15-MINUTE INITIAL CONSULTATION

FREE

I want therapy to work for you. A strong therapeutic relationship is linked to successful therapeutic outcomes. Before you make a jump into the hard work of therapy, let's meet to see if I am the right therapist for you. This appointment will be conducted via telehealth to ensure your comfort with this platform. We will discuss:

  • Your reasons for seeking therapy

  • My approach to therapy

  • Answer any questions you may have

  • Schedule an appointment if appropriate or discuss referrals

Please be aware that a consultation is not therapy.

FIRST INDIVIDUAL SESSION

75 minutes, $175/session

The initial counseling session is 75 minutes. It’s 25 minutes longer than a normal session and for good reason. During this HIPAA-compliant telehealth session we will create the foundation of our work together – this means we will go over informed consent, confidentiality, and office policies. We will also discuss goals and mutual expectations to make sure we are on the same page. If time permits, we will dive into our work together.

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

50 minutes, $150/session

I offer individual counseling sessions via telehealth using a HIPAA-compliant video conferencing platform. We will work together collaboratively to create a safe space for you to explore. I will help you examine unhelpful thoughts, highlight internal strengths, and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles.

 

PAYMENT

Clients pay for services at the beginning of each session. I accept cash and all major credit cards.

I currently do not accept insurance and am considered an “out-of-network” provider or “private-pay provider."  I can provide you with a “superbill” which is paperwork you can provide to your insurance provider. They may or may not provide a partial reimbursement for services. Please check carefully with your insurance provider prior to our first appointment to ensure your sessions will be reimbursed.

 

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. 

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

 For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 985-3059.
