My four-year postdoctoral Certificate in Psychoanalysis is from the Westchester Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (1993). Psychotherapy speaks the language of feelings. All of us struggle with painful feelings: fear and insecurity, sadness and grief, shame and guilt, conflict and confusion. All of us suffer traumatic experiences, large or small. I try to listen, attentively and non-judgmentally, to your feelings and experiences. Together, we work to increase self-understanding, understanding of others, and personal growth."

An out-of-network Therapist in Westport has not agreed to any set rate with your insurer. Your plan may require higher co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance for out-of-network care and you may need to pay the difference between your insurer's allowed amount and what the Therapist charges.

The costs for a Westport out-of-network Therapist also depend on your type of plan:

In a Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO, or Exclusive Provider Network, or EPO, you generally have to pay the full cost of any out-of-network care.

In a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Point-of-Service (POS) plan, you will usually have to pay a higher deductible and or a higher co-pay plus a higher percentage co-insurance plus, the difference between the allowed amount and your provider's actual rate.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Westport are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Westport you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Westport and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Westport or family therapy in Westport.
