Frequently Asked Questions

How Can Therapy Help Me?

It may take some careful consideration before deciding to participate in therapy. There are several benefits that are achievable from participating in therapy. A therapist can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues etc. Many people find that therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution to achieve personal growth, better relationships and reduced stress of every day life.

What happens if you are out of network?

You can speak with your insurance company to find out if they cover Out-of-Network benefits. If so, you can ask about the process for receiving reimbursement for your sessions. 

To determine if you have mental health coverage through your insurance carrier, the first thing you should do is call them. Check your coverage carefully and make sure you understand their answers.  Some helpful questions you can ask them:


  • What are my mental health benefits?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
  • How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician? 

Do you accept insurance or how do I pay?

Yes, and self-pay is accepted

Do you prescribe medication?

We do not prescribe medication but if you and your clinician determine that medication management is necessary, we will help to connect you with a trusted provider.  

Do I Really Need Therapy To Help Solve My Problems?

At some point, everyone goes through situations in life that are challenging, and while you may have been able to get through certain difficulties, there’s nothing wrong with reaching out for extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is very admirable. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you are in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to overcome whatever challenges you face.

Do you offer telehealth sessions?

Yes.  HIPAA compliant platforms that ensure that you and your information stay confidential are used for Telehealth sessions. When setting up your initial session, you will be provided with information on how to access the link and log into the Telehealth session.

What is your cancellation policy?

A 24 hours notice of cancellation is required or the client is responsible for the total cost of the session.

Will everything we discuss be confidential?

,Yes, everything we discuss will be confidential with a few exceptions. We are mandated reporters and therefore we need to report any suspected child abuse or elder abuse, any threats of harm to yourself or others, and we would need to respond to any subpoena by the court. 


Confidentiality is one of the most important aspects between a client and psychotherapist. Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter that is usually not discussed anywhere but the therapist’s office.   You will be provided with a copy of the confidentiality disclosure called “Informed Consent”.  Sometimes, however, you may want your therapist to share information or give an update to someone on your healthcare team (PCP, attorney, etc.) but by law your therapist cannot release this information without obtaining your written permission.


However, state law and professional ethics require therapists to maintain confidentiality except for the following situations:


* Suspected past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, and elders to the authorities, including Child Protection and law enforcement, based on information provided by the client or collateral sources.

* If the therapist has reason to suspect the client is seriously in danger of harming him/herself or has threatened to harm another person.
