Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I “need” therapy?
Anyone can benefit from the introspective nature of therapy. I believe it’s fundamentally important for all of us to connect with ourselves through mindfulness and meditation. A lot of times in life, we’ve very outwardly focused -- worried about the opinions of others, stressed about work. Therapy can be a time to have a conversation with yourself -- to check in on your own feelings.

How much will this cost?
For others who might have different insurance coverage, I provide you with a receipt (called a “Superbill”) that you can submit to your insurance company for any reimbursement you may be expecting. The billing receipt provided to you will include necessary diagnostic and procedural codes for submission. Some clients can reclaim all or some of their expenditures for treatment through their insurance depending on their individual insurance plans.
Feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this process.
What if I can’t reach you in an emergency?
What are some additional resources for anxiety or depression online? Do you have any recommended reading, or tools I should utilize outside of therapy to improve myself?
What are the age ranges with whom you work?
I work with adolescents age 13 and above. I work with adults and older adults. I work with individuals, couples and families.
Do you provide video online therapy?
Yes! I use a FREE and private (encrypted) video conferencing platform that you can easily upload and utilize for online therapy. Video or online therapy is not usually covered by commercial insurance, but I will provide to you an invoice containing all the information you would need to submit to your insurance company for any reimbursement you may have available to you with your particular insurance plan. In addition, I have other FREE and private text platforms to keep in touch between therapy sessions or for you to provide feedback to me about your treatment session, or if you would like to alert me to a topic you wish to address at your next scheduled treatment session.
