She takes great care to bring instill hope and confidence in the youth, college women, and families that change and recovery is possible. She will address challenging seasons for families by promoting new parenting approaches, addressing unhelpful thoughts, modeling healthy assertive communication, and implementing coping strategies that appeal to the client and are effective.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
All uninsured or private pay clients have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
I will include a Good Faith Estimate as part of your intake paperwork before services begin.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
