Therapy is an investment.

Invest in yourself, your relationships & your future.

Your mind, better known as Bitchy Betty, is constantly telling saying, "You aren't worth it. You can't afford the time, energy or financial investment. Why the hell bother anyway? t's never going to get better anyway." We are anxious and afraid, which is normal. 


Therapy can help. You are worth investing in yourself! 

don't let negative self talk or poor self-esteem talk over

Learning to make yourself a priority.

Your mind, better known as Bitchy Betty, is constantly telling saying, "You aren't worth it. You can't afford the time, energy or financial investment. Why the hell bother anyway...it's never going to get better anyway."


It's time to tell Bichy Better to shut the hell up. YOU are worth it.


The truth is we are extremely anxious or afraid to try. "What if you go to counseling and it doesn't help? I can't handle failing. What little hope I have left will be completely crushed!"


As a therapist, I've NEVER worked with a person who didn't make progress. Although the amount of progress varies from person to person, progress IS progress. ALL progress MATTERS. I encourage you to celebrate EVERY step forward. Each time your assertive, say no, meet your needs, put yourself first, go to coffee with a friend...just show up to our sessions...is Major! Revel in your achomplishment and success.

Services & Fees

Psychotherapy is an investment in yourself. The grow you make in therapy lasts a lifetime.

The cost of sessions depends on the length of sessions. The first session, otherwise referred to as the Intake Session, allows for a 90-minute appointment. I have found providing additional time is ideal. This allows you adequate time to ask questions, disclose information and your history, as well as beginning to clarify your goals for therapy. The cost of this initial appointment is double the rate of a standard 50-minute session. This fee covers the increased amount of time spent together in session as well as the work I do behind the scenes to get you started! The follow up 50-minute session, is $125. If you would like additional time, 30-minute adds on are $65.


Evening appointments are available. These slots have some limited availability. Please contact me and inquire.

Simple. Quick. Secure.

Insurance

Please be aware that, I do not directly work with insurance. companies.

I chose to work with individuals (you), not for insurance companies.

Out-Of-Network Benefits

If you choose to use your Out-Of-Network Insurance Benefits, I will provide you with a receipt of services, also known as a “Superbill.” You may then submit this to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Utilizing insurance is your choice. 


Please be aware your insurance provider may choose to cover all, some or none of these services. Therefore, before your first session, I suggest you contact your insurance company to verify your out-of-network coverage of outpatient mental health services.

How do I use my Out-Of-Network Benefits?

Contact your health insurance provider directly to verify your Out-of-Network Benefits for Counseling and Mental Health Services. Here are some questions can ask to help understand your benefits and reimbursement for psychotherapy services.

Questions to ask your Health Insurance Provider:

  • Does my health insurance plan include Out-of-Network Mental Health Benefits?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician for services to be covered?
  • What percentage of my Out-of-Network Mental Health Services will be covered if I submit a Superbill?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it? Have I met my deductible yet?
  • Is there a limit to how many sessions I can have per the calendar year? If so, what is the limit?
  • How do I get reimbursed? How often should I submit a Superbill? What is the process for submitting a Superbill? 

Late Cancellation & No-Show Policy

I am committed to helping you. I am invested in our relationship. I ask you to be equally invested

You will be charged the full fee for canceled or rescheduled sessions with less than 24 hours’ notice.


When you enter into therapy with me, I commit to you. I asked you to be equally invested in the process and our relationship.


First, I reserve the same day and time for our weekly appointment. 


Second, I limit the amount of clients I choose to work with at any given time, allowing me to serve you best and meet your needs. As a therapist it’s essential I live what I teach my clients. 


Third, there a lot I do behind the scenes outside of our counseling sessions which helps serve you better. The time and energy I put into reading, gathering and preparing for our time together are beneficial to you. 


Finally, I am committed to going above and beyond to help you. I am available between sessions if something comes up in your life. You might need a quick check-in, a sooner appointment or another resource. 


When appropriate, I also will research and give you additional tools, information and other resources tailored to you. These might be worksheets, workbooks, handouts, articles, suggested apps, books, groups, etc. Many of my clients appreciate these resources as they serve to inform, normalize, and empower them as they move towards the life they want to live.


I value and respect you and your time. I am committed to your healing process. I only ask the same in return. If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment for any reason, I am more than happy to accommodate your needs.
