Q: What kind of problems do you treat?
A: While I specialize in treating eating disorders, I will work with you to address any problems getting in the way of your happiness. We can work on problems related to family and other relationships, poor body image, low self-esteem, career stress, and trauma. I offer long-term therapy for those in need of ongoing support, as well as solution-focused therapy for individuals looking for a more short-term experience. I offer individual, family, and group therapy services.
Q: What type of therapy do you practice?
A: I use an "eclectic approach," which means that I use incorporate several treatment modalities based on your unique needs. I typically use a blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and psychodynamic techniques into sessions to help you reach your therapeutic goals. Beyond theory, I feel strongly that there is healing power in being present with you, listening to you, and truly hearing what what you have to say.
Q: How do I schedule an appointment?
A: You can scroll up to click on the "Contact" page above, or scroll down to click on the "Book A Free Consultation Call" button. Fill out a contact form and I will get in touch with you to schedule a free 15 minute phone consultation before you commit to your first appointment. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, and I will be able to learn more about you and why you are seeking therapy. If we are a good fit and you'd like to schedule a session, we will discuss rates, insurance, and scheduling.
Q: Do you take insurance?
A: Like most specialty providers, I am primarily out-of-network. This means that I do not participate in most insurance plans. If your insurance plan offers out-of-network benefits, you can receive reimbursement for up to 80% of the cost of each session. This turns out to be about the same as the cost of a co-pay. I will send you a monthly Superbill that you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
Not sure if you have out-of-network benefits?
Your out-of-network benefits are usually listed in the Summary of Benefits information on your insurance company’s website. Or you can call your insurance company directly and they will be able to tell you!
Q: How much does therapy cost?
A: I charge $250 for a 45-minute therapy session and $150 for group therapy sessions.
Private pay therapy is a great option for many reasons:
-You will receive maximum privacy and confidentiality
-You will be able to continue working with me if you experience changes to your insurance plan!
-I offer specialized treatment for eating disorders and will collaborate with you and your family/supporters.
-I use a multi-disciplinary approach and will collaborate with your clinical team (dietitian, psychiatrist, and other medical providers.)
-I will be accommodating to your schedule and your needs!
Q: Do you offer sliding scale rates?
Yes! I offer a limited number of sliding scale appointments.
Q: What if I have to cancel or reschedule?
A: Life happens and things come up: this is normal! If you are unable to attend an appointment, I request that you provide at least 24 hours advanced notice. Please note that you will be billed for the full cost of your session if your appointment is not cancelled within the 24 hour window.
