Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
For 47-53 minutes sessions I charge $180 and is pro-rated for longer sessions or shorter check-ins.
Calls less than 15 minutes and less an once a week are included in the fees for sessions. About 25-45% of my clients are sliding scale. When working out a manageable fee: income, rent, dependents (local and international), and bills are considered.
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
UPDATE: All sliding scale appointments are filled. I do not except sliding scale appointments to open before July 2020 or until a new hire is ready to serve our community. If you would like to be put on the waiting list fill free to email me. I will update here and my Open Pathways profile when more slots are available or are open.
Other providers offer sliding scale through Open Pathways Psychotherapy Collective. This is an organization which lists providers willing to offer sessions for $30-$50. Apply to be eligible for this service here.
WHAT INSURANCE DO YOU ACCEPT?
No, my practice does not accept insurance.
I am happy to provide a Superbill so you can utilize your Out of Network (OON) benefits or support you self-advocating for sliding scale rates.
WHAT IS THERAPY LIKE?
It depends on what you want out of it. Meetings can be in an office, over the internet, or phone if requested. The first meetings we get a sense of each other and talk about what you would like to get out of therapy. After that meetings can include: goal setting, laughing, crying, processing the past, present and/or future. I strive to adapt to each individual's life, needs and wants.
Where are you located? What is the space like?
Currently, all sessions are currently REMOTE until further noted.
