About Dr. Sunbeck's Work


Dr. Sunbeck is a NY Licensed Psychologist who has practiced in upstate New York since 1983; and, has taught nationally and internationally since 1991. She started her career working with children and families in crisis; and, she was the first psychologist hired by the University of Rochester to assist with the start-up of the Mt Hope Family Center, over 35 years ago.


Dr. Sunbeck does continue to maintain a small private practice. Her current and returning clients have scheduling priority. Much of her time is now dedicated to consulting in Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Facilities, and, teaching healthcare speciality topics to allied healthcare professionals. Dr. Sunbeck consults and teaches on healthcare topics that range across the lifespan, from school-aged youths' special needs issues, to elders' quality of life decisions, as they and their loved ones anticipate their last stage of life.


MEDICAL INSURANCES ACCEPTED AT PRIVATE PRACTICE LOCATION: Unfortunately my private practice office, located in Penfield NY, is not able to accept Medicare and Medicaid. However, the location has accepted some private pay insurers including: Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Health Care/United Behavioral Health, Optum Behavioral Health, Aetna. Be sure to double-check your benefits if you plan to use your insurance. Your portion of payment is due at each appointment.


MEDICARE AND MEDICAID ACCEPTED AT SKILLED NURSING AND REHABILITATION FACILITIES: I am able to accept Medicare and Medicaid products when providing psychological services to residents at Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Facilities. These locations are full handicap access facilities and meet all requirements needed to qualify for Medicare/Medicaid billing through CHE Senior Psychological Services' group insurance contracts.
