Frequently Asked Questions
The short answer: No, I do not take insurance.
The long answer: My approach with my therapy clients is collaborative, curious, and non-pathologizing. I have a deep understanding of the ways in which we have adapted to our life circumstances. I see my clients' difficulties as an adaptation rather than a diagnosis. I also believe that clients should have the freedom to choose the frequency, length, and number of sessions they need, and that they should not be restricted by insurance companies in this regard.
However, if you want to use your insurance and have a plan that includes coverage for out-of-network providers, I am happy to supply you with monthly invoices (superbills) that you can submit for reimbursement (typically this covers a percentage of my fee). Check with your plan directly to verify your coverage.
The cost is $180.00 per 60 minutes session.
I believe that therapy should be accessible to everyone. For this reason, I reserve a limited number of reduced-fee weekly appointments (based on financial hardship). Please contact me to discuss further.
I accept cash, PayPal, or credit cards. Payments are due at the beginning of the session. All clients are required to keep a credit card on file that will be run only if there’s a violation of my 48-hour cancellation policy.
I have a strict 48 hour cancellation policy. I reserve a space on my calendar especially for you. If you are unable to keep the appointment, please let me know at least 48 business hours in advance.
Absolutely. Modern telehealth options provide a confidential, easy-to-use way to get the same quality therapy online. In fact, many clients prefer online therapy because of its convenience, finding it easier to engage in therapy in the comfort of their homes or offices. In the end, it is your personal preference! You can try both and decide what works best for you as we do not have the restrictions imposed by insurance companies.
One of the keys for therapy to work is consistency. I recommend seeing clients once a week at the start of the therapy process. Weekly meetings allow for the process to move at a good pace.
However, I know that sometimes is hard to commit to weekly sessions. In that case, I can see clients twice a month depending on their circumstances.
Providing the best care for my clients is my priority, this is why I require clients commit to at least have sessions 2x a month.
Currently, I do NOT see couples or children. I help adults clean up their side of the street, so to speak, within their relationships.
This is a particularly important question. You are dedicating time and resources and want to be sure you are picking the right person. You should consider logistical factors (office location, availability, etc) as well as personal factors (my training and expertise, personality, and if you feel comfortable with me). An initial phone conversation should be able answer some of these questions; I suggest that you think about the questions that will inform your decision. Sometimes you have to be in a room with someone before you to truly have a feel for the person. The first couple of face-to-face sessions can continue to inform your decision and we can talk about any ongoing reservations or concerns you may have.
