Psychotherapy, aka "talk therapy," is a general term describing the treatment of mental distress by talking with a trained therapist. It is typically a collaborative and interactive process between the therapist and the client and involves active participation by the client.
At this time, I am not in-network with any insurance companies. Payments are processed at the end of each session. I accept cash, checks, HSA, FSA, credit, and debit cards.
Many insurance plans have some form of out-of-network mental health benefits coverage. I recommend calling your specific insurance company to learn if your plan providers "out of network" benefits for "outpatient office visits" with a "Licensed Master Social Worker". You will need to use those terms when contacting your insurance company.
If you do have benefits, I will provide you with a receipt of services (also known as a "superbill") at the end of each month, and you will coordinate directly with your insurance company to claim your benefits. Alternatively, you can submit your superbills through Reimbursify. Your first claim is processed for free, but subsequent claims will cost $3.99 each unless you purchase a 10-pack for $29.99.

I offer both in-person and virtual appointments. I currently work out of two office locations on different days of the week.
Yes! I offer a free 10-to-15 minute phone consultation to all prospective clients.
We will chat briefly about what you would like to work on in therapy and the methods I offer that could help you.
This is not meant to be a therapy session but is instead a chance for you to ask any questions that would help you decide if you would like to schedule a session.
The first session is our opportunity to get to know one another. For our first session to be as effective as possible, please complete any new client paperwork sent through Simple Practice (the client portal) 24 hours before your appointment.
In the session, we will review administrative items and any outstanding questions you may have about logistics or my approach. The second part of our session mirrors a free-flowing conversation. It is important to me that you feel comfortable and understood. I hope that you feel some relief as we embark on this journey together.
I have a 48-hour cancellation and rescheduling policy. The full session fee will apply for cancellations or rescheduling requests made less than 48 hours in advance, with the exception of emergencies.
Welcome! I offer both in-person and virtual sessions to clients based in Texas. Reach out if you'd like to schedule your free 20-minute consultation with me.
