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 by phone 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 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 are my payment options?
I have a very reasonable private pay sliding scale of $100-$150 and I can provide superbills for you to receive reimbursement from your insurance company. Please note: clients often use the private pay option because insurance providers can limit your number of sessions, request your confidential records, and retroactively deny your insurance claims. When asking for a superbill, first check with your insurance company for their reimbursement coverage policies for Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapists.
How often can I go to therapy?
Generally, 50-minute sessions are conducted each week at the same day and time. However, under certain circumstances, sessions may be increased upon request and availability.
