"We take care of the future best by taking care of the present now."
-- Jon Kabat-Zinn
I value confidentiality and believe that your therapy should be guided by you, rather than your insurance company. Therefore, I do not participate in managed care plans.
If you would like to use your insurance benefits, I am happy to provide documentation to facilitate this process. You should check with your insurance company prior to our first meting to understand your benefits. You will want to ask your insurance company the following questions:
If you are interested in pursuing work with me and you do not have insurance, would prefer not to use your insurance for reasons of confidentiality, and/or I am not able to accept/bill your insurance, I am available for sliding scale services.
I accept cash, checks and some credit cards. I expect payment at the time of services.
If you are interested in contacting me to discuss getting started or to discuss payment options please contact me via telephone or using the contact information provided on my website. Be aware that I cannot guarantee the privacy of online communication.
Please note, email is not a confidential form of communication, nor is it an appropriate medium for urgent or emergency messages. Email or phone contact with Dr. Rachel Barbanel-Fried does not constitute a psychotherapeutic relationship. In case of emergency, call your local emergency response services.
