Do you offer a sliding scale?
Do you accept my insurance?
I do not accept insurance. It is very reasonable to want to use your insurance benefits for therapy. However, accepting insurance requires me to give you a diagnosis during our first visit. Many of the people I see don’t have a qualifying mental health diagnosis for insurance reimbursement, and sometimes it takes more than 50 minutes to make an accurate diagnosis. Insurance companies can also dictate the types of treatment I can provide or limit the number of sessions. The diagnosis you receive from your therapist will reside on your health record indefinitely if you use your insurance, which could have implications for your health and life insurance premiums in the future.
If you are still wanting to use your insurance, you can check with your insurance company by calling the number on the back of your insurance card to determine what your out-of-network benefits cover. You will want to find out if you have a deductible, how much they will reimburse for psychotherapy, and whether they cover telehealth sessions.

HOW This WORKs
LET'S START A CONVERSATION
Schedule a free 15-minute phone call so we can get acquainted. When you schedule your consultation call, you'll receive an email linking you to a brief consultation screening form that will help us make the best use of our time. On the call, I'll ask what you're looking for help with, explain how I work and what you can expect from me, you can ask your questions and we can get you scheduled for an appointment when we agree it's a good fit. And if it's not, I'll try my best to point you in the right direction.
THE FIRST SESSION
After we schedule your first session, you'll receive access to the client portal where you can read about my practice policies and complete the intake paperwork that will help us get started. During our first session, we'll get to know each other, build a therapeutic alliance, and get on the same page about your goals and how best to achieve them. Not sure what to talk about? No worries. During that first 80-minute session, I'll be asking a lot of questions.
WE MAKE A PLAN
You are the expert on your life and experience. Together, we'll collaborate using your expertise and mine to create a plan that suits your treatment and journey.
WE DO THE WORK
Ongoing sessions are 45 - 50 minutes and typically occur weekly to start. We'll get in there and do the work to get you where you want to be. You can always expect homework. Sometimes written, sometimes not, but either way, it's important you do the work outside of session to get to where you want to be.
WE ADJUST AND ADAPT
Sometimes things don't go according to plan. Or maybe things go so well and there's a new path the take. Flexibility is a key part of the process.
My goal is always to work myself out of a job. I don't want my clients to need me forever; I want you to develop the skills and tools you need to confront whatever challenges lie ahead. As we see progress, we'll discuss a graduation plan. Sometimes that looks like reducing the frequency for a few sessions before stopping therapy. Sometimes it's one graduation session one month after the last weekly PTSD therapy session to summarize and troubleshoot. In any case, we'll collaborate to determine the best graduation strategy for you.
CONSIDER ME, YOUR OWN CHEERING SQUAD
I'm rooting for you every step of the way. And even after graduation, I'm still here if you need me.
