Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept insurance?
I do not accept insurance, but would be happy to provide you with a superbill that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Please check your mental health benefits to see if individual, couples or group therapy would be covered.
Do you offer consultations before I commit to therapy?
Absolutely! I offer free 15-minute phone consultations before scheduling an initial intake appointment.
Then, if we want to proceed, I consider the first few sessions a trial period where we determine together if proceeding is the most appropriate for your presenting issues and to make sure we’re all a fit for each other. If not, I will provide referrals to other clinicians I feel may be better suited for your needs.
Do you offer telehealth?
Currently, I am only offering telehealth appointments. I will begin offering clients a choice of telehealth or in-person appointments in the fall (and depending on the state and county guidelines around the risk of Covid-19 at that time).
What are your fees?
My fee for a 50 minute session is $180.
Group therapy fees are currently set at $60 per 90-minute session
Why do people go to therapy and how can I know if it is right for me?
People have many different reasons for coming to therapy. Some may be going through a major life transition (unemployment, divorce, new job, etc.), or are finding they don't like the way they're handling stressful circumstances.
Some people need assistance managing a range of other issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship problems, spiritual conflicts and creative blocks.
Others may be at a point where they're ready to learn more about themselves or want to be more effective with their goals in life.
Therapy creates a safe relationship to address any issues that need attention, and allows us to undo your aloneness with them.
