Frequently Asked Questions
Online Psychotherapy*: $275 per 50-minute session
I can provide a "super bill" after each therapy session if you'd like to seek out-of-network coverage from your insurance. If you have good out-of-network benefits, your insurance company may reimburse you as much as 80% of each session fee, depending on your plan. I recommend using Thesuperbill.com for free help with out-of-network billing.
*For residents of California, Minnesota, Arkansas, and Florida only
I can't afford the cost of therapy, do you offer a sliding scale?
For therapy, I do offer a limited sliding scale based on need. Priority is given to people of the global majority. All sliding scale spots are currently claimed.
Do you offer free consultations?
Yes, I offer free 15-minute consultations to explore if we are a good fit. You can request a 15-minute consultation here. I encourage you to read my blog and other media to make sure that the type of therapy and coaching services I provide are what you are looking for.
Where do sessions take place?
All psychotherapy is conducted virtually over Zoom. All of my online psychotherapy clients must reside in California, Arkansas, Florida or Minnesota. I offer coaching worldwide via telehealth video.
Are you accepting new clients?
Therapy: My therapy practice frequently has openings. Please check the therapy inquiry page for details.
How long does each session take?
Online Psychotherapy services are all provided in 50 minute sessions.
Do you accept insurance?
I do not take insurance. For therapy clients, I am happy to provide you with a monthly statement so you can seek reimbursement if your insurance provider covers a portion of your out-of-network care. HMO’s do not provide reimbursement for out of network, but PPO providers often cover 60-80% of the cost.
What's the difference between coaching and therapy?
I want to start therapy with you, what is the first step I need to take?
The difference between coaching and therapy is the focus area. Coaching is future-oriented and solution focused while psychotherapy can have a number of goals including healing trauma, managing complicated relationships, dealing with intrusive thoughts, etc. Psychotherapy is clinical and I can work with a number of complex clinical issues such as depression, anxiety, OCD, etc while coaching does not address clinical issues and is focused on personal growth and goal achievement. Coaching is not clinical and is not considered mental health care.
