  • What are sessions like?
    Sessions are 55 minutes long. We will meet via a HIPAA compliant (meaning it is safe and private) video call. Sessions will look different for everyone. Sessions include exploration of emotions, processing of current stressors, reflections about the past and its influence on the present, practice of coping skills, real time relaxation exercises, and more. We will work together to tailor each session to you because one size does not fit all.
  • Do you do telehealth or in person sessions?
    I do all telehealth sessions. I find that telehealth allows for flexibility that makes therapy more accessible to more people. After seeing clients both in person and virtually over the course of my work, I find that virtual therapy leads to just as deep of connections and an experience as in person sessions do.
  • How does scheduling work?
    We will work together to find a time that works for the both of us. Once we have determined what day and time that is, you will have a standing appointment at that time each week. The spot is reserved for you so that you are able to have consistent treatment. I think therapy works best if we meet weekly at first so I can get to know you more deeply and we can begin making progress sooner. Once progress is made, we may reduce sessions to biweekly or monthly if you would like to. We will work together collaboratively to track progress and determine the frequency of sessions that is best for you.
  • How do I get started?
    You can fill out the contact form below or give me a call and we will schedule a free 15 minute consultation. At that point, we will get to know each other and decide if we are a good fit for one another. Assuming we both feel like it is a good fit, we can schedule an intake session and begin therapy!
  • How do I know if you will be a good therapist match for me?
    The reason I offer free 15-minute phone consultations is because I want us to chat and get a feel for each other. A good therapy match means that the therapist understands and is competent in treating your presenting issue AND that you like and trust them. I find that clients tend to know pretty quickly whether or not a therapist is a good fit for them personality-wise, and it is the therapist’s job to tell you if they are a good fit for your clinical needs. During our phone call, I will assess if I am the best fit for your concerns and explain my style of therapy. If we think it is a good match, we will schedule an intake appointment. If I am not the best fit for your needs, I am happy to provide you with referrals to other therapists that may better fit your needs. The therapeutic relationship is healing in itself. Being a good match is so important to therapy. I feel grateful to my clients who work with me and trust me as their therapist and value the connection we have. I look forward to the connections that will be created with future clients.
  • What is the benefit of seeing a therapist with a specialty in my presenting concerns?
    Therapists can be generalists or have specialties. I was originally trained as a generalist, with a concentration in health psychology, and therefore have competency in many aspects of psychological wellbeing. However, I have a special interest in working with folks who have chronic illnesses, chronic pain, are navigating their reproductive health and parenting, or have experienced trauma. Due to my interests, I have placed a special emphasis in my training and clinical work on these specialties. If you are someone who is experiencing difficulties related to those topics, seeing a psychologist with specialized experience can make a very positive impact on treatment. There are aspects of your experiences that a therapist without those specialties may not know to ask and assess about or may neglect to consider in the big picture of your functioning. My understanding of the nuances of your difficulties can help you make better progress than you would with a therapist that lacks that deeper understanding.
  • Do you take insurance?
    I am an out-of-network provider. This means that I do not participate directly with insurance networks. You may have out of network benefits through your insurance provider, in which case you may submit for reimbursement. To see my fees and understand why I have made the choice to be an out of network provider please see the fees and insurance page in the menu.
  • Do you prescribe medication?
    I am a psychologist, and, in the vast majority of states, psychologists are not able to prescribe medication. A psychiatrist is a physician that can prescribe medication. If you take medication or are interested in taking medication for your mental health, I will work closely with your prescriber to ensure we are working together as a team to manage your health. Once we begin working together, you may sign a release of information form that allows me to speak with your prescriber. Additionally, they will also have you sign a release of information form so that they are allowed to speak with me.
