fees are in line with those of other private practitioners in Manhattan, and are payable by check or cash at time of treatment. Cancelled sessions need to be paid for, although I will make every effort to reschedule within the same week, if that’s possible.
Will my insurance cover my treatment costs?
I provide treatment on an out-of-network basis, which is often covered in part by insurance companies; you should contact your insurer to ask if you have coverage. I can also provide monthly statements of your therapy charges for you to submit directly along with your claims.
Is treatment tax-deductible?
Costs for therapy and transportation to and from sessions often qualify as tax deductions. Contact your tax advisor or the IRS.
Is patient information confidential?
A sense of security is essential to successful therapy. Because I am independent from managed health-care organizations and insurance companies, I’m not required to routinely divulge sensitive information about my patients.
