Virtual Services, Fees and Insurance

It’s important that mental health services are accessible for everyone.

My session fee is $200 for 45-minute appointments and, occasionally, I am able to offer sliding scale appointments for $70 per session for those who have financial need. I also take Lyra and Modern Health EAPs and can provide superbills for out-of-network health insurance plans.

Because I work with individuals with various illnesses, to ensure the health and safety of my immunocompromised clients, therapy sessions are conducted through a secure, HIPAA compliant video platform.

If in-person services are requested in St. Pete, Florida, we can discuss options to meet outdoors in a private garden or for walk-and-talk sessions.

Virtual Therapy for Adults and Teens

My approach to therapy is both client-centered and solution-focused, where I tailor my treatment modalities to the individual needs of my clients. I use evidence-based techniques to help you achieve your goals and strengthen your relationships.

Whether you’re dealing with issues related to cancer, chronic illness, life transitions, relationship challenges, or grief, I’m here to help. With virtual therapy, you can receive the support you need without having to leave your home or disrupt your schedule.

Please note: clients must be located in either California, Florida or North Carolina (where I hold state licenses) to receive virtual services due state and federal laws. I am unable to see clients outside of these states.

Cancer and Chronic Illness Support

If you or someone you care about are experiencing the emotional toll of cancer or chronic illness, I understand how difficult and overwhelming this can be. It’s completely normal to feel a range of emotions, from fear and sadness to anger and confusion.

As a therapist with ten years of experience specializing in cancer, chronic illness and grief, my goal is to provide a safe and supportive space where you can explore these emotions, address your concerns, and develop effective coping strategies to help you navigate this difficult time. I believe that everyone has the capacity for resilience and healing, and I’m committed to helping you find your own path towards greater well-being and connection.

Grief and Loss

Are you struggling with the pain of losing a loved one? Are you finding it difficult to cope with the overwhelming emotions of grief? If so, you’re not alone. Dealing with loss and grief is a challenging process that requires patience, support, and guidance. That’s where I come in.

Grief is a natural response to loss. There’s no “normal” timeline and typically no right or wrong way to grieve. Sharing your story with someone can help ease your pain, process so many of the complex feelings you may be experiencing, and aid in feeling less alone. Losses aren’t just from losing a loved one – they can be from medical illness, job loss, housing loss, infertility, abortion, ending of a relationship. I have extensive grief training and grief experience, both personally and professionally, including a one year post-graduate program in thanatology.

Insurance & Out of Network Options

Insurances I currently accept:

  • Lyra Health (Employee Assistance Program)
  • Modern Health (Employee Assistance Program)

I am considered an “Out of Network” provider for all other insurances and will provide you with a Superbill to submit to your insurance company upon request. 

Although you may still see my name listed in one of the directories below, I am no longer accepting the following insurances:

  • Kaiser
  • United Healthcare
  • Optum

Reduced Fee Sessions

Therapy is an investment in your relationship with yourself and others, a worthy investment of your time and emotions. It is also a financial investment as well. I believe therapy should be accessible for everyone, so periodically I will accept sliding scale clients for $70 per session through Open Path Psychotherapy Collective who are able to demonstrate financial need.  As of May 2023: all sliding scale spots are filled at this time.

All Are Welcome Here

I believe in equality for everybody.
