Work With Me
I offer in-person and online (Zoom or phone) sessions.
I want to make sure that you feel comfortable and confident that I am the right person to help you on your personal growth journey. I am happy to have a free 15-20 minute phone call with you to discuss the support you’re needing and for you to get to know me better.
To schedule a phone consultation
I look forward to hearing from you!
Following our initial phone call, if we agree that we would make a good team together to help you reach your goals, we will schedule an initial intake session, which lasts 90-minutes. Future sessions are typically 60 minutes in length. Once your appointment is scheduled, you will have full access to the HIPAA compliant client portal where you can fill out (online) and submit the required intake paperwork. You will also be able to schedule your appointments online and instant message me as well. It’s easy-peasy!
How long does therapy last?
The overall length of treatment can vary based on you and your goals. Brief therapy can be completed in 4 to 12 sessions; however, some people may choose to have additional sessions or need additional sessions due to having more complicated issues or wanting to engage in deeper work and/or personal growth.
Like everything else in life - you only get out what you put into it! Hence, if you do the work between sessions you will see progress faster. You set the pace of your therapy. We can go as fast or as slow as you decide.
Overall, my priority is to help you achieve the outcome you want as quickly as possible,
while still striving to create deep and lasting change.
Grab your laptop/cellphone/tablet, your drink of choice, a blanket, yourself, and experience the benefits of Teletherapy! If you haven't tried Online therapy yet, you will be amazed with how convenient it is.
All you need is:
An internet connected computer, tablet, or smartphone with a camera. Headphones are optional but they are nice for added privacy.
A good internet connection - we don’t want to run the risk of losing connection in the middle of significant work
A comfortable place where you can talk in private without any unwanted interruptions.
How much does a session cost?
My fees are based on the value of my knowledge, experience, continuing education, skills and time.
The 90-minute intake session is $225
Regular 60-minute sessions are $160.
30-minute online/phone check-in (to help work through a pressing issue) are $80.
Longer 90 minute ($225) sessions are often requested by clients who would rather have a longer sessions every other week instead of meeting for one hour each week. Longer sessions can also provide the opportunity for more to be accomplished, particularly when using hypnosis, EMDR or EFT(tapping) and can also be beneficial when processing deep trauma or when dealing with a crisis situation.
Payment is due at time of service. Cash, checks, credit and debit (including HSA/FSA) cards are accepted.
Do you accept insurance?
No. I am considered an out-of-network provider for all insurance companies; hence, I do not bill any insurance directly or negotiate rates on your behalf. Since I am private pay, payment is due at the time of the therapeutic service.
I will provide you with a “Superbill” to submit to your insurance company if you choose to utilize any out-of-network benefits. Reimbursement is between you and your insurance company and is dependent on the particular policy. Please check with your insurance company prior to starting treatment. I do not communicate with insurance companies or enter into single case agreements.
Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
Do I have mental health benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network provider?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Late Cancellation and No Show Policy
If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, or you have not notified me that you are cancelling your appointment at least 48 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session you had scheduled.
