I take concerns of privacy and of confidentiality very seriously and believe that the therapeutic process works best in an atmosphere that fosters respect and safety for you, the client. While we often live and interact in close-knit communities, creating a space that is separate and safe from the outside world is a major goal of mine. I treat this very space as a place that not only maintains separateness and privacy from the outside world but is also sacred, and ultimately yours.

Privacy & Confidentiality

This document outlines my office policies related to use of social media. Please read it to understand how I conduct myself on the Internet as a mental health professional and how you can expect me to respond to various interactions that may occur between us on the Internet.


If you have any questions about anything within this document, I encourage you to bring them up when we meet. As new technology develops and the Internet changes, there may be times when I need to update this policy. If I do so, I will notify you in writing of any policy changes and make sure you have a copy of the updated policy which will be posted here.

Social Media Policy

Clients will be required to sign on to the client portal and enter financial information before the first session. All major credit cards, HSA, and FSA cards are accepted. Payment for services is expected on the day the services have been rendered unless this has been discussed prior to the session


You session time is scheduled just for you. All sessions need to be cancelled 48 hours in advance. Please see FAQ section for additional details.

Payment Options

I currently accept Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO insurance. Please check with your insurance provider to verify benefits. Many insurance companies also pay out of network provider fees so if I don't take your current insurance, you still may be able to see me.


I also work on a sliding scale for clients with financial challenges that prevent them from paying my full fee, but these slots are limited. I would be more than happy to discuss those challenges with you during our initial phone or email consultation, and adjust my fee in a way that is mutually acceptable.













The No Surprise Act went into effect on January 1, 2022. Under this law, health care providers need to give patients who do not have health 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 the cost of a single visit as well as an estimate for the average length of recurring treatment.

* If you are not using insurance, you will be provided a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your first appointment. You can request a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an appointment.

* Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit or call 1-800-985-3059.

“The place of true healing is a fierce place. It's a giant place. It's a place of monstrous beauty and endless dark and glimmering light. And you have to work really, really, really hard to get there, but you can do it.”
