Frequently Asked Questions

General

What are your fees for therapy?

My fee is $140 per 55 minute session.

When do you schedule sessions?

Generally, I book appointments between 8 am and 4 pm Monday through Friday.  I don’t schedule appointments on evenings and weekends, but many of my associates do.

Do you accept insurance?

I am an out of network provider for most insurance plans. Many insurance policies provide some form of “out of network coverage” which permits you to choose your preferred provider. In those cases, you would pay me in full at the time of service, and then file a claim with the insurance company for partial reimbursement of the fee you have paid me. I am happy to provide you with monthly statements of services rendered and to help you with the filing process.

To determine if you have out of network mental health coverage, the first thing you should do is check with your insurance carrier. Check your coverage carefully and find the answers to the following questions:

Do I have out of network mental health benefits?
How much does my insurance reimburse for an out-of-network provider?
Are services from a Licensed Professional Counselor covered under my out of network mental health benefits?

Do you offer a sliding scale?

I do not offer sliding scale services at this time.

However, I do supervise counseling interns who are able to provide counseling services on an affordable sliding scale of $60 to $100 per session.  You can learn more about these services here.

Can I use a heath savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA) to pay for my therapy?

Most likely, yes.  However, I cannot charge HSA and FSA debit cards in my office.  But, I am happy to furnish you with a statement of services rendered, so you have the documentation required to reimburse yourself for your out of pocket expenses.  You may also request your plan provider submit payment to me directly in advance for a certain number of sessions by sending me a check in the mail.

Each plan is different, and it is important that you call to determine the easiest way for you to access your HSA or FSA funds.

Where are you located?

My office is located at 8700 Manchaca Road, Suite 806, Austin, Texas, 78748. Detailed directions will be given when the initial appointment is scheduled. Please check my Contact page for more details.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you are unable to make an appointment, please give at least 24 hour notice. Failure to give this notice will result in a charge of the full session fee. You may email me or call me to cancel appointments.

What should I do in case of an emergency?

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911 or go to an emergency room. If it is not a medical emergency but you need to speak to someone immediately, please call the county crisis helpline at (512) 472-4357.

How do I schedule an appointment?

The fastest way to set up an appointment is by sending me an email offering days of the week and times of day that work for you.  The more times and days you offer, the more likely we are to find a match!

You can call me to set up an appointment directly at (512)-850-6781 or send a request via email.

Who do you work with?

I have a passion for helping people-pleasers.  But, I have a very diverse practice and work with all kinds of people.  Touch base and we can chat about what you want to work on.  If you’d like, you can read more about who I help and how I work.
