Frequently Asked Questions
Are you HIPAA Compliant?
Absolutely. I utilize HIPAA compliant platforms for email (ProtonMail) and phone communications (iPlum) in addition to HIPAA compliant telehealth platforms (where I meet with my clients).
How much do you charge?
I provide an initial 20-minute phone consultation free of charge to discuss your needs and determine if any of my approaches will be a good fit. After that, I offer 60-minute virtual sessions for $130, if paying out-of-pocket.
Do you accept insurance?
I am contracted through Headway and Westside Behavioral Health for clients who want to utilize insurance benefits. Please know that billing insurance requires me to make a diagnosis based on your symptoms, and insurance companies may use that information in various ways, such as information for life insurance plans. At this time, I am not a Medicaid provider, nor can anyone be reimbursed by Medicare for treatment services with me.
For anyone not utilizing insurance, or those without coverage, you have the right to a Good Faith Estimate. Read more.
Do you offer in-person sessions?
Not at this time. My virtual sessions are private, offer greater efficiencies while maintaining the effectiveness of in-person sessions. I encourage you to find a private, comfortable, safe space with reliable internet access to benefit the most from our time.
Do you provide counseling services for children?
I focus on counseling and therapy services for adults. However, I am happy to connect with you and provide additional resources and contacts that may be a good fit for your child.
What is your cancellation policy?
In the case that you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, 24-hour advance notice is required. With less than 24 hours’ notice, you will be charged a fee of $75. This is not typically reimbursed by insurance.
What if I don't feel like we're a good fit?
A good fit between us is very important to your healing. If you do not feel the right chemistry during our consultation, I am happy to provide additional contacts and resources to assist you in your next step, so you don’t have to feel like you’re starting from square one.
Do you provide evaluations for court proceedings?
I do not provide evaluations or paperwork for court proceedings, but am happy to provide contacts of counselors that do.
Do you provide letters of recommendation for support animals?
I do not provide letters of recommendation for support animals at this time.
What's the difference between a counselor, therapist or psychiatrist?
A Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) holds a master’s or doctoral degree, has at least two years post-master’s or one year postdoctoral practice, and is licensed to provide counseling services. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor, and can prescribe medication. An unlicensed psychotherapist listed in the State’s database is authorized by law to practice psychotherapy in Colorado, but is not licensed by the state and is not required to satisfy any standardized educational or testing requirements to obtain a registration from the state.
