Therapist's note

-Initial consultation is free.

-Standard fees after initial consult are $110-$160 per 50 minute individual counseling or coaching session, and $150-$210 per 90 minute dyad session for those wanting support in intimate relationships.

-You may choose your fee within this range, and are free to change your fee from session to session within the stated range. Alternatively, you may choose to set up autopayment to be billed the same rate after each session.

-I do not accept insurance. This offers more privacy for you, less need to diagnose, and more flexibility in our work together.

-Sessions are available via telehealth. I use doxy.me for all video sessions and appointments for a high level of data security and HIPAA compliance.
