How to set up an appointment
Scheduling an appointment can be done by calling (312) 320-4837. If you do not reach me directly over the phone, you can leave a message on my voice mail. All messages are confidential. Typically, I return the call within 24 hours, Monday through Friday. During our first phone conversation, I will be available to discuss the reason for your call and you can ask me any questions you might have about my practice or approach to therapy. We will also discuss fees and possible times for us to meet. My office is conveniently located in Downtown Chicago.
My services are contracted with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO. If you have this insurance, I am generally considered an in-network provider. However, certain plans have their mental health benefits managed by a third-party. If this is the case, I will not be considered an in-network provider. BEFORE YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT, YOU SHOULD CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE PROVIDER TO VERIFY THAT I AM COVERED UNDER YOUR BENEFITS.
If you are covered under a different plan that provides coverage for out-of-network providers, I can assist you by providing all the necessary information on your receipt so that you may file it with your insurance provider. In such instances, you will be reimbursed at your insurance provider’s rates.
During our first appointment, we will discuss the reason for your visit and what you might want to receive out of our work together. By the end of our first session, I can offer some impressions about which treatment approach might be most helpful in meeting your treatment goals. We can discuss any questions you have about my initial thoughts on how to best help you in therapy. If you feel that you would prefer to see someone else or receive some other form of therapy, I will be happy to help you set up a meeting with another mental health professional.
