How does insurance work? 

I am an out of network provider. If you’d like to get reimbursed for your therapy, call your insurance company to get informed about your coverage. I can provide you with a monthly “superbill” (a statement to submit to your insurance company).

How does your billing work? 

Your credit card will be billed following each session. At your request, you’ll receive an insurance-ready statement of services monthly via email.

What if I need to cancel or change my appointment?

If you need to change or cancel your session date/time, just notify me within 24 hours of your appointment to avoid being charged the regular session fee. 

What should I expect for my first appointment?

The first appointment is an initial consultation. This meeting serves as both an orientation and a get-to-know-you. I will be curious to meet you and to hear more about what you're looking for help with.

The initial appointment is typically longer (75 minutes) than usual weekly sessions (45 minutes). Of course you are welcome to ask me any questions. You may want to bring some notes on thoughts to share. If you have been in therapy before, please let me know what about it worked well for you or didn't.

If we decide to move forward, we will set up a time for a follow up appointment. If not, I will do my best to provide you with referrals to other providers who seem like they may be better suited to help you. 

The next 2-3 sessions are a period of initial assessment. They are devoted to getting know you and your treatment needs better so we can identify your goals in therapy.

Goodness of fit between client and therapist plays a big role in how helpful counseling can be. The initial appointments help us both get a read on how well suited we seem to be to work together.
