SERVICES AND FEES

I provide individual psychotherapy, EMDR, consultation, and a variety of groups and workshops. Read on for details about each of these services.

 

 

INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

I offer individual psychotherapy to adults (18+) who reside anywhere within the state of Pennsylvania. Psychotherapy sessions are virtual, via a secure, HIPAA-compliant video platform. You can expect virtual sessions with me to feel and proceed much like in-person sessions ― although I won't be able to make you a cup of tea when you arrive, you'll find that connection, subtle attention, intuition, and body awareness will be very present in our virtual work. In addition to the breadth of approaches I draw from in tailoring therapy to individual needs, I am able to incorporate dream work, somatic/movement-based practices, and mindfulness training into the therapy process according to client needs. I work with clients experiencing concerns including:

 

  • Grief and loss

  • Self-esteem issues

  • Trauma

  • Anxiety and panic

  • Abuse 

  • Body image issues

  • Relationship concerns

  • Family of origin issues

  • Emotional aspects of chronic and terminal illness

  • End of life concerns

  • Racial identity concerns, including white fragility/white racial consciousness

  • LGBTQIA+ issues

  • Life transitions

  • Spiritual concerns

  • Pain for the world, i.e. despair regarding sociopolitical and environmental issues


 

EMDR

EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is categorized as an “A” level treatment for trauma and PTSD by the World Health Organization. Studies show that it can also be effective for phobias, anxiety, and grief, among other struggles. I can offer EMDR as part of ongoing psychotherapy or as a standalone treatment. If you are interested in EMDR, I’ll help you determine whether you will be able to begin it right away, or whether we will need to engage in some initial psychotherapy before beginning EMDR. I conduct EMDR sessions virtually via a secure, HIPAA-compliant video platform. I have completed EMDR training with an EMDRIA-approved training program. 

CONSULTATION

I provide consultation services to those wishing to develop ritual practices to support the work of grieving personal, political, and/or ecological losses. I also offer consultation to those seeking to bring deeper awareness and intentionality to their relationships with nature and place. 

 

GROUPS AND WORKSHOPS

New groups and workshops will be advertised on this website as they become available. Past themes have included: 

  • oppression and mental health

  • mental wellness and the menstrual cycle

  • rediscovering the body as part of nature

  • self-care for activists and organizers


 

FEES

 

Cost per psychotherapy session or EMDR session: $150

Sliding scale: I reserve a portion of my practice for sliding scale clients. These slots are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. The sliding scale I use is income-based. Please contact me with any questions about this form of payment. 

 

Insurance: I am an out-of-network provider for most insurance plans that offer out-of-network benefits. Many plans with out-of-network benefits will reimburse a portion of the cost of therapy. If you opt to use your out-of-network benefits, I will provide you with a document each month that you can submit to your insurance company in order to receive reimbursement. Before deciding to use your out-of-network benefits, verify your benefits and make sure you understand how this coverage will work. Ask the following questions when you call your insurance company:

  • Do I have out-of-network benefits for outpatient mental health?

  • Do I have to meet a deductible before my out-of-network care will be reimbursed?

  • If there is a deductible, how much of it has been met so far this year?

  • How much will I be reimbursed for out-of-network mental health?

  • Is my coverage for out-of-network teletherapy (virtual therapy) the same as my coverage for out-of-network in-person therapy?

  • How do I submit superbills for reimbursement? (A "superbill" is a document I will provide you each month to submit to your insurer. It shows how much you paid me.)

  • Can I use these benefits with any out-of-network therapist, or is there a specific pool of out-of-network therapists I have to choose from?

  • Is there a limit to the number of sessions I can get reimbursed per year?

  • Do I need a referral from an in-network provider to get reimbursed for seeing an out-of-network provider?

  • If a referral is required, can my PCP make this referral or does a specialist need to make it?

Cost for consultation: Please contact me for current consultation rates.
