Do you take insurance?
I am an out-of-network provider, so I am not paneled with any insurance companies and payment is due at the time of service.
However, some PPO plans offer reimbursement for out of network mental health services. Please check with your provider to find out if reimbursement will be an option for the type of therapy you are seeking.
How frequently should I attend?
I recommend that all of my clients plan to attend once per week. I find this the most beneficial for my clients. The only times that I might recommend a different frequency would be:
a) During a time of acute crisis, more frequent sessions might be warranted.
b) When therapy is almost concluded and goals are largely met, a step-down in frequency to every other week or a monthly check-in might be appropriate.
What type of therapy do you use?
I primarily use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for individuals (EFIT) or couples (EFCT). However, I also treat each person as a unique individual, so therapy with me is tailored and adapted to what works best for you. It is my job to get to know and understand you so that I can help you to achieve your therapy goals. Learn more about EFT here:
Do you offer telehealth/virtual appointments?
Yes! I currently offer virtual appointments only. Virtual therapy gives me and my clients the flexibility to attend an appointment from any location in California, Vermont or Florida.
Can I have a telehealth appointment anywhere?
I am licensed in the state of California and also registered as a telehealth provider with the states of Florida and Vermont. Therefore the clients that I treat must also be located in California, Vermont or Florida at the time of service. I cannot conduct an individual, couple or family therapy session if one or more people is located in a different state at the time of the appointment, even if they normally reside in California, Vermont or Florida unless that state's licensing board grants temporary permission.

How long will I be in therapy?
That depends on many factors, including your presenting issues, your therapy goals and your level of engagement with the process. On average, clients stay in therapy from a few months to a year or more. You are under no obligation to attend any particular number of sessions and you can end therapy whenever you like. All I ask is that you attend consistently while you are in therapy.
Can I connect with you on social media?
To preserve your confidentiality and maintain professional boundaries, I will not respond to messages or requests to connect on social media.
What if I have more questions?
If you have not found the answer to your question on this page or elsewhere on my website, please email me email@example.com before booking your first appointment. I will respond as soon as my schedule permits.
