How long does a session last?

Sessions are customized to your specific needs. In general, individual sessions are about 1 hour, while couples and family sessions range from 75-90 minutes. 

Do you accept insurance?

I do not directly bill insurance for therapy sessions. But if you have a PPO, you may be eligible for a partial reimbursement of your session fee. I can provide you with a superbill that has everything your insurance company would need to reimburse you. You would then be responsible for submitting the superbill to your insurance provider for partial reimbursement. 

What are your rates?

I am a master therapist with over 30 years of experience, co-founder for the Center for Healing Shame, an internationally sought-after keynote speaker, author, teacher, and director. I’ve helped thousands of people and saved hundreds of relationships. If you are ready for deep, accelerated support, I can help. My rate is $200 per hour for individuals. Couples sessions are $250 for 75 minutes.
