Starting the process

 

The First Session and Beyond

Initial sessions are focused on obtaining history and relevant information regarding presenting concerns, as well as collaborating to develop treatment goals.

 

From there, the structure of sessions and therapeutic techniques used are tailored to each individual client depending on needs, presenting concerns, and interest in incorporating yoga philosophy and practice into treatment.

Insurance Coverage

I am in-network with Medica, United Healthcare, Aetna, Preferred One, UCare (MA plan), Optum, Hennepin Health, Medicare and Medicaid (Medical Assistance), and am out-of-network with most other insurance plans. I encourage you to contact your insurance company to explore your coverage options, and I will work to help you navigate the process as needed.

 

I submit billing to insurance companies on your behalf for both in-network and out-of-network services.

Session Fees

Initial intake sessions are 60 minutes and are billed at $180. Standard follow-up psychotherapy sessions are 45-55 minutes, and are billed at $140 per therapy hour. I also offer ongoing 60-75 minute sessions at an increased rate, if needed or requested.

 

I am willing to negotiate income-based sliding fees as needed for clients who do not have insurance coverage, and am happy to discuss options by phone or at our initial session.

Services Offered

In additional to our regularly scheduled therapy sessions, I offer emergency and same-day appointments based on my availability.

 

In addition to psychotherapy, I also offer clinical social work supervision. Please contact me for more information regarding my supervision services and fees.
