How to get started

Check your insurance: Most insurance plans will cover mental health services. Be sure to ask your carrier if I am on their panel. I accept most major insurances. I have a billing service that is wonderful in helping you to navigate your insurance benefits. 

Some insurance companies will require prior authorization before making your first appointment. Please be informed of your benefits.


Contact potential therapists. Look for a therapist that has the expertise and experience that you are seeking treatment for. Do not be afraid ask questions. 


I spend time with my clients in the first session going over the policy, informed consent, what to expect from therapy, confidentiality issues, and fees. 


Take the first and hardest step. Make that call. You will be glad you did and you will wonder why you waited so long to do so. 


Good luck and best wishes.
