    FAQs

    Where Are You Located?

    My practice is offering Telehealth-only services. This allows more freedom and flexibility, and makes therapy more accessible and comfortable for everyone. Through this service, I am also able to reach women throughout North Carolina, too!

    Do you have evening/weekend appointments available?

    To hold boundaries for myself and my family, I do not currently have availability after 5pm, and do not offer weekend appointments. I understand that this may present some scheduling difficulties for you, especially if you work a traditional 9-5pm job. Most people I work with are able to find times that do work for them (and Telehealth makes that even easier), by rearranging work or other commitments to prioritize themselves. However, if you absolutely need evening or weekend appointments, I am happy to refer you to a therapist that offers that availability.

    I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?

    People who go to therapy are badasses. Having a therapist doesn’t make you “weak,” it makes you powerful. It means you want to level up your life, and rock it to the best of your ability. Is it hard? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. Don’t you want to learn to master your life and love yourself?

    What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?

    It is my hope that as we work together, you will start to feel at ease sharing your thoughts and feelings with me, similar to how you might feel sharing things with a friend. BUT, since I am an impartial observer, everything you say to me will remain private, confidential, and completely judgment-free. And because I am an outside observer of your life, I am able to see different perspectives and offer insights that your best friend or aunt may not.

    How long does therapy last?

    As long as you want it to! We are all works in progress, so as long as you have something you want to improve in your life, we can continue to work together. Or, if you want to come to me with a short-term issue, that is fine too. Therapy is flexible and designed to meet your needs. You are in charge.

    Do you take insurance?

    I take Blue Cross Blue Shield, UnitedHealthCare, and Tricare. If you wish to use a different insurance, I am happy to provide invoices and Superbills for you to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. The full fee will be due at time of service.

    Many people do not realize this, but working with insurance companies is often very limiting. It takes away meaningful time that we could spend working with our clients, engaging in continuing education opportunities, etc. Insurances also typically require that we disclose personal information about our clients, including mental health diagnoses.
