Frequently Asked Questions


How do I set up an appointment?:

You can book your appointment online or contact us directly to schedule an appointment.  It is important that you feel comfortable with a therapist in order for the sessions to be most effective.  If you would like to arrange an initial phone consultation, we can discuss briefly what you hope to get out of therapy and determine whether or not we would be a good fit.  If you prefer to come in right away, we can figure that out during the first appointment instead.

How long are sessions?

Sessions generally last about 60 minutes.  The frequency of sessions will vary, based on your individual needs.  Some people may need to come once a week, while others may need biweekly support.  The frequency of sessions may change during the course of treatment, depending on your concerns and how you are coping.    


What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, check, and credit cards.  I am in network with Cigna and out of network with all other insurance.  I can either provide you with receipts to submit to your insurance for reimbursement or I can bill the insurance company directly.  I'm happy to discuss these options more with you.  Your insurance plan may cover part or all of my fee, depending on your out of network coverage.  To find out the details of your coverage, please call your insurance company before your first appointment and ask about your out of network mental health benefits.  Some things you'll want to ask are:

  • Do I have a deductible?  If so, how much has been met so far?
  • How much will be covered per session?
  • Do I need authorization?
  • Is there a limit to the number of sessions per year?   
  • How do I submit receipts for reimbursement?
