Frequently asked questions

How much does a session cost?


My typical rate is $125 per 50-minute session and $225 per 90-minute session. I accept all major credit cards, checks, and exact cash only. Payment is due at the time of service unless other terms have been agreed upon in writing.




Do you accept insurance?


I am an out-of-network provider for all insurance companies and do not accept insurance. However, I can provide you with a receipt or superbill for therapy services for you to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. I cannot guarantee that you will be reimbursed for services and encourage you to explore what mental health services your insurance policy covers prior to our first session.




What should I expect from a therapy appointment?


It is my priority to provide you with a comfortable and safe space to explore the topics we will discuss in therapy. The first session or two is used to evaluate your current life situation, your goals for therapy, and how I can be beneficial to you. During this time, we will discover what it will be like to work collaboratively. You can expect to be asked multiple questions about you in the first few sessions, so that I can learn more about you, your likes and dislikes, your job, your support system, your current coping skills, your goals, and where you're struggling. To obtain the best experience, you'll want to try to be as open as possible. However, I understand that opening up comes with time and rapport, so I'll be sure to allow you time to ask me questions as well, and work to make sure you feel safe and comfortable during our time together in therapy. While the first couple sessions are used to set the stage, as we progress in therapy you should start to find that you experience more and more breakthroughs, increased self-awareness, shifts in thought process, and are able to identify healthy coping skills to utilize in your daily life. To maintain this trajectory, it is important to be mindful of the time between sessions, and come prepared to our appointments with at least one or two topics to discuss. I will also come prepared with a question or activity to help us when you feel stuck. This is collaboration in action! As we go on our therapy journey, some of our sessions may be easier, while some may feel more intense. This is okay and is a completely normal part of the therapy process. Know that each time you attend a therapy session, you are making an intentional effort at self-care, and that alone is worth celebrating.




What are your hours?


I see clients Monday through Friday, and am able to accommodate morning, afternoon, and evening appointments. At this time, I am able to see clients virtually and in-person in compliance with CDC guidelines. Please let me know ahead of our first appointment if you'd prefer a virtual or in-person session.
