FAQs

I do not accept insurance since I am considered an out-of-network provider. If you have out-of-network benefits, your insurance company may reimburse you (call your insurance company to find out). If you are eligible for benefits, payment is still due upon the start of a session. I can provide you with a bill that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

I reserve a few spaces in my practice for reduced fee therapy appointments. I may have a space available, so please contact me for more information if this is something you need.

My practice is fully booked currently, but I still have limited openings from time to time. Please contact me if you’d like to book an appointment as I may be available to speak with you.

Therapy should be an active process, so we will collaborate on finding solutions together. I am here for you and will support you through your journey!

No, I am not licensed or trained to prescribe medication. My goal is to help you find positive ways of coping and healing without the use of medication, but I may suggest you see a psychiatrist if I feel that psychotherapy alone does not help you improve enough

All sessions, whether you’re an individual, couple, or family, are 50 minutes long. I offer 80-minute sessions for couples upon request.
