DO YOU ACCEPT MEDICAL INSURANCE?
No, but I may be able to accept your FSA/HSA card. Click here to learn more about why I don’t accept insurance.
WHEN ARE YOUR COUNSELING SESSIONS?
I offer counseling sessions several days per week, generally after 3 PM MT. Occasionally I'll have early morning sessions, too.
DO YOU SERVE WHITE, HETERO, AND/OR CISGENDER PEOPLE TOO?
Yes, but I prioritize the needs of Black, Brown, Indigenous and/or Queer people in everything I do. This means any additional learning or training I participate in is created by or for the advancement and liberation of Black, Brown, Indigenous or Queer people. Therapy has been deeply whitewashed and based in heteronormativity. I do my best to serve in a decolonized manner.
WHAT IS "TRUST-BASED" SLIDING SCALE?
This means you let me know what you can pay on a scale that is below my full fee. In contrast to other "traditional" sliding scales, you will not have to provide any financial documentation to participate. If a space is open and you need it, it’s yours. If or when you are able to adjust your payment, I trust that you will let me know.
DO YOU OFFER IN-PERSON SESSIONS?
I offer in-person sessions twice a year for current therapeutic partners. When that opportunity arises, current therapeutic partners will be notified in advance.
HOW LONG WILL I BE IN THERAPY?
Because each person has different concerns and goals for counseling, it will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs.
WHY WOULD I PAY PRIVATELY FOR THERAPY?
There are a few reasons why you might be interested in paying privately for therapy. You can have increased privacy, receive more unique services, and you may even save money depending on your insurance plan. Many clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. They do not want their therapy experience to be limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan, or session limits that most health insurance companies allow. Insurance companies can limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy used in sessions.
To have therapy services covered under insurance a mental health diagnosis is required. This becomes a part of your permanent health care record. This can cause denial for quality life insurance, future opportunities or health insurance later on. Since a mental health diagnosis must be made to obtain reimbursement, the insurance company has to know a lot of information about you to be covered. The insurance company can review all of your records at their discretion. By paying privately or out-of-pocket, you can assure the highest degree of privacy, confidentiality, and flexibility with your mental health records.
