Services may be covered in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Upon your request, I will provide you with a receipt for sessions that you may file on your own. Please check with your insurance provider to see if they cover “out of network” providers. If so, you simply mail them the session receipt I give you after your session, and it usually takes most insurance companies 2-3 weeks to mail you a check for the percentage they cover. Please note, payment is due at the time of each session, whether you choose to file with your insurance or not.


8 Week Challenge

The proof is in the research. I’d have to add another page to list the research articles continually confirming this! Actually, the majority of the research says it’s 12 weeks. But 8 weeks still represents significant change. It also says psychotherapy starts working at the first session- unlike medication. Ultimately, therapy is your choice and you should never feel contractually obligated to come. But sometimes a good challenge helps motivate us to commit to ourselves. So I challenge you to commit to yourself at least 8 weeks of consecutive counseling. (1 session per week). If you come each week, your 8th session will be free of charge. I recommend paying your 7 sessions up front to encourage your commitment. But you are welcome to pay as you go each week too. But it only works for 8 consecutive weeks. Don’t forget- if you have insurance- they will most likely pay you back 60-80% of this. BCBS usually sends my clients refund checks in 2-3 weeks.

Reduced Fee/ Sliding Scale

Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis. If you are serious about engaging in counseling and beginning the self work involved, I will do what I can to work with you as I believe that every willing person deserves this opportunity. I also understand that not everyone’s insurance covers the cost of counseling, and will work with you to come up with fair payment. Because I value both my and your time, an initial assessment will occur before this agreement is made to ensure fit and likelihood of progress. Please contact me so we can discuss your options.

First time clients

Developing a therapeutic alliance and “good fit” is one of the most important parts of the counseling process. I offer a brief initial consultation free of charge for face to face clients while you are trying to find the right therapist.

Cancellation Policy

If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. If you need to cancel or change your appointment time, please contact me at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment time, to avoid being charged for a missed session.
