I currently do not participate in any insurance plans and don’t accept payment from insurance companies. I am a fee for service provider. However, if you have out-of-network coverage for psychotherapy I will either submit insurance claim forms for you or provide you with necessary forms for you to submit on your own for possible reimbursement.

My Practice and Treatment Philosophy

I have been in private practice in New York City for over 20 years. Having lived most of my personal and all of my professional life in Manhattan, I understand very well the professional, financial and social challenges of life here.

I believe that effective therapy brings about growth and change and it occurs in the atmosphere of safety, trust, connection and collaboration. Your emotional safety is my first priority, our sessions are completely confidential and you will be able to really trust me with your deepest self.

I am trained in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, EMDR and Emotionally Focused couples therapy. I also have a solid experience for over 10 years treating Substance Abuse.

Counseling and Therapy Sessions

Typically appointments are 45 minutes long. I can accommodate longer sessions when needed or appropriate. I work with clients all over the world and while mostly work in person in my office, I provide therapy on the phone and via SKYPE when necessary.

Scheduling an Appointment

In order to schedule an appointment, after agreeing on the date and time, I will need to have a credit card on file with my office. The credit card is necessary prior to making initial appointment and is a back up payment method in case of late cancellations or  unpaid balances.

We need the following credit card information:

  • Credit card number
  • Expiration date
  • CVV code
  • Billing zip code for the card

This information can be provided via email or we can arrange a phone call. Credit card information is stored in a system which is secure and cannot be obtained by anyone else.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation policy is 48 BUSINESS HOURS. All appointments have to be cancelled within that time. There are no exceptions. I always provide SKYPE, FACETIME or ZOOM sessions for those who cannot physically get to my office for various reasons. In case of a Couples Therapy, one person can use the session time to avoid the cancellation fee. It is totally understood that some cancellations cannot be avoided.

CONTACT INFORMATION

I can be contacted by either phone or email. My office is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan; one block from Grand Central Station. I schedule appointments throughout the day. I make all efforts to accommodate my clients’ busy schedules.
