All the Answers You Need

WILL MY HEALTH INSURANCE COVER THERAPY?

Most major insurance companies are accepted. Please contact me for confirmation about your specific policy.

HOW LONG WILL THE PROCESS TAKE?

Patient Portal setup is approximately 5-10 minutes. Initial appointments vary from 30 to 55 minutes. Following sessions also vary from 30-55 minutes.


HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?

Call, text, or email, whatever is easiest for you. Please note that text and email are not secure methods of communication and thus call is preferred with sensitive information. 

I would love to hear from you!

 

CAN I AFFORD THERAPY?

Yes! In the case of financial hardship, payment arrangements can be made. Please feel free to discuss this when scheduling your appointment.

WHAT IF IT ISN'T A GOOD FIT?

This can happen and it is okay! If after our first meeting you don't feel it is a good fit, no problem. I am happy to provide referrals elsewhere. It is most important you feel a connection with your therapist.

HOW DOES THIS WORK WITH COVID-19?

Currently, all services are also offered via telehealth through a secure and HIPAA compliant patient portal as an alternative to in-person services.
For in person services, proper sanitization and symptom monitoring procedures are in place.
