I am not (and cannot be) an expert in every area. I consider it my professional responsibility to refer clients out for specific needs that should be treated by another therapist with special training in those areas. This includes severe eating disorders and addiction. I also do not see children or families (with the exception of adult child(ren) and parent relationships) in my practice.
Virtual video sessions are conducted through Simple Practice, which is a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform developed specifically for the purpose of connecting clients and therapists.
I am an out-of-network provider and do not directly bill insurance.
If you’re hoping to find an in-network provider, www.psychologytoday.com is a useful resource.
Every client’s needs and circumstances are different.
As a general rule, I recommend committing to at least five sessions, as it will take several sessions for us to get to know each other. Without this introductory period, it would be impossible and unethical for me to provide specific feedback and for us to develop an appropriate treatment plan.
After the first initial sessions, we will determine the frequency of visits and collaboratively create goals for therapy. In general, I recommend beginning with weekly sessions to build momentum and then tapering to bi-weekly or monthly, when appropriate.
