Notice of Good Faith Estimate
Fees & Payment
I charge $200 for 50-minute psychotherapy and consultation sessions. Payment is due at the time of service unless prior alternative arrangements have been made.
I offer a sliding scale to candidates-in-training.
Notice of Good Faith Estimate is included in my Intake Form.
If you wish to use insurance for your mental health treatment, I will provide you with a receipt to file with your insurance company.
Please note that I have opted out of Medicare.
I am currently offering only clinical case consultation and peer consultation for mental health professionals seeking these services.
I work with people seeking help with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship problems, multicultural concerns, spiritual issues and life transitions (relocation, divorce, empty nest, employment change, aging, death and dying).
While ameliorating the symptoms of many of these issues can be addressed in short term therapy, I also offer more in-depth analytic treatment to address longstanding complex and faulty beliefs and the behavior and relationship patterns that result from those beliefs.
I offer couples therapy to individuals in both traditional and nontraditional unions. Couples may use therapy at different points in their relationship: starting out, in the midst of it, or when one or both participants decide to end it. Conscientious couples' work can remedy some problems at the start and positively change problems in communication and power struggles throughout a relationship.
