Do you take insurance? Will my benefits cover my therapy?

Most insurance and employee benefits plans will cover psychotherapy with a registered psychotherapist. Please, consult with your insurer to confirm your coverage. I will provide you with a detailed receipt, after payment, that you can submit to your insurer for reimbursement.

What can I expect in my first session with you?

You can expect me to listen to your concerns non-judgmentally. I will ask you questions about yourself, your life, and any symptoms that you may have been experiencing. Together we'll establish goals for therapy.

How long is a session? How many sessions will I need?

A standard therapy session is 50 minutes in length and scheduled weekly or bi-weekly. Each person’s situation is unique, therefore the length of therapy depends on the presenting issue.

Do I need a referral from my doctor to see you?

You do not require a referral.
