Contact & Info
No website can adequately represent how any therapist works nor who that therapist is. The best way for you to get an idea of what treatment with me is like and how it might help you is by meeting with me in person. I invite you to contact me to set up an initial consultation, where we can talk in detail about your presenting problems, discuss options and recommendations for addressing them, as well as get a feel for one another.
You can contact me at:

I am located just north of Washington Square Park in downtown Manhattan at:
26 West 9th Street
New York, NY 10011
My fee for psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and supervision is $200 for each 45-minute session. I sometimes offer a sliding scale based on need and availability. Fees for consultation services are determined after an initial assessment.
I am an ‘in-network provider’ only for the student insurance plan of New York University (Consolidated Health Plan or CHP). If you are an NYU student and want to have a consultation with me, please let me know which plan you have (Basic vs. Comprehensive) so that I can tell you what your copayment amount will be.
If you have health insurance for which I am not in-network, you may still be eligible for reimbursement from your insurance company for a portion of your psychotherapy expenses. You should find out if you have mental health benefits that cover psychotherapy with an out-of-network psychologist like me. In such cases, you are responsible for paying your bill in full up front and then seeking reimbursement from your insurance company. My bills are ‘insurance-friendly,’ which means that they contain all the codes and information your insurance company will require when you submit your claim. I suggest you contact your insurance provider and find out:
- Do I have mental health benefits?
- What kind of coverage does my plan have for psychologists outside my network?
- At what rate would I be reimbursed for work with an out-of-network psychologist?
- What is my deductible for out-of-network benefits? Has it been met?
- How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
- Is there a limit on how much my plan will pay per session? Is this determination based on diagnosis?
- Is preauthorization required?
