What do sessions cost?

My rates are:   $140 for an intake / initial assessment

$120 for 60 min individual or couple session

$100 for 45 min individual session. 

If you choose to use your insurance, they may cover some or all of the costs.  It is helpful and highly recommended to call and ask them before scheduling an appointment.

Do you accept my insurance?

At this time, I accept Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, United Behavioral Health, and UMR.  I am also a provider for several EAPs.  Call your EAP office to set up a referral.

What can I expect in the first session?

The first session will cover things like privacy, confidentiality, office policies and procedures, and expectations for client and therapist.  I'll also ask you a lot of questions about you!  It's important to me in the first session that we both leave feeling excited to meet again and continue the conversation, and also that I know enough about what's going on to make sure I'm a good fit for you!

How do I schedule an appointment?

Text, email, or request an appointment using the Client Portal.  I rarely have time  to return calls, so it may take a few days if you prefer a phone call. 
You'll need a few minutes (10 min) to answer some questions about yourself, the reasons you're seeking services, and about your insurance or costs.

Where are you located

Our office is located between Oak St and Cedar St, across from New Palestine United Church on US 52 / Main Street.  New Palestine High School is one block away.  

Please use the front entrance (facing 52) with the red awning.  There are two waiting areas inside.

What are your privacy practices?

My Notice of Privacy Practices is available here.  If you'd like to exercise those rights, please send the request via email.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit or call 800-985-3059.
