I can schedule patients two weeks out. I don’t currently participate in any insurance companies, and all sessions are currently through teletherapy. I see patients for brief (1-2 weeks), intensive (2-4 hours daily) treatment of anxiety disorders.  Because of the brief nature of the treatment, I do not prescribe medications; but I do use effective approaches from cognitive behavioral therapy to help people recover quickly and get back to living their lives.  Please check out my website for more details.
