**I can provide you with a Superbill /receipt with everything required to get reimbursed by your insurance company. I accept credit card, cash, check or apps including Venmo, PayPal and Square.
I am an out-of-network provider. My clients pay me directly and I give them receipts to submit to their insurance company for reimbursement based on plan offerings. You can call your insurance company and ask what they cover for out-of-network mental health.
Many of my clients are happy to find out that their insurance plans reimburse anywhere from 40%-80% of each session.
I can provide you with an receipt with everything required by your insurance company.
The standard meeting time is 50 minutes once a week.
I also offer 90 minute sessions which are ideal for deeper IFS and guided visualisation work. It allows for more time to journey deeply and integrate. Longer sessions are also useful for couples who need more time.
I am available for more frequent and longer sessions, including a full day or week-end intensive for those interested in delving deep. We can talk more about the possibilities based on your needs and visions.
I have a 48-hour cancellation policy. I request that you give 48 hours notice if you need to reschedule a session. Otherwise, you will be responsible for the fee.
If you are sick and can’t come into the office, we can switch to a phone call.
I recommend a weekly cadence to build a solid therapeutic foundation. That allows for us to get into the rhythm of insight and transformation.
I offer new clients to come in for a trial session to see how they feel. After that, if we decide to work together, a 6-week commitment is expected in order to join my practice and see changes emerge.
We would then assess where you are at and what would be best for you moving forward.
Each person will have a different need and timeline depending on the issue at hand.
I offer 3 options:
Talk-it-out: A 6 session course of weekly sessions that allows for understanding a deeper connection to your immediate need.
Dive-in and expand: a 3-6 month course of weekly sessions to uncover patterns, heal your relationship to yourself image and learn tools of self resilience and management.
Master and integrate: a 6 month + course of weekly sessions to embolden our therapeutic alliance, heal attachment wounds, turn you into a self-awareness ninja and delve deeper into your Higher Self and Spiritual path.
Yes! I am thrilled to work with clients across all borders with coaching sessions. I have worked with many entrepreneurs and founders and love this subset of the population and the possibilities we can collaborate around.
Coaching is a great way to develop strategic actions to tackle your goals and get you on the right path. I incorporate Psychotherapeutic depth into my coaching options so that you still develop deep insight while focusing on action plans.

IFS, or the Internal Family Systems Model, is an integrative approach to psychotherapy developed by Richard C. Schwartz in the 1980s. It combines systems thinking with the view that the mind is made up of relatively discrete subpersonalities, each with its own unique viewpoint and qualities.
The IFS model aims to differentiate the Self from the other parts (managers, firefighters, and exiles) making up a person’s inner world. The ultimate goal of IFS is to unburden or restore extreme and wounded parts and establish a trusted, healthy, harmonious internal system that is coordinated by the Self.
IFS has been “all the buzz” recently as we develop more awareness around neuro-plasticity and ways that we can “change our mind” through new experiences of ourselves and deep inner journeying.
