During 2024, all counseling sessions will be conducted remotely as "telehealth services" using Google Meet.

You may view the Telehealth Consent Form here.


Sessions are scheduled for one hour.

We spend about 50-55 minutes together doing counseling and psychotherapy.

The remaining time is used for administrative and record-keeping purposes, such as scheduling, collecting payment, writing clinical notes on our work, generating documentation for your health insurance benefits, etc.

I'm in-network with Cigna, Horizon BCBS NJ, and Aetna

If I am in-network with your health insurance plan, the cost of our sessions depends on your plan's benefits (e.g., $20 copayment per session, 10% coinsurance per session, etc.).

If I am out-of-network with your health insurance plan or you wish to pay out-of-pocket (i.e., you don't want to use health insurance), sessions cost $200.

Questions to Ask Your Health Insurance

This is a useful document that includes my practice's identifying information, which you can use to call your health insurance to verify whether I am in-network or out-of-network with your plan and what your benefits are. Please strongly consider using this document and calling your health insurance plan! It will greatly clarify your benefits and the cost of counseling.

My goal is transparency and clarity

Although I hope the above makes things easily understood, if you are still left with questions, please know that I am more than happy to discuss all of these details during a consultation. Navigating health insurance benefits or payment for counseling services in general can be confusing, and I am happy to clarify this with you! Counseling for Change also recognizes individuals in need who struggle financially and a sliding scale rate is available in a limited number of specific cases.

Free 30-minute Consultation for New Clients 

I offer a free, 30-minute session for new clients for the purpose of getting to know each other and determining whether we are a good fit. Finding the right counselor can be a sensitive and challenging process. This free consult is my way of taking the pressure out of the experience. Please fill out the Appointment Request Form and I will reach out to you to schedule an appointment.
