    How does the receipt for insurance work? 

    I highly recommend calling your insurance directly before we start sessions. Ask them what your out-of-network benefits are for mental health care and find out if you have a deductible before coverage starts. Remember, this usually resets each year. Then, find out how much they will reimburse you (usually this is a percentage). You can then use this information to determine how much you will pay and how much your insurance will reimburse. Once you have all of this information and decide to move forward, I will provide you with receipts, and you will submit them directly to your insurance. 

    What age groups do you work with? 

    I currently work with consenting adults who are 18 years or older. Despite my training with the littles, I find it personally challenging to work with kids in a fully virtual format. I fully recommend in-person therapy for kids. 

    I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy “weak?”

    Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, I’ll help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing.

    What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?

    The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, counseling is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about anyone else knowing unless you choose to share that with family and/or friends. 

    What do I have to do in sessions?

    Because each person has different issues and goals for counseling, it will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs, and we will co-create our space together. Showing up is the first step!  

    How long will therapy take?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible to say on a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time counseling can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek counseling in the first place. Generally, I recommend meeting weekly at the beginning, and we can collaborate together when to move to biweekly sessions or monthly check-ins. 

    Do you write Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Letters?

    At the present, I do not. I have not received specific training in human-animal behavior and believe this is outside the scope of my practice. Please contact your primary care physician (PCP) or your psychiatrist, as they may be able to write this type of letter.

    I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?

    I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication will be crucial to your success!
