free 15 minute PHONE CONSULTATION:

The goal of our phone conversation is for us to briefly meet each other and explore if counseling is a good fit for your needs. Our conversation is a great time for us to meet one another, discuss the process and logistics, and for me to answer any questions you may have.

first session- extended session

I recommend that our first session together be for an extended session (80 minutes) and then we will likely schedule 50 minute follow up sessions. We can discuss if you feel a need for extended sessions. 


My standard rate per 50 minute session is $120 and $180 for an extended session. If my fee is an obstacle in making an appointment please contact me for a phone consultation to discuss.

types of payment accepted:

I accept cash, check, credit cards and health savings account (HSA) cards. 


I am currently a provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO plans. Before scheduling our first session I ask each client with BCBS PPO to contact BCBS (customer service number on back of card) to determine if the client is responsible for a co-pay or a discounted rate applied to his/her deductible each session.

With all other insurance plans it varies if your insurance may offer cover part or all of what is spent in private pay counseling sessions with out-of-network benefits. Insurance companies typically ask for a superbill to reflect payment received and treatment provided- which I can provide to you. With every insurance plan being a bit different, it will be most helpful to check with your insurance company to review your out-of-network mental health benefits.
