Answers to some of my patients’ most frequently asked questions.


Why is my practice ‘out of network’ with health insurers?

As an ‘out of network’ provider, I can offer a flexible and independent approach to psychiatric treatment without limitations on the number or types of treatments necessary for your well-being. However, you can still use your insurance to cover any prescribed medications.

If your insurance plan includes an ‘out of network’ benefit, I will provide the necessary documentation for you to seek reimbursement for sessions.

Additionally, you can use your Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for treatment.

What’s the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor (MD) who has completed medical school and a four-year residency in psychiatry, gaining expertise in both psychiatric medications and psychotherapy. Psychologists, on the other hand, hold a PhD or PsyD, are not medical doctors, and cannot prescribe medications.
