What are your hours?

Are you covered by my insurance plan?

Insurance can be tricky, as coverage for therapy depends on each individuals’ plan. If your insurer covers therapists and psychotherapists, broadly, and/or MMFT’s specifically then you would be covered. If you’re unsure, reaching out to your insurance company would be the best way to get clarity.

Do you take direct billing?

Clients with insurance coverage submit their receipts themselves.

Can we meet remotely?

Absolutely and it is wonderful to have the option, particularly for people who live out of town or who have mobility issues. However, if there’s one thing we’ve learned during Covid, it’s that being with other people without a screen between us is so important for our mental and physical well being, so I try to meet with clients in-person whenever that is possible.

Do you work with kids and teens?

Yes and it is some of the most profoundly meaningful work I do. Since parental involvement is so vital to the well being of children, and since parents need support, too, I generally start by working with parents or caregivers, when the child is thirteen or younger. If we feel that the child would benefit from talking with me directly, we make that possible, usually with continuing parental involvement on some level. Teenagers often choose to do sessions on their own with some level of parental involvement. In all cases, I tailor the work with children and teens to their wellbeing as well as the overall needs of the family and try to facilitate open and clear communication between adults and youth.
