Allegra Parks

Psychotherapist | LCSW | MS.Ed

I am a licensed psychotherapist with Masters Degrees in both Social Work and Early Adolescent Education from NYU and Bank Street College, respectively, and am a graduate of the clinical fellowship program at Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy in NYC. Since 2003 I have had the honor of helping adults and adolescents who suffer from depressive and anxiety disorders, trauma, familial & relationship conflict, grief & loss, school challenges, and various other difficulties.

I am inherently interested in people and the ways that we navigate life and work to create meaningful and enjoyable lives, often in the face of deep pain and doubt. I continue to be awed by the commitment to growth my clients have shown as we work together, session by session.

 

Session Fee

The standard fee is $150 per 45 minute individual session and $200 per 45 minute couples session. I offer a sliding scale option which can be discussed at the initial session. If paying through insurance you are responsible for your co-pay only. Payment is accepted by cash, credit card, or check made out to Allegra Parks. 

 

 

Missed & Cancelled Sessions

Clients will be charged their regular session fee for the appointment if cancellation is made with less than 48 hours notice or if a client does not cancel or attend a scheduled session. If a cancellation is imperative I will do my best to reschedule.

 

Billing & Payment

Clients are expected to pay for each session at the start or end of session.  I am an in-network provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and HMO. It may be possible for clients to receive reimbursement for sessions with me as an out-of-network provider, which most other insurances offer. Out-of-network usually has a deductible (a certain amount that clients must pay out of pocket before the insurance company will start to cover fees) and then covers services at a percentage. When seen out-of-network, I complete the necessary documentation for clients to pursue reimbursement directly from their insurance provider.
