Frequently Asked Questions
What forms of payment do you accept?
I take credit card payments through a system called Stripe.
What is your cancellation policy?
To cancel or reschedule an appointment, I require at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment. You will be responsible for your full session fee if cancellation is not received at least 24 hours in advance.
Do you accept insurance?
I do not file with insurance, but I can provide you with a monthly statement for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please reach out to your insurance company to check if your sessions will be covered, and their policies on reimbursement. The following questions may be helpful when contacting your insurance company:
What is my out-of-pocket deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
What is your fee?
My rate for a 50 minute individual session is $175.
My rate for a 50 minute parent coaching session is $175.
My rate for a 50 minute couples or group session is $200.

How long is each session and how often should I come to therapy?
Each session is 50 minutes. How often a person should come to therapy is dependent on the individual. Most individuals attend therapy once per week, especially in the beginning of our work together. When things feel significantly distressful, twice per week is an option as well. It is not uncommon to step down to biweekly, or even monthly sessions as the 'work' lessens.
