Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it - Tori Ames​

Working Together

I realize that seeking support is a big decision.  I want to make this process as straight forward as possible for you. I am currently in network with the following health insurance companies:

 

  • Aetna

  • Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield

  • Beacon Health Network

  • Cigna

  • Connecticare

  • Husky Healthcare

  • Medicaid

  • Optum

  • Oxford

  • United Behavioral Health

  • United Health Care

  • Value Options

 

I also accept out-of-pocket or out-of-network clients at this time. We can discuss your individual insurance coverage during our consultation phone call. 

 

 

TO GET STARTED:

 

  1. Call (860) 327-5790 for a free consultation phone call. We will discuss your needs and determine if I am a proper fit for you. We will also discuss insurance and/or payment options.

  2. Download the intake packet from below and complete the necessary paperwork prior to your initial appointment. If you have limited access to the internet or have difficulties using the internet, the intake packet can be made available to you prior to your appointment. Bring the completed packet to the appointment with you.     

  3. On the day of your appointment, you can expect to park in the spacious parking lot to the right of the building. When you enter the main entrance, you will walk down a hallway and into the main lobby.  You can enter the stairwell through the green double doors to your left, or take a right and walk down the hall and enter the stairwell through the door at the end of the hall.  My office, suite 1223, is located on the second floor.  Visual directions can be found here for your convenience. Please note the office is not handicapped accessible.

  4. Please wait in the private waiting room.  I will come and greet you promptly at the time of your scheduled appointment.

  5. The first appointment will take between 60 to 90 minutes. During the intake, an evaluation of your current needs, recent history, and early history will be completed. You should also be evaluating your own comfort level of working with me. If we both decide it is a good fit and would like to continue with therapy, we will collaborate on treatment plan goals and schedule follow-up appointments.
