Scheduling

Are you accepting new clients?
Please see the appointments page for the most up-to-date info about session availability.

How do I set up an appointment?
Here’s the fastest way to get started:

  • Send me an email

  • In that email, let me know some times that you’d be available to chat on the phone for a few minutes to make sure you feel like I’m a great fit for you, to let me answer any questions or concerns you might have, and to let me make sure your concerns fall within my expertise

  • We’ll chat on the phone, and if you’d like, we can go ahead and look at the calendar. Please see the appointments page for the most up-to-date info about session availability

What is your schedule? Do you offer weekend or evening appointments?
Days: I am in the Cool Springs office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Please see the appointments page for the most up-to-date info about session availability.

Evenings & weekends: I do not offer evening and weekend appointments. I have a limited number of lunchtime appointments available for those working around strict daytime hours. 

Feel free to check in with me to see how our schedules might be able to work together.

Fees

What is your session rate?
My rate is $150/session.

Do you offer a sliding scale and discounts?
I sure don’t. I maintain several pro bono slots, which are currently filled.


Insurance

Do you accept insurance?
I don’t process insurance. It’s always worth checking in with your insurance company, just in case - some plans may reimburse for out of network sessions or let your sessions count toward your deductible. I can give you a special receipt with the medical codes they’ll need. 

You’ll also want to check in with them to see what you need in order to get counseling covered. Here are some questions you’ll want to ask:

  • Do they reimburse for counseling? For out of network counseling?

  • Do they require a diagnosis in order to cover your sessions?

  • Do they limit the amount of sessions they’ll cover based on that diagnosis?

  • Do they require special permission for sessions over a certain length (for instance, 60 minutes vs. 45 minutes)

  • Will they allow unreimbursed sessions to count toward your deductible?

  • If you are seeking couples therapy, do they cover that? (Many plans do not cover relationship therapy.)

It’s important to find out these details before starting therapy so that we both have an idea of the expectations. Sometimes insurance plans cover enough sessions to give you coping skills to change outward behaviors, but not enough sessions to do the deep, healing heart-work I believe in. There are absolutely exceptions to that, though, so again: it’s always worth checking in with them.

Can I use my HSA (Health Savings Account) or Flex Account?
If you have a health savings account or flex account, I can run HSA/FSA cards just as I would a regular credit card. I can provide you a special receipt to submit if you need it.
