Dr. Danielle Sheypuk is an experienced licensed clinical psychologist. She has a significant amount of clinical experience treating a wide-variety of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, substance abuse problems, traumatic experiences, matters of grief/death/dying and self-esteem improvement.

Skype Therapy

Skype is a no-fee, Internet-based video conferencing application that streams via most computer operating systems worldwide. Its simplicity of use and high-quality transmission is best experienced via a high-speed internet connection. You will need to have installed a web camera and audio speakers. Many webcams come with a built-in microphone.

Skype sessions are conducted in the same way that office-based sessions are conducted. Communication by Skype is encrypted and decrypted automatically, and therefore all of your communications with Dr. Sheypuk via Skype will be confidential.

If engaging in a Skype Therapy session, Dr. Sheypuk recommends that you try to create a private space free from distractions. It is recommended also to use a headset for increased privacy.

Office Practice

Dr. Sheypuk also sees clients in an office setting, located on the 36th Floor at One Penn Plaza in the heart of Manhattan, near Penn Station, Macy’s, and the bustling Madison Square Garden complex. The office building is accessible by most bus and subway lines, and it is fully ADA compliant.

Payment and Insurance

The fee scale begins at $150 for a 45-minute therapy session. In some cases, where a special need has been established, a reduced rate may be negotiated. Dr. Sheypuk accepts some insurances. She is also an “out-of-network” provider.  Many insurances have an “out-of-network” plan, frequently reimbursing its members 50%- 100% of the therapy session fee.   Fees, insurance matters, and co-pays will be discussed during the free 20-minute confidential phone consultation that Dr. Sheypuk conducts prior to scheduling the first session.  All therapy is rendered on a fee-for-service basis.

Cancellation Policy

Both Skype and in person sessions can run as few, or as many, as you require. You can always cancel an appointment or reschedule, free-of-charge, if it is more than 24 hours in advance of your scheduled session.  If 24 hours notice is not given, you will be responsible for the cost of the session.
