About the Practice
Because my practice follows the concierge model, I see fewer clients in order to offer therapy according to the needs of each person. For some that may be monthly sessions, for others, that may mean meeting weekly. All have access to additional sessions when extra support could be beneficial. With a smaller client base, I am able to better meet your schedule and offer flexibility when we feel more sessions may be helpful.
Because I do not accept insurance, I have more freedom to offer therapy according to your needs without insurance limitations while still maintaining ethical guidelines and a high standard of care.
There is no monthly fee to have access to this, all active clients will receive this level of care. I believe clients should have more access to support in order to better handle all that life throws at them and build the skills to thrive independently.
The No Surprises Act went into effect January 1, 2022 with the goal of protecting patients from unexpected bills for healthcare services. Many of its provisions do not apply directly to mental health providers. However, I am required by law to give self-pay patients a Good Faith Estimate of costs for services.
If you are billed for more than this Good Faith Estimate, you have the right to dispute the bill. You may contact me to let me know you were billed higher than the Good Faith Estimate. You may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about 4 months) of the date on the original bill. There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If the agency reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on the Good Faith Estimate. If the agency disagrees with you and agrees with the health care provider, you will have to pay the higher amount. To learn more and get a form to start the process, go to www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.
No Surprises Act
I help those feeling overwhelmed and lost in life. This can be a frustrating, disheartening and lonely period in our lives. Sometimes we present to others one way but really feel uncertainty and disconnection with little to no understanding of why it is happening or what to do about it.
Together we can work to navigate the stressors of life, find a sense of direction and build self confidence. Throughout our work, I use quantitative data to obtain the goals you have for yourself. Ultimately, you will have more satisfaction and fulfillment in life.

I'm not originally from Pennsylvania, I grew up in Virginia. I went to the University of Rochester for undergrad where I studied Psychology and American Sign Language. I lived all over the United States working in various capacities with families, couples, children and adults. I attended Duquesne University for my Master's program in Marriage and Family Counseling. I have been practicing in the field for more than 9 years. Having a virtual practice has allowed me to help those all over Pennsylvania.
