Accepting New Clients!

Like most specialty providers, I do not accept insurance, but I can provide a superbill so that you can submit your costs for reimbursement according to your out of network benefits.

I recommend calling your insurance provider and asking about Out of Network Benefits prior to scheduling.

Paying out-of-pocket is a great option for people who want maximum privacy, confidentiality, and flexibility.

 

All sliding scale spots are currently full.

  • Are you accepting new clients?
    Yes! I currently have a few spots available for individual therapy. Ready to dive in? Click the link to schedule a free consultation!
  • Do you accept insurance?
    I am an out-of-network provider, so I do not accept or work directly with insurance companies. However, I'm happy to provide you with a superbill.
  • How can I schedule a consultation?
    Click the link labeled "schedule a free consultation" or go to the contact page and fill out the form.
  • What days are you available?
    I'm in the office Monday-Thursdays each week.
  • How often will we meet?
    I meet with the majority of my clients on a weekly basis. I ask that all new clients commit to meeting weekly for at least the first 6 weeks. This will allow us to start off on a solid foot so you can start seeing progress right away. I may recommend that we increase or decrease the frequency of sessions to best meet your needs.
  • How long will I need therapy?
    I believe honesty is the best policy, and it's hard to say. That depends on your unique situation and symptoms. If you're dealing with complex trauma or have experienced multiple incidents of trauma, you will likely remain in therapy longer than someone with a single-incident experience.
  • How long does it take for EMDR to work?
    EMDR typically delivers results faster than traditional therapy, however, the speed varies based on several factors. The type of issue, your ability to tolerate difficult and positive emotions, and your ability to practice calming skills all play a role. However, most clients feel some shift within the first processing session.
  • Who can benefit from EMDR?
    Anyone! While EMDR was initially created to treat PTSD, its usefulness in treating anxiety, depression, phobias, and many other struggles is widely accepted.
  • How does the overall treatment with EMDR look?
    EMDR focuses first on the past, present and future. The first phase of EMDR treatment is preparation. Following the preparation phase, your therapist will begin to help you identify current day issues and symptoms. Using the EMDR protocol the therapist will help you to identify common link and threads between these symptoms to link them to past memories. Because our brain stores memories in "clusters" almost like clusters of grapes, present day issues can be linked back to earlier experiences. Resolving the "root" of these issues helps to treat the underlying cause of the symptoms. For example, if you have anxiety that has followed you since childhood, we will focus on the time around the start of the symptoms to address the experiences driving the anxiety. To only focus on the symptoms of the anxiety in the present would be like taking an aspirin for a headache caused by a brain tumor rather than working with the brain tumor. Once the past pain has been cleared, present day symptoms will likely decrease significantly as your brain continues to heal. If anything is left unresolved in the present, it is attended to next. Then comes preparation for the future. Many people have fears about healing … how their life will change, how they will function with their new perspective on the world, etc. “Future” work is about being prepared.
  • What is the preparation phase and how long does it last?
    The preparation phase is a catch-all name for the work we do during and in-between sessions to prepare your nervous system for reprocessing painful memories. The focus of this phase is to help you create and hone "resources" that you can use to support yourself during processing. You will learn skills to calm your nervous system and contain memories that will help prepare you for processing. This phase is like the foundation of a house, so its VERY important. Because of this, there's no set time for how long this "should" take.
  • How often do I need to meet for therapy?
    In order for EMDR therapy to be safest and most effective, I ask all my clients to commit to weekly sessions.
