Frequently Asked Questions

What is therapy/counseling?

Therapy (also called counseling) is when you meet with a mental health professional to address problems that are affecting your life. Therapy is a place to discuss your emotions, experiences, and behaviors so you can gain a better understanding of yourself and work towards your personal goals, all while receiving support and guidance from your therapist.

How does teletherapy (online therapy/counseling) work?

Teletherapy works very similarly to in-person therapy. The biggest difference is that we will be in two different physical locations. You will receive a link ahead of time, and at the time of your appointment you will join the secure video call. In order for teletherapy to be most effective, you will want to make sure you are in a safe, private location where you won't be interrupted, and that you have a good internet connection.

How much do sessions cost?

My rate is $170 per 50-minute session, and I accept all major credit cards. I am happy to provide you with super bills so you can request out-of-network benefits reimbursement from your insurance company if you wish. I also accept Colorado Access Medicaid (regions 3 and 5) and Aetna. If you are using insurance, your copay will depend on your specific plan.

How do out-of-network benefits work?

Most insurance companies offer out-of-network benefits, and will provide you with some amount of reimbursement for sessions. Please refer to the helpful checklist on how to use these benefits on my Services and Fees page.

What is your availability?

I offer appointments Monday through Thursday from 9-5pm MST. I offer either weekly or bi-weekly sessions and will ask that you schedule an ongoing appointment day and time.

Who do you work with?

I work mostly with young adults in their 20s and 30s. However, I enjoy working with adults of all ages. I specialize in anxiety, panic disorder, and difficult life transitions and stressors. Wherever you are in life, my goal is to support you on your journey.

As my practice is 100% online, I can work with anyone residing in Colorado.

What happens during the first session?

Your first session is an opportunity for us to get to know each other. I will ask you questions about the reasons that bring you to therapy and what you're hoping to get out of therapy so we can be intentional in our work together. Essentially we will start to build a "roadmap" so we can start working towards your goals in a collaborative way.

How long does therapy last?

The length of therapy can depend on several factors, including what your personal goals are and what it is you're experiencing. Therapy can last anywhere from a few sessions to a few months or years. Therapy is supposed to be helpful, so it is appropriate to continue as long as it is still helping you grow and progress towards your goals. I will regularly check in with you to make sure you are getting what you need out of our sessions.

How often should I see my therapist?

I offer either weekly or bi-weekly sessions, and will ask that you schedule an ongoing appointment day/time. Research shows that more consistent therapy sessions lead to better outcomes (while also saving you time and money in the long-run).

What should I expect to get out of therapy?

An overarching goal of therapy is to enhance your sense of well-being and satisfaction in life. Therapy can help you cultivate a deeper understanding of yourself, increase self-compassion, and increase your confidence in coping with difficulty. Ultimately, therapy can help you experience personal growth in many areas of your life and can be a very rewarding journey.
