Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Will the Process Take?

The counseling process, and the time it takes for you to reach your goals, is unique for everyone. I have helped clients reach their treatment goals in as little as 8 sessions or less, and have also worked with clients on their goals for a year or more. Most of my clients find a significant reduction in their symptoms after a few months. 

Individual sessions are 53 minutes to an hour and and Intensive sessions are scheduled in 1.5 hour, half-day, and full day increments.

Will My Health Insurance Cover Therapy?

At this time I accept Anthem BCBS and Aetna. Depending on your coverage your copay will vary.

I also accept self-pay and offer a sliding scale to those who qualify. Sessions are typically $95-$150.

Contact me today to learn more about your options. Intensives are not covered by insurance at this time.

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR Therapy stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. Known as "The Gold Standard" for trauma therapy, it is an evidence-based approach to help with trauma / PTSD, depression, anxiety, phobias, and other emotional disturbances. By using bilateral stimulation (something you can see, hear or touch moving in a side-to-side pattern, such as moving your eyes back and forth) disturbing thoughts and memories are reprocessed by your brain, leading you to feel more calm and at peace. 

Is EMDR Hypnotherapy / Hypnosis?

No. Unlike hypnosis where you are put into a state where your subconscious comes to the forefront, you are completely awake an alert during EMDR. Using what's called the "dual process" model, you will be in the present moment while recalling memories from the past and reprocessing them. Neurons that "wire together fire together", so we will be intentionally re-firing your memory neurons in order to reprocess them in a healthier way. 

What are the benefits of an Intensive?

You’ve probably already tried outtalking or trying to out-logic yourself without complete or lasting success. EMDR offer something different.  Intensives are longer sessions of EMDR where you can focus on more specific, sometimes deeper rooted issues that are keeping you stuck from living your best life. If you have a specific issue you know you want to dedicate time and space to and you want to get it done in a matter of weeks instead of opening and closing the same wound for months or even years, intensives can offer you something different.


Intensives might be right for you if you:

.Are ready to move through treatment thoroughly and efficiently, by practicing and exploring new tools

.Have been in counseling before and feel you have tools and resources but you want to use them more effectively,

.Want to dedicate time to past wounds that are currently getting in the way of how you want to truly live your life,

.You want to create a greater understanding for yourself and find more internal flexibility.


Good Faith Estimate

Good Faith Estimate:

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges. 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
