How much do you charge?
$90 - 45 Minute Session
$110 - Intake and 60 Minute Session
Please ask about other payment options during your consultation.
Do you accept insurance?
Currently, I do not accept any insurances. However, I can provide a superbill at the end of every month that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement (at their discretion). Please note: submitting an insurance claim means that I will need to make a mental health diagnosis.
You have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" detailing how much your care will cost. Under the law, providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency services (you must receive this at least one day prior to your scheduled service). You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
All Good Faith Estimates for Rise Counseling and Consulting will come through your confidential patient portal.
How often will we meet?
At first, we will most likely meet once per week. After 4-6 weeks, we will discuss progress and decide whether or not to proceed weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require 48 hours notice of cancellation or you will need to pay for the appointment. An occasional exception may be made in the case of an emergency. It’s important that we meet consistently in order to make progress.
Are there any issues or types of client that you DON'T work with?
I do not conduct child custody evaluations nor do I provide custody recommendations. I also don’t provide treatment for eating disorders, psychotic disorders (schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, etc), or personality disorders. In addition, there may be some issues that I will refer out to other therapists with more expertise.
How do I know if we'll be a good fit?
Let's chat! I will be more than happy to schedule a free, 15-minute, phone consultation with you! During that time, I will ask about your reasons for seeking counseling, what you're looking for in a therapist, and what goals you have for therapy. You can also feel free to ask me any questions you may have about the therapy process, billing/payment, etc. To schedule a consultation, use the form on the Contact Us page!
What if we're not a good fit?
That's ok! My job is to help you find the BEST CARE, whether that's with me, or another mental health professional. I will work collaboratively with other therapists in the area to help you find a great fit!
Do you prescribe medication?
No, I am not a medical doctor. Many of my patients find medication is helpful, but many of them also progress well in therapy without medication. If you want to be evaluated for psychiatric medication, either contact your primary care physician or a psychiatrist. If you are already taking medication, I can work with your doctor to coordinate care. If you need help finding a psychiatrist, please let me know and we can work together to find a good fit.
