The most effective treatments for anxiety disorders are cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and medication management (typically SSRI/antidepressants), with both being as equally effective. For those interested in trying “talk therapy” before medication, a treatment plan of CBT is recommended. I am conservative about recommending a medication evaluation, however some need the benefits of both CBT and medication. In addition, studies show that using both types of treatment together lowers your chance of relapse than if choosing medication alone. Deciding to use medication as a treatment option is a serious decision and can only be dispensed by a physician (medical doctor).
I offer a complimentary 15 minute phone consultation for all new referrals. The cost of my initial evaluation is $130 and each subsequent session costs $100. I accept cash or checks as well as Cigna insurance as payment for services. I am an out of network provider with all other insurances.
