Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect from therapy?

Making the decision to go to therapy can be difficult and requires courage, so it can be normal to feel nervous or uncertain. I am committed to supporting you through this process, and believe the more comfortable you feel in the beginning sessions, the more open you will be.

This will help provide a connection to be understood, seen, heard, and validated. My style of therapy is warm and relational in nature, and believe our relationship will lead and guide the way of our therapy. I also believe that therapy can be practical in nature, and that the client sets the pace and tone for their progress. 

In the first session, I will meet you in the waiting room at our appointment time, and lead you to my office. Once we have a seat, you will be given the space to begin to share your story and what brings you into therapy.

By the end of the session we will discuss if we have a potential for a good therapeutic relationship and what your treatment will entail.

How do I make an appointment?

Visit the Contact page to send me an email, or call me at (913) 444-9750.

Call for a free 15-20 minute phone consultation to see how I might best support you.

How often will we meet?

Most people come in once a week. If you desire deeper personal growth, more in depth work, or you are in a crisis I do see people twice a week as well.

Once we have met your desired goals, or there is symptom reduction we will begin to reduce the frequency of our sessions.

Standard practice of care is a minimum of once a week or bi-weekly for 60 minutes.

Do you accept insurance?

I currently am an in-network provider with Aetna for residents of Kansas through the use of a third party billing company, Alma. If you hold insurance outside of this provider, therapy is self-pay. If you are currently interested in using an insurance that I am not in-network with, I am happy to provide a superbill for you to submit to your insurance to bill your out of network benefits.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept HSA, FSA, most major credit cards, and debit cards, cash and check. Payment is collected at the time of service. 

The cost of the initial assessment appointment is charged at a flat fee of $125. Follow-up therapy appointments are 45-60 minutes, and a sliding scale fee can be applied.
