Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you take insurance?

A: I am not in-network with any insurance company but you may be able to use your out-of-network benefits. I can provide you with a superbill which you can submit to your insurance company for partial reimbursement. Clients are responsible for calling their insurance company to find out more about using their out-of-network benefits and are responsible for payment at the time of service.

Q: Do you have a sliding scale fee available?

A: I do not offer a sliding scale but I can offer a superbill which you can submit to your insurance company for partial reimbursement if you would like to use your out-of-network benefits. Please check with your insurance company on what that would mean for you since every insurance company and plan is different.

Q: Will there be homework?

A: We will work at whatever pace is most comfortable for you. Like any skill, daily practice will lead to the fastest, most effective progress. Imagine learning to play a musical instrument: if you play only at your lesson you will eventually play a song, but if you practice daily you’ll be making beautiful music more quickly. I will offer you exercises and opportunities for practice at home and respect your decision regarding how much you practice between sessions.

Q: Do you have in-person sessions?

A: At this time, all sessions are virtual.

Q: Do you have evening and weekend hours available?

A: Yes, I have evening hours available and limited weekend hours.

Q: Do you see children?

A: I specialize in treating adults but may consider an older teen if it’s a good fit.

Q: What is your cancellation policy?

A: My policy is to charge my full fee for the session unless I receive at least 24 hours cancellation notice. When I am scheduling, I am reserving a time specifically for you, and it is very difficult to fill on short notice. If you have any special circumstances or reasons you may not be unable to work within these perimeters, please let me know in advance. Emergencies such as sudden illness of you or a child or other emergencies will be considered.
