Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions do I need to do?

I typically recommend that we start with 4 to 6 sessions (1 session per week if possible).  Sessions are highly personalized to your unique needs. Together we can evaluate the progress  made on your goals and decide what the next best step is. 


What are your rates?
 $120 per 50-minute session


Do you take insurance?
No. I have opted to be an out-of-network provider for insurance plans to honor your rights to the strictest confidentiality in the best possibly way. Insurance companies require clinicians to assign a mental health diagnosis that will become part of your medical record, and require on-going updates on progress.  In addition, many people may be handling your claim throughout the process.


If you would like to use your benefits, I recommend that you start  by reaching out to your insurance company and ask 2 questions.  1. Ask for a list of in-network providers and see if anyone on the list would be a good fit for you.  2. Reimbursement depends on your insurance plan and level of coverage. I recommend that you call and ask if your insurance will reimburse for out-of-network mental health services, and what the reimbursement rate might be.  If you determine that there is more benefit than potential harm,   I  will gladly provide a statement so that you may apply for reimbursement. 


What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash, checks, credit cards, and HSA accounts  are all accepted forms payment.


What is your cancellation policy?
48 hours advance notice is required in order to cancel the cost of the session.  I respect your time as much as you do mine.  If for any reason I am sick, or otherwise unable to make our session or cancel with 48 hours notice, your following session will be at no charge.
