Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer discounted fees?
I do have a limited number of discounted fee slots. Please contact me regarding availability.
How long does therapy take?
It is different for each person, depending on the goals and the specific issues being addressed. I have a very goal-oriented approach to my work, and I try to check in frequently with my clients about progress in order to stay on track with established goals.
Does my spouse have to come with me for couples counseling?
No. While it is often helpful for both people to work together to improve the relationship, it only takes one person in order for change to happen. So, if your spouse is unwilling to come to counseling, you can still take steps to help your relationship to improve!
Are you on any insurance panels?
At this time I am not a contracted provider with any insurance panels. I am an out-of-network provider for those insurance plans that offer out-of-network benefits. If you have questions about how this works, let me know - I’m more than happy to walk you through how to find out if your plan offers out-of-network benefits and how to submit claims.
Why aren't you on more insurance panels?
Being able to provide therapy services that are affordable and accessible to people is very important to me, while also making sure that the services I provide are the very best I have to offer. In my practice I have tried to strike a balance between the two, and this means that given the current low reimbursement rates for outpatient therapy insurance contracts, I am unable to be a preferred provider for many insurance companies while also maintaining a high standard of care. Moreover, I have found that many insurance plans offer out-of-network benefits that are very helpful in covering some or most of the cost of outpatient therapy sessions. Please contact me using the above form if you are interested in using your benefits to help pay for therapy.
