Getting Started

As of July 20 2021 my practice is closed to new clients. Please check my availability in September 2021.

How to Begin

Your therapy process starts when we make arrangements for the first meeting. The beginning includes formalizing our plans for your therapy goals. This consists of finalizing necessary agreements and sharing important information with you.
I begin with a comprehensive assessment for us to develop a treatment plan. Our work is collaborative. The therapy will be productive when the plans that develop from our meetings are put into practice in your daily life.

Insurance Plans

I am contracted with various insurance companies.  You can confirm whether or not your insurance can be used in our session by contacting your insurance company or searching the insurance directory. I also work with some Employment Assistance Programs (EAPs).

Fees and Payment

The typical cost is $120 per therapy session. A sliding scale is available on a limited basis. Payment is expected at the time of service. When using insurance plans, the copay will be due for each visit.

Cancellation Policy

Appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours notice or missed sessions will be charged to the client. The fee is equal to the total cost of the session.

Confidentiality

The therapy experience is a confidential process where I protect your health information. Confidentiality offers clients a setting to freely express your concerns. This privacy allows clients to make progress at their pace. However, what happens in a session doesn't always stay in a session. A therapist is obligated to break confidentiality in the name of public safety and a client's health and safety.
