How to begin
To get started, reach out to me for a brief, free phone consultation in which we will determine whether your needs match with what I offer. At the beginning of therapy, we will take time to do a thorough assessment and discuss the focus and goals. For those who are concerned about expenses, we can discuss strategies to maximize benefit while keeping time in therapy to a minimum.
I currently offer therapy both in-person in south Austin and virtually in the state of Texas. There is now considerable scientific evidence that teletherapy is no less effective than face-to-face therapy.
As of now (11/27/22), I have a short waitlist, and I am expecting to be able to take new patients beginning in January 2023.
My rate for individual sessions is 180 dollars for 60 minutes, and it is prorated for other times as necessary. I do not accept insurance. A portion of my sessions are based on a sliding scale fee for patients for whom the fee would be a significant financial burden. Documentation of finances is required for sliding scale eligibility.
I primarily schedule sessions during business hours (Monday-Friday from 9-5), and I schedule a few sessions in early evenings and mid-morning Saturdays. We can discuss scheduling further during the brief phone consultation.
