FAQ

What states are you licensed to practice in? 
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in New Jersey and Florida. I offer services for clients in both states.

 

Do you take insurance? 

I am an in-network provider with Medicare and United Healthcare (Optum). I am also an out-of-network provider. For those who plan to use their out-of-network benefits, you will be provided a document called a Superbill on the first of each month. You can present this document to your insurance company for reimbursement. It is important you follow-up with your insurance company to determine the percentage they will reimburse. 

What are some questions to ask my insurance company? 

  • Do I have out-of-network mental health coverage? 

  • Does my insurance cover online therapy, telemental health, telehealth, or video-conferencing services?

  • Do I have a separate yearly deductible for mental health or is it included in my medical deductible?

  • Do I have coverage to see a New Jersey Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who is out of network?

  • What is my deductible?

  • How many sessions per year am I eligible for with coverage?

  • What is the cap in the amount of money expended per year?

 

Do you accept credit cards? 

Yes. 

Do you prescribe medications?

I do not prescribe medications. In the state of New Jersey, psychiatric medications must be prescribed by a licensed physician. I work closely with psychiatrists to make sure you are, when necessary, properly medicated.  

Do you provide family therapy? 
I do not. However, I will often convene family meetings for specific and limited purposes. I have a referral network of skilled family therapists and will make referrals as necessary.
