Other Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept insurance?

If your insurance company reimburses for telehealth, I will submit claims on your behalf. You are responsible for deductibles and copays. If you have a high deductible and are not likely to meet your limit, we can discuss rates but it needs to be done in advance.

Is telehealth private and confidential?

My telehealth link is HIPAA compliant and your protected health information is never shared for purposes other than treatment and billing. Confidentiality does have limits which we will discuss as needed. Make sure you have a private space for your session.

Can I cancel or reschedule an appointment?

My motto is 'life happens!' I never charge for missed appointments or late cancellations, but do be kind. Let me know preferably 24 hours in advance but notice at the last minute is OK too. There's always something to catch up on!

What type of therapy do I need?

We will determine together what best suits your needs, establish goals, and monitor progress. See Services for more information.

Do you prescribe therapy animals?

I love animals and certainly recommend that people care for other living creatures. Unless you are an established client and we have discussed acquiring an animal to enhance your well-being, I decline to write letters for landlords for animals you already own. Sorry.

Homework?

There may be some recommended readings and structured exercises. Openness is essential for any real progress.

How do I request my records?

Please contact me with the records request. I will send you the release of information form. You can also have the records department from another provider or agency make the request. They will also have you sign a release.

What's with all the flowers?

Flowers make the world a more beautiful place, and noticing the "small things" can enhance your well-being. Spending time outdoors is psychological first aid!
