Hello and thanks for contacting me!

My counseling services are provided to adults, age 18 and over.

My general clinical hours are as follows:

Mondays and Wednesdays: 11:00-3:00- Video Telehealth
Tuesdays and Thursdays: 11:00-9:00- In-office & Telehealth options
Saturdays: 9:00-12:00- In-office & Telehealth options may vary

Check with me to see if I have any current openings via this inquiry form. Please be advised that, for ethical purposes, I am generally not willing to work with individuals who have a close family member or friend already receiving services from me.

My session fee is: $100, due at time of appointment.
I accept the following insurances: United Healthcare, Cigna, Univera, MagnaCare, Independent Health and BlueCross BlueShield of WNY.
I am not in-network with Medicaid or Medicare; therefore, I am unable to accept related insurance plans.

For those seeking therapy using out-of-network insurance coverage I require payment at time of session but will provide you with appropriate documentation for you to submit to your insurance provider in order to request reimbursement.

I also have availability, though limited, to clients via Open Path Psychotherapy Collective. If you have a current Open Path account, I encourage you to contact me through their website.

Please contact your insurance company to verify your mental health benefits.

Complete the following and click 'Submit' button at bottom of page. Personal, financial account information will not be asked of you on this form.

If you plan on using insurance I can check eligibility in advance
Must be within the following office hours: Mondays & Tuesdays from 9 am to 8 pm (out of office from 2-4 pm) / Thursdays from 9 am to 1 pm / Saturdays from 10 am to 12 pm

Please note that these are preferred appointment times and not an actual scheduled appointment.

After you submit this form, I will email you with a response as to whether or not I currently have openings, and if so, will then provide a link to my practice's client portal where you will be instructed to schedule an appointment and complete initial intake documentation. I request all initial intake and financial information be completed prior to our first appointment together.

Your first few appointments with me would be for the purpose of assessment and information gathering, identifying your therapy goals, determining the appropriateness of my services in relation to your needs and providing you with any referrals if necessary. Once deemed that my services could reasonably address your presenting issue, and we both agree on continuing the therapeutic process, we will continue your therapy from there.

Thank you.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact me.
