As you work with me, I will do everything I can to make the therapeutic process as gentle as possible. We will examine where you feel stuck, what patterns have emerged, how they have been repeated and what has kept you in a series of events where you’ve felt dissatisfied and unfulfilled. Then, we will begin to slowly develop your core internal resources so you can deal with life’s challenges confidently. It is my job to provide you with a sacred space where you will feel safe, nurtured and understood. I look forward to working with you!


I am not in-network with any Insurance companies. My out-of-network and private pay fees are as follows:

-Initial Therapy Intake (70 minutes) $195

-Individual Sessions (50 minutes) $140

-Parent/Teen Sessions (50 minutes) $150

-Longer sessions are available upon request (75 min) $210

I understand emergencies and illnesses happen and we do not always have control over our schedules when this is the case. I will make every effort possible to reschedule a missed appointment within the same week if I have openings available.


Insurance is an agreement between you and your insurance company as to how counseling will be paid for. Most insurances want you to be diagnosed and usually dictate how many and what type of therapy you can have. I believe that should be decided between you and your therapist. However, most PPO plans allow you to choose an out-of-network provider and will cover a percentage of your payment.

I encourage you to ask your carrier the following questions to clarify your coverage for out-of-network providers.

-Do I have out-of network mental health or behavioral health coverage?

-Do I need to meet an out-of-network deductible?

-Is there an annual limit on the number of sessions or the total amount that is reimbursable?

-At what rate will I be reimbursed?

-What’s the process for getting reimbursed?

I will provide you with a monthly receipt to file with your insurance company to assist with the reimbursement process.

Cash, check, and all major credit cards are accepted for payment.
