Frequently Asked Questions

All the Answers You Seek, In One Place

Do you take insurance?

Yes! I'm currently in-network with Optum, Aetna, Cigna, Highmark, UPMC, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. I'm able to provide Superbills for insurance companies that I am not in-network with, which you can use to seek reimbursement for the session fee. If you cannot or do not want to use your insurance, we can discuss self-pay rates. The self-pay rates will be comparable to the amount that insurance companies reimburse.

What can I expect from therapy?

Therapy is a collaborative process where we work together to establish goals and initiate change. The process starts with an intake session, which gives me an opportunity to learn all about you.  Once we've established our focus of treatment, we will meet consistently to discuss your progress and to work through any barriers that you encounter.

Do you only treat OCD and eating disorders?

Nope. Although I have specialized training with these populations, I also have experience treating other common mental health issues, including: depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, trauma, mood disorders, and substance misuse. I can also help you navigate life's common problems, including relationship issues, work stress, and grief.

What is your cancellation policy?

I require 48-hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule a session. If you cancel within 48 hours of the appointment, you will be charged a $75 cancellation fee. My cancellation policy exists to protect my time and the time of all of my clients. If you cancel an appointment with enough notice, I am able to offer that appointment time to somebody else who may need it. Cancellation or rescheduling requests can be sent via email.

Do you provide inclusive and culturally-sensitive care?

Yes! It is my commitment to my clients to provide psychotherapy that is sensitive to their various identities. I am dedicated to creating safe spaces for all clients, and I welcome clients from any race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, class, body shape and size, and ability status to seek treatment. I approach work with clients from a space of cultural humility and am committed to an ongoing process of learning. I firmly believe that mental health is a human right for all.

What kind of training and consultation do you offer?

I have developed a 6-hour training on the treatment of OCD and a 2-hour training on the treatment of eating disorders. Please contact me if you would like me to provide training to your organization. I also provide personalized consultation to other mental health professionals for clinical cases. If you're feeling stuck with a client who has OCD or an eating disorder, please contact me using my contact form or via email to inquire about a professional consultation.

The No Surprises Act

Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment. 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. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, or how to dispute a bill, see your Estimate, or visit
