I appreciate that you're considering me for your mental health treatment. Therapy can be challenging, and it's also not cheap. But a successful connection with a skillful therapist will enrich every area of your life. It's an important investment, and I encourage you to shop around. Interview as many potential therapists as you can, at least by phone, until your gut and budget agree that you've found a good fit.
Rates: Payment is required same day and can be made with a card of your choice (credit, debit, HSA, FSA) via Ivy Pay. I have three sliding scale spots that I offer when requested and when available. Whether or not you feel you can afford me, you're welcome to call to discuss.
$160 per 60-minute individual session
$120 per 45-minute individual session
$240 per 90-minute individual session
$200 per 60-minute couples session
Insurance: I don't work with insurance companies, and am happy to discuss why during our consultation. If your insurance plan covers visits to out-of-network mental health providers, you may submit documentation that I can provide for reimbursement.
Confidentiality Policy and Limits: Trust and safety are important in this work. It takes time and cares for therapists and clients to establish both. Among other things, you're trusting that I will protect your mental health information. Please be assured that what you tell me stays between us unless (1) I seek consultation about your case, in which case you are not identified; or (2) you designate, in writing, that I release your information with your name attached to someone of your choosing; or (3) there is a suggestion of abuse or imminent harm, in which case, the following limits to confidentiality will immediately apply:
If there is suspected abuse of a child or a dependent adult or an elderly person, I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities. If clients threaten serious bodily harm to others, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim(s). If clients intend to harm themselves, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they don't cooperate, I must take further measures, without their permission and as provided by law, to ensure their safety.
Cancellation Policy: If you cannot attend an in-person visit, telehealth is always an alternative, even at the last minute. In the absence of an emergency, if you miss an appointment without giving 24 hours notice, you are charged in full for the missed visit. We'll touch on this when we talk.
