FAQs

How Do I Get Started?
Please contact me to set up an initial appointment. The client-therapist relationship is the most important part of therapy so I encourage you to “interview” me during our first session together so that you can make an informed decision as to whether you feel we can work together.

What can I expect in a therapy session?
Every therapy session is unique and caters to each individual and his/her own specific goals. During a therapy session it is standard to discuss the primary concerns in your life and to then explore ways for healing and transformation.

It is common to schedule a series of weekly sessions, which are 50 minutes in length. Sometimes individuals or couples who are going through a particular difficult challenge may request more time per session, or more than one session a week.

What Do I bring to my first session?
Once your first session is booked, you will bring the specified forms under the “Printable Forms” tab. Please also bring a copy of your insurance card as well as any pertinent health records.

What Type of Payment is Accepted?
I accept cash, check, and credit card. I also accept the following insurances:

  • Aetna
  • Anthem BC/BS
  • Humana
  • Medicaid
  • Multiplan
  • Tricare/MHN
  • Trilogy
  • UMR
  • UnitedHealthCare
  • WEA

Do you prescribe medication?
As licensed professional counselor, I am not authorized to prescribe. In cases where I believe medication may be appropriate to consider, I will refer you to a physician for an assessment. For clients already under a physician’s care, I will work closely with that professional to ensure that care is coordinated.
