What types of therapy do you provide?

My passion is seeing the change that therapy can bring. A large part of that is your comfort with me! That’s why I offer a free 15 minute consultation. There is actual wonderful data about the relationship between the fit between the therapist and client.  Please see this article about better outcomes in therapy based on the therapeutic relationship.

I am deeply passionate about EMDR, brain injury, and couples work, it energizes me to help people reach truly transformative change.  I also believe that I work best in the intensive format, I love deep work with individuals and groups. To that end, I continually seek clinical consultation and clinical supervision on my skills to make myself a more competent and clinically excellent therapist. I have completed a number of EMDR trainings including two basic trainings, attachment based EMDR, and currently working towards certification from a consultant with expertise with EMDR and brain injury.

I provide therapy for those after a brain injury or concussion to manage difficult mental health symptoms such as anxiety and depression.  They are quite common after an injury and I offered targeted solutions to aid in your TOTAL recovery.  

Please note, I’m only able to provide therapy and intensives (online or in my Freeport office) to those in Maine only.

What are your fees?

I accept Medicare primary, Harvard Pilgrim, Optum, and VACCN currently. Intensive services are not typically covered for these plans. 

If you are not in network for these plans  I will provide a super bill for you to bill out of network claims. You can receive 40-70% of this fee back if your insurance company offers out-of-network benefits (please call to verify with your plans details and any reimbursement you may expect).  My assistant can help you understand your benefits, and assist in the billing process.

What is your cancellation policy?

For weekly clients only: if we are working together in treatment, I will reserve times for you on a weekly or biweekly basis. Since I have this time reserved for you, I cannot schedule anything else in it. When we agree to work together, we agree to this time weekly or every other week. Thus, you are expected to use that time or pay for the time that I am holding for you.  I do allow a once yearly cancellation (within 24 hours).  Any session that is missed can also be made up (rescheduled) within 3 weeks. So you can have 2 sessions in the same week or reschedule to a different day if my schedule allows. Sessions cancelled by me for any reason will not be charged.

For intensive clients: one week cancellation is required (I will reschedule your intensive one time).  A $500 deposit is required.
