Scheduling and Cancellations:

If you need to cancel your appointment for any reason, it is important that you call, leave a message, or email as soon as possible. If you provide least 48 hours notice of cancellation prior to your scheduled appointment, you may be able to reschedule your appointment within three business days without incurring a charge (pending appointment availability). If you provide less than 48 hours notice of cancellation and do not reschedule, you will be charged in full for the appointment time.



I am not an in-network provider with any insurance carriers and do not participate directly with managed care companies. However, my services may be eligible for reimbursement as an out-of-network provider. Clients should contact their insurance providers directly by calling the customer service number on the back your insurance card in order to review out of network coverage for mental health services. Please contact me directly to discuss billing inquiries related to my practice.

I strongly believe in the value of working collaboratively with other providers and prefer to coordinate with my clients' treatment teams whenever possible. I can provide referral lists for outpatient providers including dietitians, primary care providers, psychiatrists, family therapists and more if you feel that you would benefit from the support of a multi-disciplinary treatment team.


Please note: I am not currently accepting new clients, but will happily add new client inquiries to a wait list, or provide referrals to other therapists with availability upon request. Thank you!
