How do I get started?

The first step is a free 15 minute consultation. You can email, call or text. Like I said! I want to make the first step easy and understand phone calls can feel scary. We will discuss your primary concerns and assess whether I am a good match.

How much do you charge?

How long will therapy last? What will it be like?

Typically we will meet weekly for 50 minutes, however I believe therapy should meet your needs. This may mean weekly sessions or based on a collaborative approach we may agree to a higher frequency or fewer sessions. I believe in working together towards agreed upon goals and take a pragmatic individualized approach to creating a therapeutic plan. Periodically we will review agreed upon goals together to assess the continued need for therapy. 

Some of my clients appreciate having a regular ongoing space to reflect about stressors. Others want a more directive planned approach. Both are valuable depending on your current needs. Let me know as we discuss your reasons for reaching out.

What will therapy be like?

This is your space and you should treat it as such. I work relationally, meaning I encourage you to voice your needs, to tell me you disagree, to ask questions and get clarity and to feel open to say what direction feels best for the session. I will offer suggestions and we will continuously check in about the direction of therapy so that you can be sure the space is what you need.

If we are in person - get comfortable! Lounge on the couch. Take off your shoes. Whatever feels good! Tell me if you need to use the restroom or if you need something to drink.

Nothing is off limits- read me the text messages you've regretted or the ones your proud of, show me the pictures. Whatever you want to share, I want to hear.

Who are your clients?

My clients want to know themselves better, understand their past but make better use of their present and get clear on what they want in the future. We are all humans doing the best we can on a big rock floating through space. 

I treat adults and couples. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming. 

Information about Good Faith Estimate

The following is required to be included by law so it's sort of jargon-y. It basically says I can't charge you some random extra fee without your consent. I would never do that anyway.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a 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.
