Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best way to reach you?
Please submit a form if you are interested in services. I WILL ALWAYS RESPOND TO INQUIRES, EVEN IF I'M NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. I know how annoying it is to email a therapist and never get a response back (ugh!). I will reach out to you by phone or email to schedule a consultation call.
Do I need to have a phone consultation before scheduling an appointment?
Yes, and there are many reasons why I ask this! I want to make sure I would be an appropriate therapist for you, verify our availability matches, and discuss payment options. It's also important that you feel comfortable with me! Therapy is a relationship which requires openness, so a phone call gives you an idea in how we "vibe" together.
Do you only see clients virtually?
Yes, I strictly see clients virtually. I use a HIPPA-compliant portal so sessions are private and secure.
What type of clients do you see?
My specialty areas includes those who have experienced trauma and adult children of unloving, dismissive, or invalidating parents. I also work with those who are experiencing anxiety or depression symptoms.
I am LGBTQ+ affirming and have no strong religious alliance, so many who align similarly tend to feel most comfortable with myself.
What is your availability?
I see clients Monday-Fridays. Please note that 4pm and 5pm sessions fill up quickly and are not always available. I do not offer weekend sessions.
What are your rates?
55 min sessions: $135
This is the most common type of session. Please inquire if you are interested in extended sessions.
I reserve limited slots for sliding scale clients, which are based on household income and are not always available for those who qualify. I also offer sliding scale rates to FUTURE COUNSELORS (those in a graduate therapy program or in their intern stages). This is to help future helpers of the field resolve their traumas to better support the mental health community at large. If you are interested in a sliding scale, please ask.
Do you accept insurance?
I am considered an "Out-of-Network Provider". You may use out-of-network therapy benefits if you have access to that with your insurance provider.
