Therapy is an Investment in Yourself
I understand that therapy is an investment.
It requires you to show up and be real--even if you don't always feel like it. It involves taking therapy outside the office. Doing the work between sessions.
But by making this commitment, you'll be provided with the space and freedom to experience healing and growth in ways that can profoundly change your life.
Picture becoming a better version of yourself. Starting to shed old habits and beliefs, and replacing them with ones you feel good about. Imagine breaking free of the things that hold you back and starting to live the life you wanted.
You're making a commitment to yourself to learn, heal, grow and change. With collaboration and commitment, there's no limits to what you can accomplish.
By making the decision to go to therapy, you’re ready to do what it takes to start feeling better.

Initial Intake Appointment (90 minutes): $225
The initial EMDR session works different than traditional therapy. It involves more in-depth history taking and assessment given that we're working with trauma. We also have to develop coping skills to help you handle emotional distress. From there, we develop a treatment plan.
Follow Up Sessions (60-75 minutes): $150-$175
These sessions focus on targeting and reprocessing the identified trauma or issue through the use of eye movements (bi-lateral stimulation in EMDR speak). The sessions are repeated until the intensity of the traumatic memory or issue has been significantly reduced and you feel safe and stable. Every case is different, but for a specific incident the average ranges from 6-12 sessions.
Forms of Payment Accepted
I accept cash, checks, all major debit/credit cards, and HSA account debit cards. The Client Portal conveniently stores your credit card information and bills after each session for a seamless transaction.
All appointment changes and cancellations require a 24-hour notice. Appointments are managed through the Client Portal giving you 24/7 access to scheduling and account info.
Cancellations outside the 24-hour window and no-shows are billed the full session rate.
I do not participate with any insurance providers and am considered an out-of-network provider.
If you have out of network benefits (PPO) and choose to access them, you may be eligible for reimbursement.
Your session fee will be paid in full to me and I will provide you with the necessary documentation to submit to your insurance provider. They will reimburse you directly. Typically, out of network benefits cover between 50-80% of the session fee.
Contact your insurance provider to learn more about your benefits and coverage. Here are some questions to ask:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- What is the benefit for out-of-network providers?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Why don't I take insurance?
Simply put, I'm able to offer better care by opting out of managed care programs.
I've narrowed down my practice to a few specialized areas. I also work with specific populations. My expertise benefits you because I'm able to get to the root of your issues quickly and effectively--and help you find relief.
Therapy is no different than any other industry. If you check out the issues treated by most of your insurance provider's in-network therapists, you'll see a long list. A generalist therapist simply can't excel at treating the spectrum of issues that exist today. As the saying goes, "Jack of all trades, master of none."
For your therapy sessions to be fully covered by your insurance company, you must choose one of their contracted providers. That therapist must then assign you a diagnosis. From there, they'll determine the type of treatment that should be used, and how many sessions you're allowed. The insurance company also has the right to ask for access to your file at any time.
Plenty of my clients do not have a diagnosable condition. Instead, they're trying to sort out issues and improve their well-being. Therapy is supposed to be confidential--and many clients don't feel comfortable with their session notes being shared and used to determine whether they meet the insurance company's standard to continue receiving therapy.
