There is no Greater Agony than Bearing the Untold Story Inside of You ~ Maya Angelou
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 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 couples. 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.
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 do not accept insurance, due to the resources it takes to manage an insurance practice. You may ask why? I have found that I want to keep my practice small and really focus on YOU in your time. That resource is largely myself and being FULLY present for your session. This means I need to invest in training, consultation, and personal development to provide this high-level service. I believe this makes me a therapist that is dialed into your needs and concerned with your transformation. 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.
- $300-$400 for intensive services (please request a breakdown of packages and payment plans)
- $250 for an initial, testing, consultation, and couples sessions. (60 mins)
- $200 for individual sessions (50 minutes).
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.
