You will be expected to pay for your session on the day you are scheduled unless we agree otherwise. Therapy sessions are paid via credit card, debit card, or Health Savings Account debit cards. Your credit card information is stored securely on your HIPPA compliant client portal.

Please keep in mind that I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. A minimum of 24-hour notice is required for canceled or missed sessions or you will be charged your entire fee. 

What to expect?

During our initial 30 minutes free consultation, we will have a chance to discuss online therapy, ask each other questions, and see if we are a good fit. After we have decided to work together, I will send you the intake paperwork and coordinate our schedules to find a time that works for both of us.


For Individual Therapy, the initial session will be between 50 - 60 minutes. During this time, we will review your completed paperwork and discuss the limits of confidentiality. I will gather information to ensure that I have a proper understanding of your history. I will ask questions that will allow me to understand better what brings you into therapy. We will discuss some initial goals and mutual expectations of treatment. This is also a time for you to ask questions and get to know one another. Return appointments will be 50 minutes. During this time, we will work together on your goals. We will check in regularly to ensure that you are progressing and make adjustments if needed. 

For co-parenting counseling, the initial session will be 50-60 minutes. During that time we will review your intake paperwork and any current court documents that pertain to my role as your co-parenting counselor. We will discuss goals and the process of co-parenting therapy. 

For Private Mediation, PCCRC, and 3111Evaluations, the initial session will be between 90 to 120 minutes. During this time, we will review your completed intake paperwork and discuss the limits of confidentiality. If warranted, I will review any current court documents associated with the case and gain a clear understanding of the courts' expectations during our time together. After the initial session, we will determine the duration of the subsequent sessions.

Contacting me through this site does not create a therapist-client relationship. The relationship will begin after we have had our initial consultation, all Intake paperwork is completed, and we have set our first session.

Do you take insurance? 

In short, the answer is no. 

I do not take insurance; I am, however, an "out of network provider."

If your insurance allows, I can provide you with a Superbill. Then, you can contact your insurance provider directly to see if your specific policy will cover your sessions. Here are a few questions that will guide you through the process. 


  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits that cover psychotherapy?

  • Does my policy cover an out-of-network Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist? If so, what percentage is covered, or what is the coverage amount per therapy session?

  • What is my deductible, and has it been met?

  • Are my medical and mental health/behavioral health deductibles separate?

  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

  • Does the diagnosis matter? Are some diagnoses covered and others not?

  • What paperwork or forms do I need to submit for sessions to be covered?

  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Why online therapy?

Research has shown that Telehealth has the same effect as face-to-face therapy for adults, adolescents, and teens being treated for some of the more common mental health concerns. However, traditional face-to-face therapy does not provide some of the benefits that Telehealth does. 
Please refer to the  About Online Therapy section of my website for additional information about Telehealth and whether or not it is a good fit for you.

Right to a Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" explaining how much your medical care will cost. 

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don't have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. 

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. 

  •  Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimates in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. 

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. 

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosuprise or call 1-800-985-3058.
