ABOUT THERAPY 

WHAT AREAS DO YOU TREAT?

We treat a wide variety of issues including:

  • depression (feeling lonely, blue, blah, unmotivated, hopeless, tearful)

  • anxiety (feeling of fear, dread, or uneasiness. It might cause you to sweat, feel restless and tense, or have a rapid heartbeat)

  • trauma, including complex trauma & PTSD (an immediate or long-term emotional response to an event. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships, and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea)

  • relationship issues (problems trusting, conflict with family, friends, co-workers, finding a partner)

  • shame (a feeling of embarrassment or humiliation that arises in relation to the idea of having done something improper, dishonorable, or immoral. You are afraid of looking stupid or saying the wrong thing, so you don't try new things and don't speak up)

  • career (hating your job but feeling stuck, imposter syndrome, changing careers, job loss)

  • low self-esteem (lacking confidence, undeserving of good things, never feeling good enough)

HOW DO I START THERAPY?

Typically we meet for an initial consultation to determine personal fit and goals, answer questions, and determine a consistent meeting time. Sessions typically last 45 to 60 minutes and are either in-person or via video.

HOW LONG DOES THERAPY LAST?

Therapy can last anywhere from one session to several months or years. It all depends on what you want and need.

WHAT ABOUT MEDICATION?

Medication can be a valuable addition in addition to talk therapy. We have a trusted network of professionals to refer you to.

SESSION FEES

  • Individual: $250

  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing): $300 - $400

  • Couples/Dyads: $300 (triads/multiple partners are +$50 for each additional partner)

  • Sliding Scale: If you do not see your insurance company on my panel or you do not think you can afford therapy, call or email me. Let's see what we can figure out together. If for some reason we cannot work together, I will work with you to find someone who can. 

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE? WHAT ABOUT OUT-OF-NETWORK COVERAGE?

In-Network

  • Aetna

  • ​Cigna

  • ​Healthplus

Out-of-Network

  • ​We work with many plans that are Out-of-Network. It depends on whether your plan has Out-of-Network coverage. Invoices are provided for insurance reimbursement and offer complimentary claim insurance filing.

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR INSURANCE PROVIDER

  • Do I have out-of-network Behavioral health benefits?

  • Do I have a deductible and if so how much?

  • ​Do I need a pre-authorization and if so how do I get it?

CANCELLATION

We allow 48 hours cancellation notification at no cost. Coming late to the session will still require you to pay for the full session even though the time will not be prolonged. You are responsible to cover the cost of any session that you do notall attend without prior 48 hours notification. 

Note: Insurance companies do not provide reimbursement for canceled sessions; fees for late cancellations are the client’s responsibility.
