Getting Started

People begin the process of psychotherapy by calling my office at 615-386-0201 to schedule an appointment. At our initial session we will decide whether or not to begin our work together.  If it appears that you may be better served by another therapist, I will help you by providing referrals.  We will meet at least once a week initially in order to establish a therapeutic relationship and get you feeling better as quickly as possible.

Sessions are fifty minutes in length and the fee is $170.00 per session. I do not charge an additional fee for couples or for family therapy. Phone calls over fifteen minutes in length will be charged.

Insurance Policy

Some insurance policies do provide coverage for a limited number of psychotherapy sessions. However, they all require that a medical diagnosis be provided and that personal information be disclosed. Once you file your insurance, you have no control over who has access to that information.  I am not on insurance panels for this reason, and do not accept insurance as payment. If you wish to file for reimbursement with your insurance company, I will complete a health claim form and provide a diagnosis for you for a fee of $20.00. You may then have the insurance company reimburse you directly for out-of-network benefits.

Cancellation Policy

My cancellation policy is designed to provide both of us as much flexibility as possible.  Sessions that are cancelled 4 business days in advance will not be charged. Sessions that are cancelled, but rescheduled within 4 business days will not be charged. Cancellations less than four business days prior will not be charged if another individual makes an appointment for that time. Occasionally a true emergency occurs that prevents rescheduling, resulting in no charge.
