“If you have come to help me you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together”

~Lila Watson, Aboriginal Activist 

Rates & Policies

$150 for 50 minutes individual session

$200 for 75 minutes couples session

$300 for 2 hours couples assessment session


I see individuals for 50-minute sessions and couples for 75-minute sessions. 2 hours sessions are done as part of the initial intake process with couples. 


Consistency is an important part of therapy. I meet with all clients weekly. Occasionally, it is appropriate to decrease to bi-weekly or as needed depending on your personal goals and needs but this is discussed on a case by case basis.

I am not in-network with any insurance companies. However, a monthly receipt of services (called a super bill) can be provided which you may be able to submit to your insurance company or HSA. Most PPO's will cover an out-of-network provider. Please consult your insurance company to learn about this option. 

Forms of Payment
Payment is due at the beginning of each session. I accept both cash and checks and credit cards via IvyPay.

Cancellation Policy
If you need to miss or reschedule a session, I ask for 48 hours advanced notice. If you cancel your session with less than 48-hours notice or you do not attend a scheduled session you are responsible for the paying the full session fee.
