I offer 55 minute therapy sessions which can be weekly or twice a week depending on needs. On average, new clients start noticing progress after the first 3-5 sessions.
The total duration of therapy varies.
10-12 weeks gives many clients the peace of mind to navigate on their own. Longer term therapy is a better fit for others. Your timeline, like your experience, is unique & based on your individual needs.
Fees are discussed in the initial consultation and a range is available to promote accessibility. A good faith estimate can be found here. You are encouraged to discuss an adjusted rate as needed.
Credit, debit and HSA cards are accepted through the client portal. A card is stored for your file and charged the day of service.
Appointments will be cancelled for accounts with outstanding fees.
Once a session is scheduled, it is your designated time & financial responsibility.
With 48 hours notice, I am happy to work with you to reschedule dependent on time being available in the same calendar week.
You can find the complete policy here.
I do not accept insurance at this time.
If you would still like to work with your insurance, your insurance may provide some reimbursement.
To help, I can provide a monthly superbill that you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
If you choose to submit for reimbursement, the rate of reimbursement is determined by your insurance plan. I encourage you to contact your insurance company to see if this is a good option for you.
Therapy is offered both online across Virginia and in-person in the Charlottesville, Virginia office.
Whether to choose online or in-person will be based on what works best for you. If you're uncertain, this can be further discussed during the consultation.
Online therapy can be from the comfort of your home and many clients feel more comfortable accessing support in this way. Clients who choose to meet in person sometime feel more supported by sharing physical space and engaging in hands-on activities.
There is not a right or wrong, it's about what works best for you.
Poke around the website to learn about my practice. In summary:
I use an evidence-based framework called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to guide sessions. What this means is that I support client in changing their relationships with difficult thoughts and feelings and taking action in their lives in ways that matter to them.
As a person, I tend inquisitive, irreverent, and empathetic. It's deeply important to me to hold space for my fellow unconventional folks who often feel out of place.
Want to overcome anxiety and show up in your life with more confidence? I also want that for you. Let's talk.
You're here because you know that you'd benefit from talking to someone.
I offer a free 15 minute consultation so that you can ask any questions you have as I want you to feel as prepared as you can getting started. To schedule your free consultation just use the link at the top of the page "schedule your free consultation".
What if you don't want a consultation? You can request a full online 55-minute session (availability permitting) by setting up a client account here. Appointments without prior consultation are charged the full fee. Please review fees prior to scheduling. Requests will be reviewed and must be approved. Once your request is approved, please complete new client forms prior to your appointment.
Free 15 minute consultations are your opportunity to meet, ask any questions you may have, and consider if working together would be a good fit.
Before a consultation it may be helpful to consider what you're looking for in therapy and write down your questions so that we can be sure to cover them.
I encourage you to discuss life experiences and issues it would be important that a therapist working with you be familiar with.
At the end of the consultation, if we're a good fit to work together, you'll be asked if you'd like to schedule an initial session. If you need a therapist who offers something different, I am happy to provide a referral.
You may have no idea where to begin, but I invite you to consider what might make someone a good fit for you.
If you have specific worries about therapy; people sometimes dread the idea of rehashing or feeling like they have to dig into their painful stuff -or- have questions about confidentiality, I want us to clear those up in your initial consultation.
You can ask questions at any point in time, but the initial consultation is a good place to start with building some clarity and getting to know one another. Use the button below to Connect Today.
