Why Should I Choose You?
What makes you different than other therapists?
I am high energy, intuitive and am always learning. I constantly look for the newest and best therapies available for our clients, from homework to a new way of thinking about a problem. I was trained in multiple disciplines, from social work to crisis intervention, long term therapy to brief problem-specific therapy. Because of this, I have a ton of resources both in the community and online to supplement and enhance therapy.
What modality do you use? (In other words, how do you therapy?)
I am eclectic, I use what will work with our clients. That being said, I use a base of Cognitive-Behavioral and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in which one will learn why they do what they do and how to change our reactions. I also utilize Narrative, which tells us that everyone has a story and when we change our story, we change our path. For children, I will also use play therapy, in order to help them communicate more effectively.
Fees and Insurance
What are your fees?
My basic fees are $150 for individual, couple or family therapy, for a 50 minute session. There is possibility of sliding scale, depending on availability and need.
Are you an in-network provider for any insurance?
I am an “out of network provider” for insurance networks but will provide you a Superbill which you may use to request reimbursement. The coverage you receive is entirely dependent upon the plan that you have. I recommend that you contact your insurance company directly to determine your specific coverage. Some questions that may be helpful in this conversation include:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits that cover psychotherapy?
- Does my policy cover an out of network Licensed Psychologist? If so, what percentage is covered or what is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- Are my medical and mental health/behavioral health deductibles separate?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- Does the diagnosis matter? Are some diagnoses covered and others not?
- What paperwork or forms do I need to submit for sessions to be covered?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
