Frequently Asked Questions
How much does counseling cost?
Counseling is an investment in yourself. Mental health greatly impacts our physical health as well as our quality of life. Working through thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are holding you back from living your best life surely is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, as well as the people in your life.
One of the reasons why I love using EMDR with clients is how efficient and quickly it works! Sometimes clients only require a handful of EMDR sessions in order to process through trauma and no longer experience symptoms of anxiety and depression. Together we will tailor a treatment plan that meets your individual needs.
$130 for a 50 minute session
$110 for a 50 minute session- reduced rate for veterans, first responders, teachers and musicians.
Do you accept insurance?
I am currently an in-network provider for United Healthcare/ Optum.
For other insurance providers, I would be considered an “out-of-network” provider. However, many policies have “out-of-network” coverage, so your treatment may still be covered by insurance. I am happy to provide you with the information you need to file a claim with your insurance company for reimbursement.
Is it okay if I would like to meet just every other week?
I have clients that work with me sometimes twice a week and others that come just once a month for maintenance. Typically, my new clients begin with weekly sessions and then might switch to bi-weekly sessions once they have begun to see significant progress toward their goals. I wish to support my clients in the best way possible though, so we can develop a schedule together that meets your individual needs.
It’s hard for me to take time off work/ school. Are you available in the evenings and weekends?
Absolutely! In an effort to make counseling more accessible to both adults and adolescents, I am happy to offer evening and weekend appointments. I offer afternoon/evening appointments Tuesday-Thursday and flexible appointment times Friday-Saturday.
What if I don’t live in Austin? Can I still work with you?
Yes, I offer convenient televideo counseling sessions to Texas residents, so even if you live across our massively awesome state, you can still receive support from me.
When you become a new client, you will gain access to your secure patient portal which includes pre-installed, HIPAA compliant televideo counseling software for us to conduct our sessions with. Televideo counseling can be a great solution for those who would like the benefits of counseling, but are unable to meet with their therapist in person due to therapist’s location, transportation issues or child-care restraints.
