Therapists In-Network with United Healthcare in New York

United Healthcare is a common health insurance in New York, and individuals who have United Healthcare may wish to find therapists who are in-network with their health insurance.

When you see a therapist who is in-network with United Healthcare, each session you’ll pay only a copay, which typically ranges from $0-$75/session. Depending on your plan, you may first need to pay the provider’s full session fee until you meet your annual deductible, which is the total amount of medical expenses required before your health insurance starts to cover costs. Some plans cover the cost of in-network therapy sessions before the deductible is met; to verify whether your specific plan covers therapy sessions and at what rate, visit the United Healthcare website or call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask about your coverage for outpatient mental health.

Beginning therapy is a brave and beautiful step. My goal as a therapist is to help my patients utilize their existing internal strengths to navigate difficulties in their lives in ways that promote self-compassion, acceptance, and positive change. My clients have diverse lived experiences and backgrounds. As such, I approach my practice with an intersectional perspective, understanding there is no “one size fits all” approach for successful therapy. I enjoy working with a diverse group of patients and have particular interests in depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, relationship issues, and low self-esteem. The relationships that are borne from therapy are all unique and valuable. I strive to provide a safe space where my clients can reach the vulnerability necessary to heal from emotional pain and ultimately achieve their best self. I received my BA in Psychology from Macalester College and MSW from Columbia University.

Between work, school, parenting, general life obligations, and now, a global pandemic, life can be stressful and overwhelming. Friends and family are all going through their own stressors, and it can be easy to feel unseen, unheard, and invalidated. You deserve a safe space to feel supported where you can speak freely, be validated, process your thoughts and trauma, and grow toward the person you want to be. Therapy is just that place, and I’m so glad you have taken the first step of your healing journey by reading this page.

As a therapist, it’s my role to support you, your child, your adolescent, or your family in healing and growing. We will work together to decide what you want to gain from therapy, and I will provide you with concrete tips and skills to help you achieve your goals. As the client, you are the expert of your own life. Each session, you will provide me with individual puzzle pieces. It is my job to help you put the pieces together to understand the larger picture; this includes your past, your present, and creating a path to attaining the future of your dreams.

Therapy can be a powerful force for good, so long as we never lose sight of the paramountcy of human connection and avoid retreating into narcissism. So many of us desire to feel more connected, less anxious, and less alienated, but we simply do not know how to achieve this reality. This is especially true for some of us who have experienced attachment disruptions, or even more severe forms of trauma. Or, perhaps we see a path forward, but that path vanishes suddenly without warning and is replaced by malaise and renewed uncertainty, or, even worse, despair. Our work together will focus on developing that path in such a way where it will endure even in the face of adversity and the intrusion of the past into the present.

My work is empowering clients by helping you learn about yourself, witnessing your progress and guiding you to navigate life challenges. My approach is to create a customized treatment plan for each client as I believe not all clients will benefit from the same approach. Together we will establish goals at the start of our initial interaction to identify the progression throughout each session.

Seeking therapy can be an intimidating and overwhelming process. From acknowledging that you would like more support to searching for the right therapist for you, it takes time, effort, and courage to face your challenges and risk vulnerability. That is why I aim to create a warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental space where you experience trust, safety, and comfort to bring your authentic self into the room. To be vulnerable and open as your true self without fear of judgment is to move towards freedom and expansion.

I especially enjoy working with BIPOC individuals, couples, and families to explore issues of race, sex, gender, culture, and other identity that may be impacting your relationships, work, or overall wellbeing. As a family and couple therapist, I believe problems reside between people and not within them. We will approach your challenges from a relational and systems perspective, putting into consideration the context, environments, and systems we all reside in. You are the center of your story and expert on your life. We will build upon and utilize your innate skills and strengths to better understand and work through your challenges.
