Why is your practice virtual?
For daytime sessions, it is often more convenient for couples to hop on a therapy call then take the time to drive, rush through traffic, park, etc. and come to a session. Also, I work with couples who are often caring for young children and this eliminates the barrier of finding childcare to attend in person sessions. I believe virtual therapy is a very accessible way to provide mental health.
How long are your sessions?
Typical counseling sessions last 45 minutes. However, I can make extended session times available based on therapeutic needs.
Do you offer an initial consultation?
Yes. I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation prior to the first appointment. The purpose of the call is to learn a little bit about you and what brings you to therapy, and to assess whether we are a good fit. You are welcome to ask any questions you wish during the call.
Do you take insurance or not?
I do not accept insurance because insurance companies often dictate what services clients receive and how many sessions they will cover. I feel this is unfair to our clients to allow an outside entity to dictate how many sessions will bring change, and this policy can often hinder the growth we can achieve together.
How do I set up an appointment?
Call or email me today to set up your initial appointment.
How does payment work?
Part of my payment policy, outlined in the full informed consent you sign when beginning therapy, requires a credit card to be held on file. This gets charged at the end of our session together. I find this keeps money discussions out of the therapy room and makes it easier and more comfortable for everyone.
What is your cancellation policy?
Clients should notify their therapist via email or phone of any cancellation or need to reschedule a minimum of 48 hours before their appointment time. If you cancel within those 48 hours, you will be charged for your appointment.
What else does a client need to know to make the most out of working with you?
Come to therapy! Coming to therapy consistently will be important to make the changes you desire.
Often, clients feel frustration from the lack of change but come to therapy only once a month. Consistent attendance can mean consistent change.
Dogs or cats?
I have both, but dogs have my heart!
