”Healing takes place because of our open and honest relationship. You can tell me your needs and concerns and know that I am listening. You can trust that you are part of the decision making. I will always tell you my thought process and take the time to answer your questions. This is a real partnership.Jessica KurzdorferPMHNP-BC

I am currently in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and Excellus insurances. I will update the website as other insurances become available. Some insurance companies will reimburse you for services that are out of network. Call and check with your insurer ahead of time to see if this may be an option for you.
My private pay rates are $300 for the initial visit and $150 for each follow up visit.
What makes our care radical?
I am passionate about getting to know all the pieces that make you who you are. I seek to learn about your mental and physical difficulties, your family, relationships, your strengths and challenges at home, work, and school. I want to support you in all of these aspects of your life and help you improve anywhere you are struggling.
I use a family-systems approach. I center treatment on relationship-based interpersonal therapies that highlight attachment. I will always ask you who your support system is. I cherish a chosen family and believe strongly in the beauty of the circle you have created for yourself. I will encourage you to involve your chosen support system into your care.You will heal more quickly and deeply when a trusted loved one is involved in your journey. For children and adolescents, I provide relationship focused care and aim to evaluate and support the whole family through the healing process.
Once you become a client, I consider myself part of your support network. I do my best to be available to you between appointments via text and e-mail within 24-48 hours. I hope that you reach out to me for more than just medication or treatment questions, but also about stressors, big decisions, and great news! I take a limited number of clients so that I may give very good care to the clients I have. I do my best to run my practice differently from a clinic. This is a true relationship in care.
I care about the story of all people. I appreciate the experiences of racial, ethnic, religious, gender, size, and sexual orientation minorities. I honor those with a wide range of disabilities and ask that you come as you are. Please feel comfortable being your authentic self with me.
