Questions & Answers
Questions About Therapy
What is you approach when working with clients?
So glad you asked! Each therapy modality offers so much so I tend to use elements from the ones I’ve been trained in: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, & Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. These are all considered evidenced based so we know they work!
Do I need therapy?
We all go through challenging situations and experiences. Sometimes we get stuck and don’t live a fulfilling life or we're not where we expected to be in life, or might be struggling with relationships. With that said, sometimes we need an “outsider” to talk to, to help problem solve, to provide insight & awareness and help us navigate through life.
What can therapy do for me?
Therapy can do many things including the following: change hard to break habits, change ineffective communication patterns, change those thoughts that make you feel inadequate/depressed/anxious/hopeless/worthless, increase your confidence, gain a voice, discover your strengths that you may not know exist, increase your self awareness, and learn ways to cope with stressors presenting in life. Overall we want to increase the quality of your life; I want you to have a life worth living.
How often should I come in to therapy?
For new clients, I typically recommend you come in once per week especially for the first month or two. We will monitor your progress and taper down to once every two weeks then eventually once a month.
How long until I notice a difference?
The length of time depends on what you’re currently challenged with and how frequently and consistently you’re able to come in.

Questions About Insurance and Payment Options
How much does therapy cost?
Initial appointment is $140 thereafter it is $125. Sessions are 50-55 minutes. If you’re using insurance, co-pay will vary based on your plan.
Do you take my insurance?
I am in network with Aetna, BCBS, and Cigna. If you’re not insured with either of these two carriers, you may still be able to use your out of network benefits by providing them with a “super bill” which I am happy to provide you. Some people prefer not to involve their insurance company and pay for services directly. I am glad to discuss any questions you may have about insurance or self-pay options.
What type of payment do you take?
You can pay for your session with cash, any major credit card, check, or FSA (Flexible Spending Account) or HSA (Health Spending Account) in the form of a credit card.
