Frequently asked questions

Does therapy help?


It is not uncommon to encounter times when life's stressors outpace our coping resources. At any given time, more than 1 in 4 adults is struggling with a mental health issue. Research shows that psychotherapy helps people grow and change.

For more information on Understanding Psychotherapy, the American Psychological Association has a great article on the topic click here.




Are you accepting new Clients?


I have a couple of available appointment slots--the best way to determine if our schedules will mesh is to email me and we can discuss scheduling options.




How do I schedule an appointment?


Email to set up an appointment or call for a free 15 min consulation.




How much does therapy cost?


60-minute intake sessions are $200, subsequent sessions are $150 for 50-minute sessions (individual or couple). There are times when it could be helpful to meet for more or less than 50 minutes--if this is the case, we will discuss the details in advance.




Do you take insurance?


I do not process insurance. It's always recommended that you call your insurance company and explore your out-of-network benefits. As an out-of-network provider I can give you an itemized receipt with the needed medical codes that you can submit to your insurance company if applicable.

I can process HSA and FSA credit cards and provide an itemized receipt with the needed medical codes.




What is your cancellation policy?


One "whoops" (missed appointment) is excused, after that the full amount of the session will be charged.
