Initial Phone Consultation
I offer a free initial 20 minute phone consultation. This will give us the opportunity to explore goals for therapy as well as determine if my approach is the best fit for you. There is an overwhelming amount evidence that the counseling process is most beneficial when the therapist and client are able to build a relationship that includes therapeutic safety and rapport with a shared understanding of your individual needs and hopes for growth. If you are a parent seeking services on behalf of your child or adolescent this will also be a time when we can discuss the structure of initial sessions.
My fee as an out of network provider for a 55 minute individual or family session is $150. I offer reduced rates for individuals who are not utilizing an insurance plan, as well as some out of network plans. This will be discussed during the initial phone consultation.

I am currently an out-of-network provider for all other insurance companies. This means I can provide you with a statement that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. The following questions may be helpful to discuss with your insurance company:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- Do I have a deductible that must be met?
- What is the cost covered per session?
- How many sessions are covered?
Payments and Cancellations
Payment: Payment is due at the time of service. I accept cash, check, debit or credit cards.
Cancellations: If you miss a scheduled session and have not cancelled with at least 24hrs notice you will be required to pay the full cost of that session out of pocket. Insurance companies do not pay for missed or late cancelled appointments.
