Schedule an intake
Use the form below to tell me about yourself, and I’ll call or email you back to schedule a consultation. Please be as detailed as possible. You may also email or call me to make an appointment. My general response time is two business days.
What should I expect during my initial appointment?
During our first session, we will talk about what concerns are brought you in to therapy. I will also ask questions to get information about your background and history. We will go at your own pace, making sure you are comfortable and feel secure. You will also have the opportunity to ask me questions. Using the information we discuss during the first few sessions, I will formulate and discuss a treatment plan with you.
How long are sessions?
Sessions are 45-55 minutes.
How often will we meet?
Typically, I see my patients once a week. After our first session we will agree upon a time that will be held for you each week. We will discuss frequency of sessions and length of treatment in more detail when we develop a treatment plan.
Do you accept insurance?
I am an out-of-network provider which means I do not work directly with insurance plans. Instead, I provide you with a billing statement each month for you to submit to your insurance company.
Most insurance companies will reimburse you between 40%-80% of my fee. Prior to meeting, I recommend you call your insurance company to clarify your benefit plan. Helpful questions include:
1) Do you reimburse for an out-of-network psychologist (behavioral health)and if so how much or at what percentage?
2) Do I have a deductible I have to meet first?
Why don't you accept insurance?
There are several reasons I have chosen to remain out-of-network with insurance companies. First and foremost, many insurance companies dictate the type, frequency, and duration of therapy sessions they allow their members. It is my opinion that those clinical decisions should remain between myself and my patients. Secondly, insurance companies often ask for a good deal of clinical information about their members. I favor protecting the confidentiality of the treatment and your privacy.
