Frequently Asked Questions
You may feel overwhelmed in searching for a therapist. You already have so much going on in your life. You may be scared to pick the wrong therapist. This already feels brave enough just exploring a therapist’s website. I totally understand. It is a brave choice to ask for help and I want to make sure you find right fit too, which is why I offer a free 10-minute phone consultation to tell you more about the work I do with those struggling with trauma recovery, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, life transitions, and self-worth.
You matter. Your story matters.
How do I know if I need counseling?
How do I choose a therapist?
When you begin to notice your anxiety, stress, depression or mood are impacting either your relationships, work, or health is when counseling is indicated to help you. Also, if you have a history of trauma or are going through a stressful season of life (job changes, becoming a mother, divorce, death of a loved one, etc.) are all experiences that may increase your need to counseling.
Choosing a therapist is a very personal process. Referrals from a doctor or loved one is often a first step, but looking at a therapist’s specialities can be another great option. Ultimately, speaking with a therapist to make sure they are a good fit for your needs is the best option.
Are you taking new clients?
Who do you work with?
When do you see clients?
Yes, I am currently taking new clients in Tennessee for Telehealth and in person individual sessions. I do not see children, teens or couples.
I work with motivated adults who are navigating trauma and anxiety as well as depression, grief/loss, life transitions, and self-esteem. I love helping others enhance their resiliency and re-discover confidence and self-worth.
Appointment times vary with Saturday and limited evening availability.
What are your rates and how can I pay?
Will my insurance cover this?
My rates are $120 per 50-minute session. I do offer some sliding scale slots based upon availability. I accept debit/credit cards, cash, and check. Fee is due at the time of the appointment.
I do not take insurance, but I do provide a form for you if you want to pursue insurance reimbursement. Here are some important factors to keep in mind: your insurance would need to reimburse an out of network provider and you would need to meet the criteria for a medical diagnosis (e.g. anxiety, depression, or post traumatic stress disorder). If requested, I will provide the documentation, but you will be responsible for seeking reimbursement from your insurance. Each insurance company and plan vary with how they reimburse and how much they financially reimburse.
