Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect from therapy?

Psychotherapy is different for everyone, which makes it hard to describe. Generally, we'll focus on what you're thinking and feeling, and we'll discuss practical strategies for making your life better. Some moments are amazing, and some moments are hard work. Similar to exercising, you get out what you put in. Throughout the process, I will be there to support and challenge you so you get the most out of our meetings.

How long does therapy take?

The length of therapy depends on your needs and goals. As part of our first session, we will discuss your goals and the process of treatment. I value transparency throughout the process so that you are empowered to make decisions that work best for you.

How do I make an appointment?

You can use my calendly link to schedule an initial consultation, or you can call 970-235-1159. Once we have started psychotherapy, you can use the secure client portal for scheduling and rescheduling. We can discuss more at our initial consultation meeting.

Is psychotherapy confidential?

Once you have signed the consent for treatment, our interactions are confidential and protected by state and federal laws.  For more information about the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which governs confidential treatment in the US, click here.

There are a few exceptions to confidentiality that occur in rare cases. We will discuss them at the beginning of our meetings as part of the informed consent process.

Where will we meet?

Our meetings will be on a secure online videoconferencing platform. You can access it to meet with me from anywhere in Colorado. It is important for you to be in a quiet place with minimal distractions.

Do you take insurance?

I accept Aetna, Oscar Health, Oxford Health, Optum, and United Health insurances. I am also happy to provide a superbill that you can submit to your insurance provider for out-of-network benefits. Please consult your insurance provider for information about what you can expect to contribute to session costs.

What is your cancellation policy?

24-hour notice is required for cancelling or rescheduling for a psychotherapy appointment. Without such notice, a $100 fee will be charged.

I provide two complimentary late-cancellations or no-shows per calendar year, regardless of how many times we meet that year. Any late cancellations or no shows beyond that will be charged $100. The only exceptions occur for severe weather in which local government chooses to reduce or suspend services.
