I offer a free 15 minute initial phone consultation for all potential clients. We can discuss what is challenging for you right now, and I can answer questions you may have about starting counseling.

The first session is a comprehensive assessment where we discuss your primary concerns and history in more depth. We can discuss your goals for counseling and what to expect during the process of counseling.

Ongoing counseling sessions are 50 minutes and allow us to define and work towards your goals for improving mood, changing behaviors, developing understanding, etc. Expect the structure of the session to be fairly consistent with a beginning, middle, and end.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONTACT YOU ABOUT ESTABLISHING TREATMENT OR FOR ON-GOING SCHEDULING NEEDS?
If you are an established client, the best way to communicate with me is through the secure messaging feature in the client portal. There you can confirm, cancel, or request a new time for your upcoming appointment. Please do not use my email or phone to discuss treatment related concerns.
if you are a new client, please utilize the client portal to request a 15 minute phone consultation at a time that is available and convenient for you. Please do not use text, phone, or email to communicate as these forms of communication are not guaranteed to be fully secure and private.
HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?
Please navigate to the home or contact page of this site and press any button labeled "Get Started", select a time that works for you, and then we can get started with a free 15 minute consultation call.
DO YOU HAVE A CANCELLATION POLICY?
There is a 48 hour cancellation policy and late cancellations and no-shows will result in you being billed for the full amount of your scheduled session. Please utilize the cancel session and request new session options in the client portal in advance in order to avoid being billed for the full amount.
WILL MY HEALTH INSURANCE COVER COUNSELING? HOW DO I PAY?
I don't accept insurance directly, but I work with Mentaya, a platform that helps clients get money back on out-of-network therapy sessions. If you have out-of-network benefits, Mentaya will file claims and handle the insurance paperwork to make sure you get reimbursed. They charge a 5% fee per claim and have helped people get thousands of dollars back per year.
Note: Mentaya's goal is to save you time and money. It's completely optional, and as your therapist I do not benefit in any way from your participation.
WILL YOUR FEES FOR COUNSELING SERVICES EVER INCREASE?
I evaluate my fees throughout the year based on changes in the cost of running my business, and implement the change at least one month later. You will be notified at least one month in advance of any changes.
WHAT IS A "GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE"?
You are entitled to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of what the charges could be for psychotherapy services provided to you. While it is not possible for a psychotherapist to know, in advance, how many psychotherapy sessions may be necessary or appropriate for a given person, this form provides an estimate of the cost of services provided. Your total cost of services will depend upon the number of psychotherapy sessions you attend, your individual circumstances, and the type and amount of services that are provided to you. This estimate is not a contract and does not obligate you to obtain any services from the provider(s) listed, nor does it include any services rendered to you that are not identified here.
