I invite you to call me and we can begin with a phone consultation. During a phone consultation, we can discuss what you are looking for and how I could be of help. I am also happy to answer any questions about scheduling, health insurance coverage possibilities, and details of my fees. It is important to me to be able to offer services to people of all economic means, so I welcome discussions of my fees and financing options. 

How do I schedule an appointment? 

I offer both daytime and evening appointments. When scheduling an appointment, please let me know if there is a day and/or time of day that you prefer. Therapy appointments are usually available within a week. To schedule an appointment, you may call, email, or submit the contact form below.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment? Please call and give as much notice as possible if you need to cancel or change an appointment. In situations where you are unable to give 24 hour notice or if notice is not given, you may be charged for the session. 

Do you accept health insurance for therapy services? Yes, I am in network with the Duke Student Insurance Plan and the NC State Health Plan / Blue Cross Blue Shield (except Blue Home plans). If you have insurance coverage with one of these companies that you would like to use, I will subit claims on your behalf to assist with insurance reimbursement. In many situations, insurance companies limit reimursement amounts. In these circustances, you will not be charged the difference between my regular fee and the cap placed by insurance. For all other insurance companies, you may have out of network benefts. I also offer a limited number of sliding scale positions.

What can I expect at the first session? If you haven't ever been in therapy before, you may be wondering what it will be like. It is important to me to create an open, non-judgemental environment in which people can discuss what ever is most important to them at any point in time. The first session is an opportunity for you to get an idea of how I work. In addition, I can begin to get to know you, and we can start to feel what the dynamic between us may be like. This helps to determine that we would be a good fit to work with one another. During the first meeting together, I am eager to hear what it is that brings you to start therapy. I can then discuss with you how I think I may be of help.


How long does therapy last? Sessions are usually once a week and last 50 minutes. The duration of therapeutic work is based entirely on individual needs. 


 For information not mentioned here, or other questions, you are welcome to call me and you can leave a confidential voicemail message at any time. I check my messages multiple times a day, and I am usually able to return calls within one business day.
