Frequently Asked Questions

What is an insurance deductible ?

A health insurance deductible is an amount you have to pay toward the cost of your healthcare bills before your insurance company begins to cover your costs. Deductibles can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars depending on your insurance plan and they typically renew every year. If your health insurance comes with one or more deductibles, you’ll end up paying out of pocket for some services. Once you’ve paid the full amount of the deductible, your insurance shares or fully pays the costs for your care. 


Do you work with children?

The age I work with is 16 and above. I will, however, provide ADHD medication(only) treatment to patients under the age of 16. 


What should I expect from therapy?

  • Every session you won't have a breakthrough
  • Therapy is ideally more preventative than crisis care
  • Your therapist may trigger you at times
  • sometimes our relationship with your therapist is the work
  • Therapy can be fun
  • It's not always childhood trauma
  • Sometimes healing is not about fixing
