When meeting online, your sessions are provided through an easy-to-use video platform that is HIPAA compliant, called SimplePractice. When using a tablet or smartphone, you can easily access your virtual session room through the app, "Telehealth by SimplePractice." When accessing your session on a laptop or computer, your session link will open automatically in your default web browser. Your free consultation will give you an opportunity to experience the virtual platform.
How much does therapy cost?
A typical 50 minute session costs $150.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
I am not in-network with any insurance providers. I can provide superbills if you'd like to file for reimbursement from your insurance provider. This means you pay for your sessions and request reimbursement from your insurance provider. Reimbursement is not guaranteed.
HOW DO I PAY?
The secure online platform we use for your sessions will allow you to pay by credit or debit card or any HSA with a credit card logo.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
There is no charge if you cancel or reschedule your appointment with at least 24 hours notice. A full session fee is charged if less than 24 hours notice is given.
A consultation is a free 20-minute virtual meeting I offer to potential clients to ask questions and get a feel for me before making a decision to work together. It's an opportunity to see me virtually, face-to-face, and ask me any lingering questions you still have after checking out my website. Maybe you want to know more about what sessions look like, my specialties, my policies, my availability, or anything else you still want to know. Perhaps you've never done virtual therapy and aren't sure you'll get that same connection feeling like in-person therapy. Consultations are held via the virtual platform I use, SimplePractice, so you can experience the exact setting we'd have in a session. Consultations are also a really great opportunity to get a feel for me and my personality and whether you get that "vibe" feeling. Research has shown that the number one factor that impacts of change in therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. It's super important, and I absolutely want you to have the opportunity to determine whether you think we may have that vibe AND if you think I can help you with what you want out of therapy. So please reach out! I'd love to chat more.
I've never been to therapy? How does it work? What will happen?

More specifically, for our first 2-3 sessions, we will just be getting to know each other. In the first session, I ask questions about what brought you to therapy, what you hope to work on, what your goals are, and what you hope things will look like when you get some relief. Don't worry, you don't have to come prepared with those things in mind or even bring them up. I'll take the lead and you are welcome to answer what you'd like to and to decline answering whatever feels uncomfortable. Once we discuss those things, we'll take the next session or two for you to really be heard about everything you want me to know about your situation. It helps you get a feel for me and if I'm safe to work with, and it helps me really get to know you and what things have been like for you. After that, we usually get to working on your goals and what's getting between you and them. That's where I help you determine where to start and we go from there to work towards your goals and get you some relief. Always, as the backbone of our work together is the knowledge between the two of us of your goals you've set when we started. It helps keep us on track so that you can reach those goals more successfully. However, I also know that sometimes things come up in the present that need attention, so sometimes we'll pause our backbone work for something that needs attention in the present. You are always welcome to let me know if your goals or preferred focus in therapy changes.
Two things I highly recommend, to be as successful as possible between sessions: 1) If possible, set aside an hour after your session to continue to process your work. 2) Set aside 10-15 minutes a day to have some introspective time to be with yourself day to day.
