Appointments are available Monday through Friday, with evening hours on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

2. How do I make an appointment?

Please call (631) 473-0996.

3. What kind of insurance do you accept and for what service?

I accept insurance for individual psychotherapy. I participate in the following plans: Medicare, the Empire Plan for New York State Employees, the Suffolk County Employees Mental Health Plan, MDNY and United Behavioral Health.

Insurance is not accepted for marital/couples counseling as it is not a covered service under any health insurance plan. I will not falsely claim I am treating one person for a psychiatric disorder when I am really providing couples therapy.

All payment is expected at the time of service.

Appointments are generally weekly and range from forty-five minutes to an hour and an hour and a half.
