Therapy FAQ

What therapy clients do you work with?

You must live in Colorado, Texas, or Virginia in order to get therapy from me. See my Specialties page for details on the most common presenting issues for which my clients seek therapy for. I see individuals only, not couples or groups.

What is online therapy?

All my therapy sessions are online, also called teletherapy or distance therapy, meaning they are via online video sessions. They take place on a HIPAA secure video platform called Simple Practice. In order to participate, I will e-mail the link to you ahead of time. You will need a phone, laptop, or other computer device with a camera or webcam.

How long will I be in therapy?

Sessions are 45-60 minutes long and most clients meet every 1-2 weeks until your goal(s) are met. They may be spaced out a little more over time. Some people are seeking more short term (3-6 months) support, but others come for long-term support (6+ months). It depends on your goals, and you don’t have to know ahead of time which is best for you. I believe in making the very most of your time and energy in therapy, and timeframe and goal attainment is an ongoing discussion with your therapist.

What therapy modalities do you use?

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness modalities. These methods of therapy have been shown in research studies to be incredibly effective in treating anxiety amongst many other issues. They also benefit from showing great results in a shorter period of time. You can expect to spend time talking about your life as a whole and which areas you feel need the most work, and targeting those areas to set your goals. A lot of thought and behavioral changes will take place between sessions. Changing some of the limiting or negative beliefs you may not even be aware of can also be an integral part of the work in therapy.

What is the cost of a therapy session?

See the Fees page for current prices of individual teletherapy sessions.

Do you take insurance?

Yes, we currently accept:

  • United Healthcare (for Colorado residents only, accepting new clients with UHC starting 9/26/2021)
  • ComPsych EAP
  • CuraLinc EAP

Currently also accepting private pay. Some reasons people seek therapy for private pay vs. through insurance are that they:

  • Are looking for a provider with a specific specialty in what they’re seeking therapy for, rather than a generalist
  • Have no insurance benefits for therapy
  • Prefer to keep mental health therapy records private from their insurance company or employer
