What can I expect?

Our initial session will be more "information gathering" where I will ask both general and focused questions to establish a foundation for our work together. Following this "intake" session, we will identify our areas of focus (e.g. goals), and can spend each session thereafter exploring both current and presenting concerns, or broader themes to build personal insight.

Sessions are generally "talk therapy" sessions and most clients find they benefit the most from sessions when they come in with something to explore. That said, I am an interactive provider who will engage clients in thoughtful discussion and collaborate on themes and narratives for consideration throughout treatment.

What ages do you work with?

I work primarily with adults (ages 18-60+). Most of my clients average between their early twenties and late fourties. 

Do you offer in-person and/or virtual (telehealth) sessions?

I offer sessions both virtually and in person. My virtual sessions are held on HIPAA-compliant Zoom, and in person sessions are held in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Availability for in person sessions are limited and only offered on Wednesdays. All clients who reside in California will be seen virtually.

Currently, I am not accepting any new clients and have a waitlist for interested individuals. Feel free to contact me if you would like to consider work together and be added to my waitlist.

How long are sessions?

Individual therapy sessions are 53 minutes long. Intakes sessions are 60 minutes.

Therapy frequency and duration?

I offer long term therapy (as opposed to shorter term treatment measuring between 10-20 sessions) that focuses on a relational, attachment, and psychodynamic lens. As such, it is expected of new clients to engage for four consecutive weekly sessions to facilitate comfortable rapport and assess for mutual fit, prior to discussion or consideration of alternative frequencies (biweekly or monthly). Generally, most clients maintain a weekly frequency and at the onset of treatment, we will agree on a regular day and time that fits both of our schedules. 

On average, clients can expect the duration of treatment to be anywhere between six months to multiple years. 

Do you take insurance?

Yes! I believe in providing care that is relatively accessible and as such, accept insurances from a number of insurance providers:

In Massachusetts, I am in network with: Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA, Cigna, Optum (including United Healthcare), and Point 32 (including Harvard Pilgram)

In California, I am in network with: Aetna, Cigna, and Optum (including United Healthcare) 

If you do not have any of the insurances I am contracted to be in-network with, but would like to consider working with me, I can provide a superbill for reimbursement as an out-of-network provider.

For co-pay or co-insurance payments, I only accept card payments. I ask that all clients keep a card on file for autopay to simplify the process without disruptions. 

What are your private pay rates?

If you do not wish use insurance, my private pay rates are $200 per individual session and $220 for an intake session.

Do you offer reduced pay/sliding scale?

I do offer a sliding scale and reduced rate for those unable to meet my private pay rates. These rates are determined on a case by case basis.

What is your cancellation policy?

I have a strict 24 hour cancellation policy and any late notice or no show appointment will result in a cancellation fee of $100. 

Are you currently accepting clients or is there a waitlist?

I currently have a waitlist for both Massachusetts and California residents, for all formats virtual and in-person. Feel free to contact me if you would like to be added to my waitlist.
