Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions will I need? 

Length of treatment is determined by multiple factors. I offer both time-limited and long-term psychotherapy, with the primary goal of collaborating with you to design a treatment plan to fit your needs and circumstances.

Is therapy confidential?

It is my ethical and legal duty to maintain the confidentiality of your treatment, except in a few limited cases either mandated or permitted by law. I take these duties extremely seriously; even in cases where I am authorized or mandated to disclose your personal information, I make every effort to be transparent with you about the process, offer opportunities to ask questions and address concerns, and disclose the minimum amount of information necessary to fulfill the purpose of the disclosure. Please see the practice Notice of Privacy Practices form below for additional detail: 

 

 

Can I use insurance? 

I am an out-of-network provider, meaning that I do not currently have a contract with any health insurance carriers. This minimizes the amount of information about your mental health care that I am required to disclose and gives us more flexibility with your treatment. Many insurance policies offer out-of-network benefits, which will cover a substantial portion of psychotherapy fees. Psychotherapy is commonly covered by Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) plans. If you are interested in seeking reimbursement, I recommend verifying your current benefits prior to initiating services. I can provide you with detailed invoices that include the information required for the claims, which includes a diagnosis code. Please know I welcome and encourage conversations about billing and insurance to support you in making the most informed and financially sustainable decision possible for your care.
