Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept insurance?
I do not currently accept insurance but can provide clients with a superbill to receive possible out-of-network reimbursement from their insurance provider. Check out the article below for more information on why therapists are moving away from working with insurance companies.
This article provides a thorough explanation of why many therapists, including myself, do not take insurance.
What do services cost (including sliding scale)?
My current fees are $140 for 50-minute individual therapy and $30 for 90-minute group therapy. These sessions are all currently offered via telehealth video. I also offer outdoor eco-therapy sessions for clients in Austin, Texas starting at a fee of $150 for sessions in Pease Park and $180 for sessions in other Austin green spaces. I offer sliding scale rates for qualifying clients when available. All of my sliding scale slots are currently full.
How do you meet with clients?
I currently see clients via telehealth video and in-person eco-therapy sessions in Pease Park's more private northern section. I am also on the hunt for a new permanent office! While some clients are apprehensive about telehealth at first, they tend to feel comfortable with the platform within the first session. I am committed to providing a comfortable and connected telehealth experience and have yet to have a client feel dissatisfied with the quality of our work via telehealth.
How do telehealth sessions work?
After receiving telehealth training amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, I have helped numerous clients meet and surpass their therapeutic goals via telehealth. Each week, my client portal sends out reminders and links to a secure telehealth space. Using the SimplePractice platform, we meet in a virtual space with high quality video and sound capabilities and options for screen sharing. After years of using this platform, I am confident in its ability to facilitate client-therapist connection and therapeutic growth. For those interested in in-person sessions, I currently offer outdoor eco-sessions.
