How long will this take?

My goal is to work myself out of a job as soon as possible, helping your child and family heal, while ensuring that your positive changes last for years and years to come. Toward this end, I partner with families in an intense, focused, and relatively short-term way. I encourage most families to plan for 3-6 months of weekly sessions, and we continuously evaluate our progress.

Children come first. I choose to work with highly motivated parents who prioritize their child’s mental healthcare in a big way. My folks show up ready to do the work and rise to the challenges. They attend appointments consistently during our short season together because they see therapy as an investment in their lifelong relationship with their child. This high level of energy, enthusiasm and commitment propels our work and leads to deeper changes for children, sooner. I love seeing children heal quickly, and I don’t believe therapy should last forever!

What is your fee?

My fee is $160 per session. I accept check, credit card or HSA, at the time of your appointment.

Do you accept insurance?

I am “out-of-network” with all insurance companies. If you wish to use your insurance, you will pay my full fee upfront, and your insurance company may reimburse a percentage to you directly, based on the specifics of your plan. You would need to call your insurance company to work out the details

My family can't afford this, but my child needs help now. What are my options?

If your child has insurance that will help you pay for therapy, you can easily find an "in-network" therapist by searching by your insurance provider on Psychology Today's website or by contacting your insurance company directly for a list local of providers.

If your child doesn't have insurance (or there are no providers accepting the insurance plan you have, or your co-pay is unaffordable, or your high deductible hasn't been met), I recommend becoming a member of Open Path Psychotherapy Collective for a one-time fee of $49. If you can afford $30-60 per session, this is an amazing option as many wonderful therapists in Asheville participate. 

If $30-60/week is not workable, call The Asheville Center for Contemplative Psychotherapy Community Clinic or All Souls Counseling Centerwhere you can find support based directly on your financial need, sometimes as low as $5 per session.

If all this just seems confusing and overwhelming or you’d like a referral, I am happy to help you find the best support available for you and your child. Just shoot me an email!

My point here is: Lack of funds is no reason to forgo therapy for your child! Keep looking and keep asking until you find what you need. Help is available!
