My private practice is limited to working with individuals with prolonged grief disorder (PGD). PGD is diagnosed if after the death of a human loved one at least 6-12 months prior, your grief process still interferes in certain ways with your day-to-day functioning.
I recommend completing the Center for Prolonged Grief's Brief Grief Self-assessment quiz to find out if you may be experiencing Prolonged Grief Disorder before reaching out to me.

I am not a participating provider of any healthcare insurance plan. However, if you have a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Point of Service (POS) medical health plan, you may be eligible for partial reimbursement after meeting your out of network deductible. The specific amount of your out of network deductible as well as the percentage of partial reimbursement you may be entitled to depends on your specific medical plan. Partial reimbursement is based on a usual and customary fee (UCF).
It is possible that the rate of reimbursement from your PPO or POS medical plan will substantially reduce your net out of pocket costs.
I recommend calling the member services center for your healthcare provider and finding out more about your out-of-network coverage before scheduling your video consultation.
Here are the questions you will need to ask to obtain the information needed to calculate your net out of pocket costs:
- What is my out of network deductible?
- What is the percentage of reimbursement for out of network 60-minutes individual psychotherapy (CPT code 90837)?
- Are telebehavioral health (video/online counseling sessions) with my out of network mental health provider covered?
- For the purposes of my out of network deductible, when does my year begin-January 1 or another date?
- What is my annual out of pocket maximum?
- Can electronic claims be submitted by my out-of-network mental health provider? If so, what is the Payer ID number for the submission of electronic claims?
If you plan to submit claims to your insurance company for reimbursement, I will give you a statement each month that you will be able to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement of payments made. Also, as a courtesy, I will submit electronic claims on your behalf if your insurance company allows this.
