It can be a vulnerable experience calling a therapist for the first time. In order to determine what type of therapy will suit your needs, you can call me for an initial free( 30 minute) phone consultation. This way you can get a feel for my style and approach and I can asses your needs and expectations.We can then collaborate on your therapeutic goals or if the fit isn't appropriate, I can refer you to other professional therapists.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations made with less than 48 hours prior to your appointment are charged at the full rate of the session.
Insurance: I am not on any health insurance panels however, If your insurance provider allows you to choose an out-of-network provider (PPO plan), I will gladly provide you with a statement so you may seek reimbursement. Please check with your provider about coverage and rates of reimbursement.
Confidentiality: Trust in therapy depends partly on knowing you have a space to talk freely about the full range of your concerns, fantasies, impulses and desires. There are, however, some legally mandated and ethically warranted exceptions to confidentiality. Primary among these are child abuse or neglect (including sex with a minor, if you are over 18), elder or dependent adult abuse, a court order, or someone presenting a serious threat of suicidal intent, or a serious threat of harm against another person(s) or their property. Also, in my work with couples, I have a no no secrets” policy. I will bring into our sessions any significant information that is revealed to me privately by one partner.
