Frequently Asked Questions
Is therapy right for me?
People find therapy helpful for different reasons, whether it's to more effectively manage long-standing psychological issues, or to find support in times of transition or difficulty. Therapy is right for anyone who wants to gain insight and create change in their lives. If you are not sure about whether therapy can help you, I encourage you to schedule a free phone consultation so we can discuss your unique circumstances.
What should I expect in the first session?
The first session is the beginning of evaluation to assess the therapeutic fit. We will discuss why you are seeking therapy at this time, any previous therapy experiences you have had, and your current goals for treatment. This is also a time for you to determine if my therapeutic style works for you, and to ask about my training, experience, and how I might approach our work together. We will also discuss payment, confidentiality, cancellations, and phone calls between appointments.
Do you accept insurance?
I am an out-of-network provider for all insurance companies. I can provide you with a "superbill" on a monthly basis that you can submit to your insurance company to request reimbursement. I encourage you to contact your insurance company directly with questions about your coverage. If your insurance does not cover out-of-network providers, you may be able to pay for therapy out of your pre-tax income using an HSA or FSA account.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require at least 48-hours notice for all cancelled appointments.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept payment by cash, check, or credit card. Payment is made in full at the time services are rendered.
