Frequently Asked Questions:

  • The "Inner Counselor" process usually takes 4 sessions for significant improvement. (Best for trauma)
  • What about payment?

    • I do not bill insurance. Payment is due at time of service. However I will give you a receipt, called a "Superbill", which is accepted by most major insurance carriers at an "out of network" payment rate. You submit this yourself  to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please call and check with them first.
