Frequently Asked Questions About Therapy
with Kim Kuskovsky, LMFT

Where are you located?

I offer online therapy to individuals and couples living in New York, New Jersey, California, and Florida.

How does online therapy work?

Therapy is provided through a confidential and HIPPA compliant version of Zoom.  All you need is an internet connection, private space, and a phone, laptop, or tablet and we'll connect. This is a convenient way to receive the insight and guidance provided through face-to-face therapy in the comfort of your home, office, or even outdoors.

Is online therapy as effective as in person therapy?

Online therapy can be just as effective as in person therapy. This depends on you, your challenges, and your needs. We will discuss openly whether online therapy is the right fit or not before beginning to work together.

What are your fees?

Individual therapy is $200 per 45 minute session and couples therapy is $250 per 60 minute session. Sliding scale fees are available on a limited basis. Accepted forms of payments are credit card, debit card, and HSA card.

Do you accept insurance?

I am an out of network provider.  This means you can utilize your out of network benefits for reimbursement.  I will provide a monthly superbill (itemized receipt) for easy reimbursement.

What is the 'No Surprises' Act and a Good Faith Estimate?

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.  Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. ​You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit

What can I expect during my first appointment?

Our first appointment will be about getting a better understanding of the challenges you are experiencing that are bringing you in for therapy. We will also talk about goals for therapy and any specific needs you may have. I know this can feel intimidating! We will go at your pace and you are welcome to ask me any questions about myself or the process at any time. Ultimately, this is a safe space for you and I'm here to support you.

How long do I need to be in therapy?

This depends on you, the challenges you are facing, and progress that is being made. We will assess and reassess how you are feeling throughout the process.

How do we get started?

Email me today at or fill out my intake form under the 'contact' tab on this website. I look forwad to connecting!
