My practice is what is generally called fee-for-service and payment in full is expected at the time of your appointment.

I currently charge $150-$220 per 50-minute session for individual sessions and $225 per 90 minute session. This page is for friends, family and/or students/peers/colleagues. I do not participate in insurance panels and while licensed, I consider myself a coach who utilizes therapeutic strategies, so that I have greater flexibility and am not confined by insurance limitations.


If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, there is no refund, transfer or proration. 


While the thought is appreciated, I am unable to receive gifts of any kind, as this would be a conflict of interest. Holiday cards are acceptable if you feel compelled. 


There is a zoned parking space in front of the side door which is the office door. Sessions are created so that clients may exit and enter with plenty of time to park. Because of the nature of the home office, this is a zoned office, zoned space, and not a public establishment; meaning, walking around the property is not acceptable, at any time, and arrival is only upon session agreement.



Sessions must be scheduled via email only and cancelled via email or text; please note that you must get confirmation via email for session to commence. 

Sessions may be in office, telephone or via video.
