Getting started

Your first step is to write to me for an appointment using my contact form.  (Phone calls get a delayed reply since I have limited time to return them between sessions.) If you’d like to ask questions about my approach to your particular situation, we can do that on my secure practice portal or in a scheduled call. If I think someone else would be a better fit, I’ll make an appropriate referral.

If we decide to meet, I will send you practice forms through my portal so that we can devote our time in session to your relationship. Completing these is necessary in order to hold your appointment.

The next step is a full session in my office, where you can speak at leisure about the situation and feelings that have led you to seek my help, and where you can ask questions about how I would help you reach your goals. In that session — usually 60 or 90 minutes — I’ll make some observations and recommendations, and you can decide whether you would like to make another appointment.

Payment is at the end of each session with cash, major credit card, or HSA card. Skype/phone sessions and couple intensives are billed ahead of time by credit card. If you plan to file for out-of-network reimbursement, I provide monthly receipts you can submit to your insurer.

Cancellation policy:  I ask for 48 hours’ notice should you need to cancel or you will be charged for the missed session.  Email me at the message box at this link; or call/text me at 914-941-6478.


  • I do not accept in-network insurance.  If your health insurance policy provides for out-of-network coverage, I provide a coded receipt so that you may receive partial reimbursement from your insurer, usually from 40 to 70 percent after meeting your overall medical deductible.
  • If you have a Health Savings Account (HSA), I provide a receipt for reimbursement.
