How much is the fee?
I charge $150 for a 50-minute session. I have a few openings in my schedule each week for those who cannot pay my full fee. The amount of the reduced fee is negotiated based on individual circumstances. My clients pay for each session (check, cash or Venmo) at the time of service.

Can I use my insurance?
Many of my clients file for reimbursement from their insurance companies. I provide a receipt for payment at each session. The receipt has all the information the insurance company needs to process a claim. Because I am not on insurance “panels” I am considered an “out-of-network” provider. This will likely mean that your insurance company will reimburse you at a lower rate than they would an in-network provider. If it is important for you to know in advance what your insurance will cover, I advise you to contact them. Also, be aware that in order for your claim to be considered for reimbursement, your insurance company will require that I provide a diagnostic code representing one of the mental/behavioral disorders found in the DSM 5 diagnostic manual. 

How do I get started?
You can call me at (615) 385-9239 or complete the contact form on my website to schedule an appointment. I schedule clients on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. I return calls and schedule appointments personally.

What additional information will you need from me?
You can print and complete the following forms prior to our first appointment.

What is a “free phone consultation”?
I offer this service to encourage you to interview me and discuss treatment options. This will help us both determine whether I am the right therapist for you. If it seems that isn’t the case, I will be happy to suggest other referral sources.
