Your first session is a 2-3 hours and includes paperwork and a full psychiatric evaluation. It is charged at $362.25. There is a 3.5% reduction for cash. During this appointment you will be completing a lot of paperwork that will allow me to pinpoint the issues more expediently. This is a full psychiatric evaluation during which the causes of your suffering will be teased out – what is biological and what is psychological – and further, what can be done about these causes. You will be given a receipt ("super bill") which will contain all necessary information for you to file a claim for out of network benefits with your insurance company. Before you make an appointment, please check with you insurance company to find out what you benefits are for out of network mental health services.

The follow up appointment take between 1/2-2 hours. They are usually cost between $207-258.75. These session may include medication management, psychotherapy, and/or spiritual coaching.

We can provide you with a receipt to bill your insurance by filing an out-of-network claim form. You could then download a claim form from your insurance website, fill out with the numbers on the receipt, and send into your insurance. Each insurance program is different. Most do refund a portion of your cost or apply it to your deductible.
I cannot treat you if you have medicare or medicaid. Government sponsored insurance would require me to bill insurance directly. This requires time, expertise, patience, and paperwork for which I do not have the time nor inclination. Government subsidized insurance prohibits me from taking direct payment from you. Please consider CTRC, which accepts all insurances, at 607-797-0680 or Aspect Psychiatric Services.
With rare exception, I do not accept individuals below the age of 16.
There is no charge for cancellations made with 24 hours notice. For later cancellations, $50 will be deducted. If you do not cancel and do not attend your appointment, you are liable for the full session charge.
