Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept Insurance?

I currently accept Aetna insurance and will be credentialed with BCBS in July 2024. For those with other insurance companies I can provide you with a Superbill that you can submit to your insurance for potential reimbursement after paying out of pocket.

I'm partnered with Open Path Collective to provide limited number of sliding scale openings. You can use the link to register. 

What is a Superbill? 

A Superbill is a detailed receipt for services by an Out of Network provider. As an active client a Superbill can be generated through your client portal, which you will then submit to your insurance company.

 

Insurance requires that I provide a diagnosis as a reason for your treatment. They will determine the necessity and length of therapy. If you choose to use your out of network benefits we will discuss your diagnosis during our session before you submit your superbill.

Payment

Clients must have a credit card on file to schedule appointments. Charges are processed the morning of your session, made through the third party provider I use in conjunction with my Electronic Health Record practice management system. 

Cancellations

I have a strict 24 hour cancellation policy, outlined in my consent for treatment. This gives me the opportunity to offer the appointment time to other clients and adjust my schedule as needed. I hold myself to the same expectations to honor your appointment time. 

Scheduling and hours

After the first appointment, active clients schedule their own appointments through my practice management system. I offer availability between the hours of 9:00am-3:00pm. 

Do I need therapy?

Doesn't everyone? Kidding! Mostly. If you landed here there's probably something that's been bothering you. Therapy gives you the opportunity to figure out what's keeping you stuck. Developing insight is never time wasted. 

I want to do the therapy! Now what? 

Awesome! I can't wait to chat with you and start figuring shit out! Start by clicking here to fill out the contact form. If it seems like we'll be a good fit I'll send you a Welcome email with more information and the option to schedule a 10 minute consultation before we get started. The email will also contain instructions to register an account though my client portal to start your intake forms.

 

If you're coping with issues that are outside my area of expertise or specialty I'll provide you with some referrals that might be a better match.
