I am a contracted provider with Optum/United Behavioral Health.  Please call your insurance company to verify your coverage and consider the following questions:

  • Do you have mental health benefits?
  • What is your deductible and has it been met for this calendar year?
  • Are you responsible for a co-payment for each session?
  • How many sessions per calendar year are covered by your plan?
  • Do you need prior authorization from the insurance company or your primary care doctor?
  • Do you need ongoing authorization if you exceed a specified number of sessions? 


Those who have not met their deductible, have another insurance plan, or who do not have insurance will be responsible for funding the entire cost of treatment.  Please see “Treatment Consent” under Forms for my fee schedule.  I do provide an itemized bill for those who wish to apply for reimbursement from their own PPO plans. 


Cash and check are accepted as payment. Payment is due at the end of each session.
