*Providing mental health therapy  in Maryland*

Free Initial Consultation

If you're interested in learning more, please reach out to schedule a free 20 minute phone consultation. 

We can discuss your needs, my expertise, and begin to determine if we're a good fit for your journey. I'm open to any questions you may have and no need to worry if you're not sure where to start– I can guide us. We may decide we're a good fit or I may refer you to a colleague; it's important that you get the right fit for where you are on your journey. 

Initial Evaluation

During your initial evaluation, we'll follow up together on your already completed paperwork, discussing what lights you up and clarifying your goals in therapy. We'll have the chance to talk more about what you're going through right now and we'll begin to create a plan for our time together.                                                      Cost $180


Sessions are 50 minutes and are tailored to fit your needs. My goal is to help you feel calm and centered before the end of the session. We will set goals and practice exercises for you to use between sessions so you can integrate changes into your everyday life. We'll check in about the pace and comfort of therapy for you, with gentle nudges toward change when you're ready.                                                                                                                 Cost $180 for 50 mins $225 for 65 mins

         Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice are subject to a fee. 

Out-of-Network Information

I am an out-of-network (OON) provider in Maryland, so I do not contract directly with insurance companies. I do this for a number of reasons, including privacy and autonomy during care. You will need to contact your insurance company for details on their reimbursement process. I can provide monthly proof of payment called a Superbill that you would submit according to their process.

Reduced-Fee Information

In my practice, I have a small number of sliding-scale slots for those experiencing hardship or with reduced incomes, the lowest of which are reserved for BIPOC, gender queer folx, and therapists in community/ public mental health seeking supervision and consultation. These slots are full at this time. 

I don't ever want someone who is having a positive therapy experience with me to stop our work together because life circumstances change their financial reality for them. If you are a current client and my fee is a concern, please discuss it with me. If I am unable to accommodate your financial situation, I will provide you with referrals.

Precious soul. May I please share something with you? Your grief is not an inconvenience. I pray that when you are hurting and lonely, you will ask someone, the right someone, to hold you . . . Your pain is not a burden. Ask to be held sacredly. Be that brave.
