Obviously everyone has unique and individual therapy goals. But in general, by healing the past, accepting reality as it is, and identifying achievable goals, I believe we can bring serenity, and perhaps even a sense of fun adventure, into the moments of your life - regardless of current health or external situations.
If you are physically unable to get to the office, we can schedule an online therapy session, where we meet face to face on the computer via a secure video conferencing system from wherever you are.
Secure Messaging, Booking, and Forms
I use a HIPPA compliant practice management system called iCouch where we can securely send messages, complete online paperwork, book sessions, or do online therapy (when that's the most appropriate way for us to meet).
If you think we might be a good match for your therapy, you can click the secure link above or below to be taken to my iCouch page. On the top of that page, click "Book a Session" and you can see my availability and book a session. If you have questions, click the same link, then on my iCouch page click "Message Me" to send a secure message. Or feel free to give me a call. We can schedule a time for a short chat to see if working together would be a good next step for you.
About Fees and Insurance
At this time, I do not take insurance.
Advantages of Private Pay
While the financial investment in yourself is higher without insurance, there are advantages to using an out-of-network provider. Your confidentiality is fully protected, because no personal health information is sent to an outside source for payment. Additionally, there is no need for me to make a specific behavioral health diagnosis, which insurance companies always require after your first visit. Sometimes what an insurance company calls a mental health diagnosis, I would more appropriately label a "normal human reaction to a challenging life situation."
I am able to provide what's called a "Superbill," which some policies allow you to submit for partial reimbursement. Please check with your insurance company to find out if you have a benefit for out-of-network outpatient psychotherapy.
Individual Fifty Minute Psychotherapy Session: $100
Therapy is a collaborative experience. I believe successful psychotherapy happens through building a genuine partnership between the client and the therapist. Together, we will explore your current challenges, and then work on crafting the best strategies for you to genuinely thrive in your life - regardless of external situations or health issues. Therapy is a time to look back and heal past hurts, while also looking forward towards sincere goals that are achievable within current physical reality.
