Can I use my health insurance to pay for therapy?
At this time, I am in-network with Optum and UnitedHealthcare. I am currently in the process of getting credentialed with other insurance companies. Please check back for updates.
Who can benefit from going to therapy?
Literally anyone can benefit from going to therapy. There is this misconception in our society that therapy is only for certain people and that if you go to therapy it means something is wrong with you. Nothing could be further from the truth. Therapy gives you an outside perspective to help you navigate everyday challenges and make the changes you want to make in your life.
How much does therapy cost?
My current self-pay fee is $125 per 50-minute therapy session. Please see question below if you are interested in using your health insurance to pay for therapy.
What can I expect at the first session?
The first session will be an initial assessment to discuss your history and needs for therapy. During this first session, you will have the opportunity to see how therapy will work, review office policies, privacy and confidentiality, as well as determine whether or not you are comfortable with the therapist.
How long does a therapy session take?
Sessions are typically scheduled for 50 minutes and most people see their therapist once a week for consistent progress to be made. This will be discussed during the first session to come up with a scheduling plan that you feel comfortable with.
Where do I go for my therapy appointments?
At this time, I am offering telehealth appointments via a secure videoconferencing platform. The day before each appointment, you will receive a notification with the unique link.
How many sessions will I need?
This depends completely on what you are looking to accomplish in therapy. Some people may attend therapy weekly for months while others may attend only a handful of sessions.
