How long and how many times a week is a typical session?
Sessions are 50 minutes. Most clients are seen 1-3 times a week in the beginning, and then as time goes on, less frequently.
What is the cost per session?
Please inquire directly about current session fees. We accept checks, cash, and major credit cards.
Do you take Insurance?
I am not in network with any insurance companies. I am happy to provide a super-bill for monthly sessions which you can submit to your insurance company to petition for reimbursement. Reimbursement for out of network providers depends on your benefits and coverage.
What can I expect in my first session?
Our first session is an intake and assessment to determine whether we are a good fit. We will discuss what brings you to therapy, and I will provide an honest assessment as to whether I can be of help to you. I will gather history from your childhood, and learn other important background information to provide context for your present situation. You will also have an opportunity to ask me any questions.
What is a Good Faith Estimate under the No Suprises Act?
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under the law, commonly known as the No Surprises Act, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. It is recommended that once you receive your good faith estimate you keep a copy for your records or take a picture for future reference. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate,

Do you accept sliding scale payments?
We provide a limited amount of reduced fee services for those in need, including: students, single parents, patients who are recent victims of crime, and individuals working in social justice related fields. Our practice provides pro-bono services for refugees and asylum seekers.
