Do you accept insurance?
I am an out-of-network provider. If you have mental health insurance benefits you may be eligible to submit a claim for reimbursement of out-of-network services. If you choose to seek out-of-network reimbursement I can provide you with a monthly statement (also called a "superbill") that you may submit to your insurance provider.

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

Can I use my HSA or FSA card?
Yes. In most cases you will be able to use your HSA or FSA for therapy services.
Do you offer a sliding scale?
I do offer a limited number of income based sliding scale appointments. At this time, I do not have any openings for sliding scale appointments. You may request to be added to my wait list for a sliding scale spot HERE, but the wait is about 6-9 months.
When do you meet with clients?
I meet with clients Monday through Thursday between the hours of 10 AM and 5 PM.
How often do I need to meet with you?
Appointments are typically 50- minutes in duration, once a week at a time we agree on. Your session time is reserved for you for as long as you need treatment, and that time slot is not given to anyone else until our work together is completed. Therefore, if you to miss a scheduled appointment, you have the option to reschedule it, provided the rescheduled appointment takes place the week before, during, or after original appointment date. If you choose to not reschedule or we cannot find a day/time that is mutually available for a reschedule, you will be charged the full fee for the missed session. I do not offer bi-weekly, monthly sessions, or drop in sessions for the first 6 months of therapy, but am happy to discuss frequency after that time.
Do you see clients virtually or in-person?
all sessions are being offered via telehealth at this time.
