Why did you become a therapist?
Therapy has been helpful to me in my own life. It has taught me how to cope with anxiety and other life

challenges you are facing.

Why don’t you accept insurance?
As a one-person operation, accepting insurance is challenging as it requires a great deal of
administrative work as well as uncertainty as to when payment will be received. Therefore, in the
interest of being available to as many clients as possible without spending undue time on paperwork
and administration, I opt to work out-of-network.
What is your hourly session rate?
$125 per 55-minute session, payable by cash, check, Venmo, PayPal, or Zelle.
Do you offer a sliding scale/discounted payment option?
Yes, however I keep a limited number of these slots in my schedule and they may not always be
available but you are always welcome to inquire about if it is an option. I do this to help those clients for
whom finances may create a barrier to treatment.
Do you offer a free consultation?
Yes, I am happy to speak with you prior to setting up a first session to ensure that we are a good fit to
work together. Typically, this is a 15-minute phone call, video meeting, or in-person meeting, depending
on your preference.
Do you offer telehealth appointments?
Yes, however I keep a limited number of remote sessions available as my preference is to see clients in-
person. Please feel free to inquire about if remote sessions are currently available.
