Frequently Asked Questions 

Do you offer in-person sessions?

I am not currently offering in-person sessions. I began offering Teletherapy when the COVID-19 pandemic began. I do have a physical office with Counseling Professionals PLLC in downtown Raleigh. In full transparency, I  really enjoy the flexibility that offering teletherapy affords my clients and 
I  (such as offering late night appointments). While at some point I may return to in-person services if you have a strong desire to work with someone face-to-face I'd be happy to refer you to a colleague.  

Do you offer sliding scale fees?

Yes. I believe that everyone should have access to mental health services. I set aside 25% of my case load to serve clients in need of reduce rate counseling. In these cases I allow clients to determine what they are able to pay. I am also always happy to set up payment plans for clients who are not utilizing sliding scale, but who face sudden unforeseen financial  hardship. 

Do you offer free consultations?

 

Yep. I am happy to speak with folks for a free 15 minute consultation to ensure that we are a good fit for each other. 

What is Teletherapy like?

Pretty much just like going to therapy but from home! I utilize a HIPAA compliant portal to meet with folks via video. This portal allows you to schedule sessions, complete intake documents, set up auto payments and attend sessions. Feel free to pull up in your pjs, with lunch, or with your fur baby. 

How much does X insurance plan charge per session?

 

If you are using insurance then they set the session rate. This will vary from insurance to insurance. The best way to learn this information is to call your insurance directly. My out-of-network rates are $120.00 for

individual therapy sessions.

Do you work with men?

 

I do! I am happy to work with men however often times when I share my therapeutic areas of focus and specialities men opt to be referred to another provider. I want to ensure that all clients are set up for success-if that means referring to a provider who has more experience working with men then, great!
