You can read all about my services and fees here.

What forms of payment do you Accept?

I accept all major credit/debit cards, Health Savings Account (HSA) cards, as well as Paypal. For in-person sessions I am also able to accept cash or check. Payment is rendered at the time of service unless previous arrangements have been made.  

*Credit Cards and Paypal are subject to a 3% transaction fee.

I do not currently accept insurance (click here for more information regarding insurance), but if you want to use your out-of-network insurance benefits for potential reimbursement, I would be happy to provide you with a superbill. For a great explanation of how out-of-network benefits work, check out this podcast episode: The Concept of Out-Of-Network Benefits for Clinicians and Patients with Rachael Norman.

You can also contact your insurance company directly and ask questions like:

  • Do I have out-of-network coverage for mental health services like individual counseling?
    • If so, how many sessions are covered?
  • How am I reimbursed for services?
    • Am I reimbursed directly?
      • If not, can I put this money towards my deductible?

What are your hours?

My standard office hours for sessions are as follows:

Monday: 10am – 2pm (virtual), 4pm – 6pm (in-office sessions only)

Tuesday: 10am – 5pm (virtual)

Wednesday: 10am – 1pm (in-office sessions only), 3pm-5pm (virtual)

Thursday: 10am – 5pm (virtual)

Fridays are reserved as administrative days.

How long do sessions last & How long will i need counseling?

Sessions typically last between 45-50 minutes. Some clients will meet once a week, bi-weekly, or monthly (when in the maintenance phase). It all depends on where you’re at in your therapeutic journey. (*All clients begin with weekly sessions) Counseling moves at your own pace and is dependent on how much a client invests in the work and the severity of their individual issue(s). We’ll work together to figure out the frequency and type of counseling that works best for you and your goals.

can I do emdr as a supplement to the therapy i’m already doing with another therapist (aka “adjunctive emdr sessions”)?

No, I do not offer adjunctive sessions. I’ve found that limiting the scope of the work that I do with a client is unhelpful and takes away from the benefits of their therapeutic process with me. I do not take on clients who are receiving concurrent therapy with another therapist (excluding couples therapy of course).

What type of precautions are you taking due to COVID-19?

I am so glad you asked! There are a few changes that I’ve made to make sure that both myself and my clients can safely practice counseling at this time.

  1. The majority of sessions have moved online. Don’t worry though, the video conferencing technology we use is HIPAA compliant which means that your sessions will be kept confidential. It also means that you get to enjoy super convenient sessions from the comfort of your own home.
  2. The only sessions being help in-person are EMDR desensitization and reprocessing sessions. These sessions are offered to established clients who have done the foundational work necessary to participate meaningfully in them. Basically, we won’t reach this point until after several virtual sessions.
  3. When clients do meet at the office for an in-person session we do ask that you wear a mask for both of our protection (don’t worry, I’ll be wearing one as well). The office is also equipped with an air purifier that will be running during our session to filter the air as best as possible. Please practice hand hygiene when you enter the building and when you leave. If you are experiencing any symptoms of illness (including fever), please reschedule.
