What to expect

In our work together, you’ll learn how to assess your own behaviors and triggers and to reframe and integrate them in new ways. When you do, you’ll free yourself from outdated behaviors that no longer serve you. You’ll create a clear and open space to move forward, make new choices and form new habits that support you in the here and now. 

Ultimately, developing a better relationship with yourself also helps you change, enhance or deepen your relationships with others. Relational therapy can help you experience:

  • greater happiness
  • more engagement
  • self-assuredness
  • self-trust
  • self-understanding
  • a sense of security
  • personal agency
  • spaciousness

The most important outcome you can expect to experience through our work together is a sense of personal freedom, plain and simple.

Frequently asked questions

How do I know if therapy is right for me?

Whether or not therapy is the right fit for you depends a lot on where you are in your life and the pathways you want to pursue to address your struggles and concerns. Everyone responds to therapy differently, and it’s not the only modality that can be beneficial. Whether used alone or in combination with other practices and approaches, it can be an incredibly effective tool for healing and growth.

Do you take insurance?

My practice is considered out of network and I do not currently accept insurance. However, I can provide a superbill, which is an itemized form that reflects rendered services and includes all the information you will need to file with your insurance company for reimbursement. If you plan on filing for out-of-network benefits, please contact your insurance company directly to determine if your insurance company will cover your sessions and if so, what percentage will be covered and their procedures for reimbursement. If you have any questions, please let me know and we can discuss this further.

How long are individual sessions?

Depending upon the therapy format you choose, individual sessions are two to three hours in length. Therapy intensives are five hours in duration.

How long should I expect to work with you?

The duration of therapy is wholly individual. Because long-format sessions allow us to do more in one session, clients often find they benefit from just one session a month, or one session every few months. The choice to continue or return to counseling is entirely yours, and the duration is dependent on your individual needs and what you’re working on.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I currently accept cash, checks and credit cards, including HSA and FSA cards. Payment is due at the end of each session.

What is your cancellation policy?

To avoid being charged for a session, cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance for individual therapy sessions, and 48 hours in advance for therapy intensives and two-person sessions.

Do you offer couples therapy?

The core of our work together is about you and takes the form of individual, one-on-one sessions. However, when appropriate, if you have a partner whose involvement may be relevant to our work and your growth, that person may be invited to take part in a limited number of sessions as needed. I do not offer couples therapy as a separate service.

How long have you been practicing?

I’ve been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2015.

Do I need medication?

I view medication as one of many tools that can be used to treat presenting symptoms. Medication can be highly effective in conjunction with therapy and a powerful tool to use for quickly rewiring the brain. However, I believe the choice regarding medication is an individual one, and I provide the option to integrate prescribed medication into an overall treatment plan if desired.
