  • How do I know if you're the right therapist for me?
    It’s about chemistry and you can’t be sure if I’m the right therapist for you until we meet to see if we click! If my background and approach seem appropriate for your needs, you can schedule a consultation. If talking with me makes you hopeful that you can feel better, then we’re probably a good match.
  • How long will therapy take?
    That depends on what you want to accomplish. Some struggles are simpler to work through and some are more complex. Therapy can last from a couple of months to several years and many factors play into that timeframe.
  • Do you see clients in-person or virtually?
    I currently offer both options to provide the access best suited to your needs. We can hold our sessions virtually from anywhere in Florida or New York, or if you live near Boca Raton, I have a limited amount of office hours available for sessions.
  • Who do you work with?
    My focus is helping adults and teens with their family relationships and overall well-being. I don’t provide family or couples therapy at this time.
  • If I am seeking therapy for my teen but they don’t want to go, what should I do?
    I can meet your teen and see if we can connect. However, if your teen continues to refuse therapy, then I recommend you come. You can experience personal healing by working on your parenting and your feelings surrounding your teen. Often when the parent works on their own struggles, it has a positive effect on the child and improves the relationship regardless of the child not attending therapy too.
  • Do you take insurance?
    I have a limited amount of in-network insurance slots available with Aetna. I currently do not have any insurance based spots available but you can always reach out and ask to be put on a waitlist. I also provide a monthly superbill with all the information you may need for out-of-network insurance reimbursement. Most insurance plans will reimburse a portion of your therapy sessions which vary according to your plan. You can find our more about your mental health benefits including any deductible and reimbursement rates by contacting the customer service at your health insurance company. For more information please contact me.
  • If I am seeking therapy for my teen, will I be involved?
    Yes and no. Legally, you are entitled to information about your teen’s therapy sessions, but practically, sharing information without your teen’s permission goes against best practice and doesn’t provide your child the safe space they need for effective therapy. My policy is to maintain confidentiality unless your teen specifically allows me to share, but I encourage parents to share whatever they think is helpful for me to know. Rest assured, though: I would inform you of any safety concerns regarding your child and take every step needed to keep them safe in case of any risk of self- or other-induced harm.
  • What is your rate?
    My rate is $250 per session.
  • How long are the sessions?
    Sessions are 45 minutes.
  • How often should I meet with you?
    I meet my clients either once or twice a week. Meeting on a consistent weekly basis helps us make faster, more effective progress in dealing with your concerns. Once we’ve seen improvement and you feel better, we may decide to adjust our therapy schedule for less frequent check-ins.
  • When do you see clients?
    I generally see clients during my office hours between 9 AM and 6:30 PM Monday through Thursday.
  • What if I need psychiatric medication or I’m already taking psychiatric medication?
    We’d determine together if a psychiatry referral is appropriate. I am happy to refer you to a psychiatrist or collaborate with your current psychiatrist to best meet your needs.
  • Is what I share confidential?
    Absolutely! Trust and privacy are integral to the therapist-client relationship and an important element in healing. Our sessions are confidential by law and I abide by that with the utmost seriousness. That said, some exceptions to the law and my confidentiality apply, such as in the case of suspected abuse or the likelihood of immediate physical harm to you, another individual, or the general public.
