FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Have a question you’d like to ask? Check out the answers to the FAQs below, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any additional questions.

How do I get started?
After you get in contact with me, we'll have a brief conversation about the concerns you are facing to see if I am the best fit. I will arrange your first appointment and provide information regarding intake forms, payment method, and the ease of online teletherapy.

What will happen at my first appointment?
The first appointment is a chance to get acquainted and for me to share information. I will gather further details on what brings you to therapy and the goals you would like to achieve. I will also address confidentiality and its limits, appointment cancellation, and financial policies.

What does affirming therapy mean?

Affirming therapy does not operate from a deficit model. I meet you where you are. I emphasize your strengths, take into account your needs, and focus on your challenges. I take your lived experience and center it as being intrinsically important to the therapeutic process.

What are my payment options?

I provide a sliding scale to my clients between $100-$150. I utilize a payment system known as Ivy Pay, which is designed for therapists and their clients. Ivy Pay takes credit cards and debit cards as payment methods. I do no take insurance and cannot provide superbills for out-of-network benefits.
