How many visits, and how often?
Generally, I don’t ask clients to commit to a set number of sessions or timeline of appointments, but prefer to collaborate with you on a treatment plan that works for your goals and budget.

"Do you accept insurance?"

Our practice is not affiliated with any insurance networks. Clients pay for their sessions at the time of service, and we do not bill your insurance. However, your insurance company may be able to reimburse you for all or part of your treatment on an “Out of Network” basis. Contact your insurance provider and ask about their Out of Network coverage for mental health services.

The reasons we are not currently “in-network” with insurance companies are related to your quality of care and confidentiality as a patient. In order for insurance to cover your visits, a therapist must diagnose you with a mental health disorder, which becomes a part of your medical record. The insurance provider then can access your records, and may determine how many sessions you may receive – even how many minutes long the sessions can be. These processes can result in treatment delays and gaps. This prevents us from having the freedom to create what we feel is an appropriate treatment plan for each individual client.
