getting started


Contact me to set up a phone consultation via my contact form. We'll discuss what your needs and goals in therapy are to see if I am a good fit for you. Please have questions in mind that you'd like to ask about my practice at that time before scheduling our first session.


Next, we'll schedule an initial intake session where we can discuss in more depth the issues you'd like to address in therapy.  I will email you the necessary documents to fill out, scan and email back to me before our first session.

Every person or couple's needs are different, but generally therapy lasts from 3-9 months, depending on the nature and severity of the issues you need to address. I have found that weekly or every-other-week sessions are ideal, as the flow between sessions is optimal for meeting your needs, but we can create a schedule that works for you. Once we've terminated therapy, the door is always open for mental health 'tune-ups' as issues come up in your life.

Schedule availability: Monday 12-8 pm, Tuesday 12-8 pm, Wednesday 12-8 pm, Thursday 12-6:30 pm

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, I am only conducting sessions via telehealth or phone calls until further notice. 


My professional fee is $150 per 50-minute individual session and $230 per 80-minute individual/ couples/ family session.


My sessions last either 50 or 80 minutes. I use the last ten minutes of the hour to finish clinical notes and prepare for my next client, including you. If you request a referral, summary, report, letter or professional consultation with an outside party (e.g. another therapist), you will be billed for any time necessary to prepare documentation, and to conduct an in-person or phone consultation.


I accept payments via debit/ credit cards or FSA/HSA (flexible or health spending account) cards at the beginning of each session through Ivy Pay, a HIPAA compliant card processing system to process payments.. 


I do not accept insurance payments, but I can provide a monthly statement of services for you to submit to your insurance company as an out-of-network provider. Please check with your insurance company for possible availability of out-of-network mental health benefits. I do not carry outstanding balances.


An appointment means that specific time is reserved for you. It is my policy to receive a cancellation notice at least 48 hours in advance. Changes made within 48 hours or no-shows will result in being charged the full fee, as I may be unable to schedule another appointment at that time.
