How much does a counseling session cost?
Sessions are $125 for a dedicated hour session. First sessions usually last longer (up to an hour and a half), but I do not charge for the extra time during an intake. I do accept HSA/FSA cards, which helps to save money. If I am not in your insurance network, I also offer forms for insurance reimbursement.
Do you offer a sliding scale (lower prices)?
I am able to offer a limited number of sliding scale fee sessions for clients with a demonstrated need. Please call to find out more. Spots are limited. Some proof of income may be required in order to make sure that the sliding scale does not exclude anyone who may be waiting for a spot. If you are unsure about qualifying, please ask!
How do you determine your fees?
My goal is to keep my fees as low as possible. Fees go to cover so much more than your hour session. Fees help cover the cost of business insurance, office rent, this website, marketing, licensure, health insurance, dedicated continuing education, telecommunications, and other basic necessities.
Do you accept insurance?
I am in-network for Aetna insurance.
Every insurance plan and policy is unique. It's a good idea to call your insurance provider to be sure any medical provider you choose is in-network for you. I also work with each client to help them understand their coverage and I call Aetna to double-check on coverage before the first session. For more information about insurance, click here.
What if you are not in-network with my insurance provider?
If I am not covered under your insurance plan, I am happy to offer you a written receipt for treatment (known as a Superbill... a funny name for an insurance form) that includes all necessary diagnosis and service codes so that you may request out-of-network reimbursement from your insurance provider. Most clients have good results in getting services partially or fully reimbursed, but I encourage everyone to speak with their insurance provider first.

Do You Offer Online Counseling or Coaching?
Yes! I have moved fully to online counseling and life coaching. My clients love not having to battle traffic, not having to hurry back to work, and not having to deal with concerns about COVID-19. I've found that my clients with busy work schedules and my new mom clients find it especially helpful to gain support without having to drive to a location. Clients report that they enjoy counseling in the comfort of their home or private office and benefit from the flexible scheduling that telehealth offers.
If you are interested in online counseling, please call for a complimentary consultation. Feel free to ask any questions!
All online sessions are conducted on a free, HIPPA-compliant, private platform.
You mentioned coaching. What is coaching like?
If you are in a safe place in your life, but want to have a more fulfilling, enriching life, coaching may be a good solution. Coaching offers more flexible plans and more future-oriented goal setting. Coaching is not covered by insurance, because it does not require a mental health diagnosis. Many people enjoy freedom from a diagnosis-focused approach and find that coaching helps them put newly learned life skills into practice, so they can see their progress faster!
