Frequently Asked Questions

Therapy, also called psychotherapy or counseling, is the process of meeting with a therapist to resolve problematic behaviors, beliefs, feelings, relationship issues, and/or somatic responses (sensations in the body). Beginning therapy can be a big step toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible—no matter what challenges you may be facing. Through therapy, you can change self-destructive behaviors and habits, resolve painful feelings, improve your relationships, and more.
Yes. I take the following insurance plans: Optum, Cigna, Aetna, Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Oscar Healthcare, Oxford and UHC. Please note the co-pay is due at the time of service and you will be asked to have a card on file for payment of the co-pay. If your insurance is not listed above, you will need to determine if you have out-of-network mental health coverage through your insurance carrier. The first thing you should do is call them. Check your coverage carefully and make sure you understand their answers.  Some helpful questions you can ask them:
  • What are my mental health benefits?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
  • How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
  • Do I have a deductible to meet?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician? 
Psychotherapy services are reimbursable through some insurance providers through out-of-network coverage. In advance of our session, you should contact your provider and ask about mental health benefits, including number of sessions allowed, reimbursement policies and percentage, and approval requirements (if any). At the end of each month, I will provide an invoice that can be used to file a claim with your provider.

No one can tell you exactly what your therapy process will be like and how long it will last.  Length of therapy can vary depending on your specific needs and circumstances. Some people come to therapy with a specific issue or concern, and brief solution-focused therapy may be the right fit. Often, that can last six to eight sessions. Some people come to therapy to explore issues that seem to run a little deeper. They might engage in therapy for several months or even years.

Yes. I provide telehealth over Google Meet and Zoom Business. Before the day and time of our appointment, I will send you an invite to join me online.

When you must cancel, please give me 24 hours’ notice. If you are unable to provide 24 hours’ notice when you cancel, you will be charged the full fee for your session unless I am able to fill it with another client, or we are able to reschedule within the same week. Rescheduling our appointment requires both an arrangement of time and space availability. Please note that in case of a personal emergency, I may waive this fee.
