Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
I am considered an out-of-network provider. What that means is that you pay for therapy at the time of your session, but I can provide you with a monthly receipt of services, which gives you the option of seeking reimbursement from your insurance. It's important to check your out-of-network benefits to see what your insurance will cover. I've had clients who receive 100% reimbursement and others who receive no reimbursement. Some clients have higher deductibles, and don't receive reimbursement until they hit their deductible (for postpartum clients, labor & delivery really helps with meeting that deductible!)
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept all major credit cards, cash, or check. I use a HIPAA-secured processing system called IVY Pay for credit card payments. You can always use a HSA or FSA card for our sessions.
What is the first session like?
During our intake session, I am focused on getting to know you and making sure I understand what brings you to therapy and whether I feel confident I will be able to support you in working towards your specific therapeutic goals. I will also answer any questions you have about the Intake Paperwork and my policies and procedures.
How long is a session?
Sessions are 50 minutes.
How long do people typically stay in therapy?
This varies widely! Some clients are looking for really specific coping skills to navigate a certain situation, and are satisfied with the progress they've made in just a few sessions. Others want to explore things at a more in-depth level, for example, to explore the effects of childhood trauma or look at how their family of origin and developmental years continues to affect how they approach their attachment and bonding in current relationships, and want to meet for several years. Whatever the case, I'm with you every step of the way.
How much are sessions?
Sessions are $140. I am able to offer services on a sliding scale on a limited basis. I can provide referrals as needed if cost is a barrier.
