Frequently Asked Questions


We are not in network with any insurance companies. In order to ensure the privacy of your personal health information, we work independent from insurance companies who require your therapists to select a diagnosis and turn over client personal health information in order to reimburse for services. These diagnoses are usually unbeknownst to clients and can stay on a medical record permanently as a preexisting illness.

Dependent on your insurance plan, you may be able to fund therapy using out-of-network benefits. I can provide a Superbill for out-of-network reimbursement (you are responsible for payment upfront at the time of session).

I am able to accept pre-tax funds from an HSA or FSA account. Using pre-tax dollars to fund therapy means you will receive services at discounted cost based on your tax rate (i.e. if you normally pay 30% of your income to taxes, you effectively receive counseling services 30% off).

Here are some questions you can ask the Member Services department of your insurance company:

  • Do I have out-of-network outpatient mental health coverage? Am I able to use these benefits for telehealth?
  • What is my out-of-network deductible?
  • How much of my deductible has been met this year?
  • Do I need a referral from an in-network provider to see someone out-of-network?
  • What percentage of outpatient psychotherapy sessions are covered per session?
  • How much will I be reimbursed for a 50 minute psychotherapy or relational session?
  • How do I submit claim forms for reimbursement?
  • How long does it take for me to receive reimbursement?

Session Fees

Therapy services can be a significant investment for clients paying out-of-pocket. While you are billed for your 50-minute sessions, behind the scenes the therapist spends much more time working on your case- this includes tasks like the intake process, ongoing paperwork and documentation, continuing education, and consultation with other providers about cases.

All of these tasks are completed in order to provide our clients with the highest level of care possible and are reflected in the set fees. The outcomes of mental health treatment are promising and you can carry the benefits (e.g. self insight, emotion regulation, coping skills, healthy communication) beyond your days in active treatment.

The reality is that most people would benefit from professional mental health services at some point in their lifetime. Life is full of changes, transitions, traumas, conflict, stress, grief, heartbreak, and more. If you grew up in the U.S., chances are that while you learned to memorize the quadratic equation and dissect & analyze the anatomy of a frog, you never were taught how to regulate or understand your own emotions or relationships.

Therapy is an excellent place to work with a trained professional to sort out your experiences, the way you view the world, and your relational dynamic patterns. Therapists can guide you to better understand yourself, to learn to regulate your emotions, and to create sustainable behavior change aligned with your values. If you feel stuck in an area of your life and are seeking deeper clarity and meaning, therapy could be a great option for you.

While you are interacting with a professional therapist, they are not only serving as an empathetic, non-judgmental figure of support for you, but they are assessing your early learnings and present patterns to consider your current dynamics, all while applying evidence-based therapeutic skills to facilitate your healing. Engaging with your personal social circles can be a healing experience, but a different one than a trained therapist will walk you through.

fore scheduling a therapy session, I do a free 15 minute intro call with all potential new clients. This gives us the chance to get to know each other. We’ll talk about:

  • Why you’re seeking therapy
  • I’ll tell you a bit about my approach
  • You can ask me any questions that I didn’t cover
  • We’ll talk about rates, scheduling, logistics, etc.

Schedule your call here.

If we both decide we’re a good fit after our intro call, we’ll schedule our first therapy session. I’ll send you some forms to complete before the appointment.

I’ll also get you set up on my system where you will join the video calls each week. Working online is really convenient for clients and especially couples who have busy schedules- no commuting or sitting around in an awkward waiting room anymore!

I take a collaborative, non-judgmental, and relatable approach to therapy that will make getting started a bit easier.

During our first session or two, I’ll ask you a bunch of questions to get to know you and more about your life. I will listen to you without judgment. We will come up with goals together of what you hope to accomplish in therapy.

Over the course of therapy you’ll have the chance to vent, express yourself, gain perspective and new insights, learn to challenge your thoughts, receive feedback, and develop and practice new coping skills. If you’re working with a partner, you’ll be able to practice new communication skills too.

Some sessions therapy can be tough work, and sometimes it feels lighter. Either way, I am here to support you and will help you achieve the change and growth you are looking for.

I meet with the majority of my clients on a weekly basis. I ask that all new clients commit to meeting weekly, for at least the first 6-10 weeks. This will allow us to build momentum so you can start seeing progress.

I may recommend that we increase or decrease the frequency of sessions to best meet your needs.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this. The duration of counseling to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy.

Depending on your specific situation and therapeutic goals, therapy typically requires a commitment of about 12-20 sessions to start seeing successful outcomes, though many clients choose to continue further for continued support, sometimes at a reduced cadence, depending on their preferences.

Couples coming into therapy with infidelity or trauma backgrounds should expect a longer timeframe (8-12 months) for therapy to be effective.

It’s completely understandable to have preferences on a provider based on factors like their age, gender, or marital status. These preferences usually come from a desire to be seen and understood by a therapist with whom you are sharing so much of your personal life. The sense of feeling seen and understood is extremely important part of therapeutic success.

With that being said, while a therapist is bringing their own humanity into sessions, a good provider is primarily drawing on evidence-based models of treatment in session, not on personal experience or opinion. Therapists are trained in skills to facilitate the rapport and trust needed to have successful outcomes in the models they work from.

For this reason, our intake process includes a free introductory call before scheduling an intake session. This call will give you a chance to assess whether you think the provider could be a good fit based on your interaction.

At this time, my weekly therapy sessions are offered exclusively online through virtual (video) telehealth. Due to the cited benefits of telehealth for both individuals and couples, my ongoing sessions are conducted virtually through a video platform (similar to Zoom). I typically do not offer phone sessions, but video sessions may be accessed through your personal device for your convenience.

Over the recent years I have found more and more clients preferring to work from their own home and meet virtually. This is a great option for clients who value increased privacy, convenience, and have busy schedules without the extra time to drive to an office and sit in traffic every week.

While I do not offer weekly sessions in person, my in-person services include:

Monday-Thursday, starting at 11am- 7pm EST.

Weekly sessions are 50 minutes long.

The intake process for couples therapy includes:

  • Session 1- Meet as a group to discuss pain points and set goals
  • Sessions 2 + 3- Therapist meets with each partner 1×1 to explore individual relationship and attachment history
  • Session 4- Meet as group (for every session forward), consolidate takeaways from intake and dive into treatment

Couples may complete these sessions on a weekly cadence (often completing the 2nd and 3rd sessions in the same week) in a total of 3 or 4 weeks.

Alternatively, couples may complete all four of these 50-minute sessions in one marathon intake session, and then schedule regular 50-minute sessions to continue treatment after. This is a great option for couples who are looking for a more accelerated start to treatment and is offered at a slightly reduced rate from my hourly fee.

Note that while my weekly sessions occur on Monday-Thursday, availability for couples marathon sessions may include Fridays and weekends depending on availability.
