I specialize in working with individual young adults (ages 18-40), having worked in two university counseling centers during my training, as well as working in non-profit programs supporting young adults prior to seeking my MSW. Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship challenges, grief and loss, life transitions, or identity exploration? These are some of the reasons people seek counseling with me. I help clients wrestle with shame and vulnerability and improve communication in their relationships. Together we will seek to clarify your values and help you make committed choices towards the change you want to make in your life. I especially enjoying working with individuals exploring questions related to gender identity or sexuality, and other aspects of identity development.
Many of us experience barriers to seeking therapy, whether it is shame and stigma or financial. Considering beginning therapy can feel risky and vulnerable, and yet is a step in valuing your own worth. If you are wondering if counseling could help, or if I could be the right fit to work with you, please contact me for a free phone consultation.
Fees & Insurance
My fee is $130 for a 45-50min therapy session, or $160 for 80min.
If you wish to use insurance, I can provide a receipt (called a “super bill”) for you to seek reimbursement from your insurance company if you have “out-of-network benefits” for outpatient mental health services. Please contact your insurance company directly to inquire about your benefits. It may be helpful for you to ask:
- Do I have to meet a deductible before I can be reimbursed? If so what is that amount?
- What is the rate of reimbursement (% of the fee that will be covered)?
- How long will it take for me to receive my reimbursement after I submit my receipt?
- Where do I need to send my receipts?
- Do my benefits cover online counseling?
I will do what I can to help you with you verify your insurance benefits and seek reimbursement. However, you are responsible for the fee at the time of service. Some people like to use a service to help them navigate the reimbursement process. Better is a company that created a secure app to help you get the most out of your benefits and finds the money your health insurance owes you. File claims simply by taking a photo of your health bill. Get paid back by your health insurance for your out-of-network therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic care, medical care, and more.
I also offer a limited number of reduced fee spots for those with limited income who are not able to use insurance benefits. Please contact me to inquire about availability if you are in need.
Please note that 24 hour advance cancellation of scheduled appointments is required in order to avoid being billed for a missed session.
