Do you offer a sliding scale?

I do not offer a sliding scale.  However, if you are unable to afford my services, I hope you will contact me anyway as I might be able to help you find a lower cost alternative.  I will do anything I can to match you with a therapist that might be a better fit for you.

Do you offer a discount for military, first responders, and public school teachers?

Yes.  I offer a 5% discount off my regular weekday rates for active military, veterans, police officers, fire fighters (and other first responders), as well as for public school teachers.  Thank you ALL for your incredible service.  Please contact me HERE to schedule an appointment.

Do you offer evening or weekend hours?

To help make counseling more accessible, I offer limited evening and weekend hours at a slightly higher hourly rate.

Why don't you accept insurance?

Most insurance policies do not cover couples counseling.  When they do cover it, I find that insurance companies often get in the way of good therapy, and they frequently require therapists to share information with them that clients prefer to keep confidential. By keeping insurance companies out of the equation we can focus our sessions on your therapeutic goals, rather than waste time and money justifying treatment and filling out reams of paperwork. And maybe the most important reason for wanting to avoid insurance companies is that most of them require therapists to use diagnosis codes to authorize treatment. Your diagnosis can follow you for years to come, and can affect your ability to obtain private insurance in the future. In my mind labeling you with a diagnosis does not further your treatment, and I avoid it whenever possible.
