Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

  • You can either schedule today with my scheduling link, or I would love for you to set up free half hour consult either in-person or virtual/phone so we can make sure we have a good fit.

What appointment types do you offer?

  • In-office

  • Virtual

  • Phone

  • Out-of-office

  • Additionally I offer teen support groups and parent support groups

What should I expect from our first appointment?


  • On the first appointment I can meet with either your child individually (if they know why they are there and are ready to jump in.)

  • Or a preferred approach would be to begin our first session with one or both parents along with your child so we clarify concerns, possible challenges, and successful outcomes together.

Do you take insurance?

  • Currently, we are all private pay but happy to discuss payment options and payment plans if helpful.

Why are your rates higher?

  • I believe I offer a level of experience, expertise, determination, work ethic, and success built over the last 20 years to offer you a higher level of service and as a specialist in my field. My goal is to work myself out of a job.

What are your views on medication?

  • Medication with teens or young adults are never preferred.  Medication only becomes a consideration for discussion if we are not able to achieve agreed upon objectives through counseling, coping skills, and ability to complete therapeutic action steps.
