Have a question about my office or about therapy in general? You’re in the right place!

Do you accept insurance? What is your cancellation policy? How long does therapy usually last? Does therapy really work? Do I need to be in a relationship to be in sex therapy? What therapy services do you offer? How do I know you’re the right therapist for me?

Do you accept insurance?

I am not in-network with any insurance provider. I provide clients with receipts they can send to their insurance company for reimbursement. To determine your mental health coverage, call your insurance company to ask about “out of network reimbursement rates for psychotherapy.”

Some plans reimburse a large portion of the fee for a high number of sessions, but some plans reimburse less or for fewer sessions. You may also require approval from your primary care physician. Insurance companies are used to answering questions like these, and it should be easy to obtain the answers. If not, let me know how I can be helpful.

What is your cancellation policy?

I require clients to give me 24 hours notice if they need to cancel their appointment. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be billed at full rate.

How long does therapy usually last?

The duration and frequency of therapy depend on presenting issues and motivation of the client(s). According to American Psychological Associations, about 15-20 sessions are required for at least 50% of clients to see significant results.

If a significant amount of time has passed and you haven’t noticed any improvements, it’s important to talk to your therapist to re-evaluate your treatment plan. I am always happy to develop a new treatment plan to help us stay on track or refer you to a better fitting therapist.

Does therapy really work?

You may have heard stories or have the perception therapy is only meant for people with serious mental health problems. However, that is not the case.

I often see mentally healthy individuals and couples who use therapy as check up on their mental health and to explore what they can do to improve their relationships (whether with themselves or their partners). You don't need to be in crisis to seek therapy.

Scientific studies have proven therapy does work - much better than any medication does its own. Therapy is much more than “talking about your problems.” Instead, therapy allows you to develop skills and techniques you can use whenever issues arise. If I believe that medication may be helpful in conjunction with counseling, I can refer you to a psychiatrist with whom I have collaborated in the past.

It’s the perfect way to help you cope with life in a healthy manner. Your therapist helps you work through any issues you may have and provide feedback regularly.

While all clients are different, I can promise you that I will do my best to achieve the goals you’re looking for in a therapist.

Do I need to be in a relationship to be in sex therapy?

Nope! You do not have to be in a relationship to qualify for sex therapy. Sex therapy involves being honest with yourself and how you can improve your quality of life through sex and relationships.

What therapy services do you offer?

I provide a wide range of therapeutic services, including:


How do I know you’re the right therapist for me?

The best way to determine the answer to this question is to schedule an initial consultation with me. We’ll use your first visit to create a rapport and talk about what you are looking for in a therapist.

My number one goal is to make sure you’re healthy, even if that means giving you a referral to another provider.
