What would you like to know?

Do you offer a free consultation?

I offer free-of-charge, 20-minute consultations to discuss your needs and see if we’re a good match.

What is your payment policy?

Payment via credit card or electronic transfer of funds is expected at the time of service. If preferred, you can arrange to pay via check or cash.

What is your insurance policy?

I don’t participate in insurance plans to minimize insurance intrusion into treatment. By providing out-of-network therapy, I can better protect your confidentiality and offer you the treatment you need. If you have out-of-network benefits, you can seek reimbursement for therapy with me.

What are your rates?

Please inquire directly about my rates, as they are subject to adjustments.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you must cancel, please do so at least 24 hours in advance. Missed sessions and cancellations with less than 24h notice will be charged the full fee. As a courtesy to other patients waiting for an opening, the sooner you can let me know about your scheduling conflict, the better I can serve all the patients in my care.

Do you offer in-person or virtual therapy?

I offer both virtual and in-person sessions in my office at the Wellesley/Newton line.

What is your confidentiality policy?

I protect the confidentiality of our encounters and will not disclose any privileged information without your written permission, other than in exceptional circumstances involving self-harm or risk of injury to others.

What’s the length of the sessions?

Both individual and couples therapy sessions are 50 minutes in length.

How do I know if I need individual, couples, or sex therapy?

Individual and relational needs can be challenging to separate. If you’re not sure which treatment modality will best serve your needs, I can help you discern.

What is the recommended frequency of meetings?

For optimal therapeutic results, weekly sessions are recommended. Some patients with specific needs may benefit from more frequent sessions, while others may find meeting every other week or as needed sufficient.

What is the length of treatment?

Treatment duration varies based on the issue, ranging from a few sessions for specific concerns to months or years for complex problems. Lengthy treatment isn’t a failure; it indicates ongoing need. Therapy typically concludes when individuals experience improvement and no longer require regular support.
