Frequently Asked Questions 

Where is your office located?  Meeting virtually through 2021.

What forms of payment do you accept?  Payments for sessions are collected electronically  at the beginning of each session

Do you accept insurance? I am out of network on all insurances. If you wish to obtain reimbursement by your insurance company, I can provide you with an invoice for services rendered. I do not contact or deal directly with insurance. 

Contact your benefits administrator to inquire about out-of-network coverage for mental health services and ask the following questions before scheduling an appointment: 

  • Do I have out of network mental h ealth benefits and do you reimburse?
  • What is the procedure for reimbursement?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How much does my insurance plan cover for an out-of-network provider for procedure code (CPT code) 90834, 90837, or 90791?

Can you provide medication? As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am not licensed to write prescriptions. If during our time together you express a need for medication, I can refer you to a psychiatrist, and you may inquire about medication with your primary care physician, so that we may collaboratively give you the level of care that suits your needs

Do you provide free consultation? Yes, the initial consult is a 20-minute phone consultation. This is a time for you to ask questions, explain what is motivating you to therapy, and to get a feel for me as a therapist. If, for any reason, you/we decide we are not a good fit; or the reason behind you seeking treatment is beyond the scope of my practice, I can refer you to one or more of my colleagues that may better suit your needs.

What if I am not sure about coming to therapy? It’s okay and completely natural to be ambivalent about therapy. That’s actually the beginning of the therapeutic process- sharing the discomfort and fears involving therapy and the therapist.  It’s hard to divulge private, precious information to a person you barely know. Sometimes, people also have negative experiences with therapists and naturally generalize and develop an aversion to therapy overall. It’s essential to acknowledge those feelings and express them. I encourage you to discuss them more with me. I believe once you feel heard and validated, we can begin to develop a trusting relationship and become one step closer to building a strong therapeutic foundation.
