All About Therapy

01.

What your therapist provides: 

  • A secure professional online office space where your therapist will not be interrupted and therapy will not be disrupted. 

  • State of the art technology and a strong business wifi connection. 

  • A HIPAA compliant video platform on which to meet via Simple Practice that ensures your privacy and data are kept safe. 

What you will need: 

  • A secure area where you have privacy and are comfortable for a 50-55 minute session. 

  • If you have an iPad or phone you can download the Simple Practice App or you can use your laptop and just click on the link I send you for each session. 

  • Strong wifi or cell phone service. Wifi works best.

  • A headset is helpful but not necessary.

Benefits of online therapy: 

  • Your pets are welcome to attend. 

  • If your kids interrupt or you have to deal with a family situation for a minute or two that is okay. 

  • You don't have to dress up, you can be casual and relaxed. 

  • You don't have to drive into the office, saving both time and money. 

  • You can receive therapy services from any licensed therapist in the state of Michigan.

The cost of therapy is $140.00 per 55-minute session. I can bill BCBS, BCN, Cigna, Priority Health, Lyra or Medicare directly for you. You may have a copay, which means that your insurance may expect you to pay a set amount for each therapy session. You might also have a deductible which means that your insurance will pay for medical/mental health expenses after you have paid for a set amount out of pocket or by using your health savings account.  Most insurance plans pay for telehealth services. It is always advisable to check with your insurance provider to determine what expenses you will be liable for if any.  All copays are due the day of your appointment and can be paid online. You can use the following form to contact your insurance company to know your expenses ahead of time.

It is important to determine if I am a good fit for you. Please read my profile but feel free to message me if you have any additional questions. I operate from an advanced generalist perspective meaning that I utilize multiple methods of therapy including ACT, CBT,  DBT, Mindfulness, Meditation, Art Therapy, Therapeutic Journaling, Skills Training, Psychotherapy, the Enneagram, Internal Family Systems, Trauma-Informed, and Exposure & Response Prevention.

Couples and families are welcome to book sessions. They are billed at the same rate as individual therapy. In couples and family therapy we focus on communication and the ability to solve problems together. I have had training in both the Gottman Method and Nonviolent Communication.
