About

In-person vs. Virtual Session


I currently conduct in-person sessions at my office in Littleton and virtual sessions using Simple Practice.

Fees


I would be happy to have an initial 20-minute phone or Zoom consultation at no charge. Individual 50-minute sessions are $155.


Payment


I accept cash, checks, all major credit cards, and HSA cards. Payments can be made through the client portal or in-person.


Cancellation Policy


I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. Aside from an emergency, if you fail to notify me 24 hours prior to your scheduled session, I reserve the right to charge you for a full session.

What to expect from your first appointment


Your first appointment is primarily comprised of information gathering.  I will listen to your reasons for seeking out counseling and I will be asking questions about your background, current life situations, and how your current symptoms or struggles are impacting your life. We will then discuss what the next steps look like, if you have any questions, and whether you are comfortable with moving forward with counseling.

Session Frequency, Treatment Length and “Surprise Billing”:

Mental health differs from medical treatment in terms of ability to predict treatment duration. How long a person needs to engage in therapy varies, as each individual’s healing path is unique. I will collaborate with you throughout your treatment regarding the frequency of sessions and services you may need to receive the greatest benefit based on your mental health concerns.

In an effort to avoid any “surprise billing”, all rates of services are transparent and listed on this website, on your new client paperwork, and discussed prior to beginning services. Any changes in rate are discussed in advance, and you are always in charge of how often you attend sessions.

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.

Good Faith Estimate Notice:

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

• Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
