FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I begin therapy with you?

You can call, email, or message me through this site to ask questions or set up an initial appointment. I will email the new client paperwork to you. When you come in for the first session, you can expect me to be warm, accepting, and actively engaged in the process of helping you. We’ll work together to figure out a plan for treatment that fits for you.

What are your hours?

Appointments are available on weekdays. Please call or email me to schedule a session. ​

How much do you charge?

My rate is $150 per hour long session. ​I can, at times, offer a reduced fee based on need. 

Do you take insurance?

I currently take Aetna or self-pay. If you have a different form of insurance, I can provide you with a superbill, which can sometimes be submitted to the insurance company for reimbursement. It’s best to check with your insurance company to see if this is an option they cover. Many clients are also able to use their HSA. For this option, I recommend checking your plan/coverage to make sure it's covered and to see if any documentation or receipt is needed. 

 

Are there benefits to not using my insurance for therapy?

Yes! Not only can I better protect your confidential information, I can tailor therapy to your specific needs. Insurance can be limiting in terms of what modalities of therapy, diagnoses, and number of sessions are covered. Self-pay allows me to provide the best quality of care to my clients, gives my clients more control over their treatment and information, and doesn’t require a diagnosis.

 

Can I bring my baby to a session?

Absolutely! I work with many new moms who need to bring their babies with them to session.

 

Do you offer web or phone sessions?

I offer video sessions in some situations. Please contact me to discuss this option and we can determine what mode of therapy will be the best fit for you.​

 

Is your office easily accessible?

Yes, my office is on the first floor and is wheelchair and stroller accessible.
