F.A.Q


My hours are 9am-5pm, Monday through Thursday, with my last appointment at 4pm.
As an out-of-network provider, I can give you a superbill on a monthly basis for you to be reimbursed for out-of-network services. Please note, however, that providing a superbill requires me to provide you with a mental health diagnosis which will be part of your permanent medical record.

For the purpose of your confidentiality and privacy, I will not be communicating with your insurance provider directly.

In my experience, insurance sh*t's all over your healing and are party crashers to your growth. They limit the number of sessions, frequency of sessions, and will randomly decide you’re “all better” when we’ve only met for 3 sessions. No thank you!
Our first 85 minute session together is $230 and includes a thorough and holistic assessment and treatment plan

Subsequent 55 minute sessions are $200 and includes a professional audio recording of any hypnosis, mindfulness, or IFS-informed meditations during our time together

Costs for a Cause:
My rates allow me to provide premium care to others who are struggling financially and would not have access to the specialized treatment I offer. With every session, you are helping someone in North Carolina have access to effective trauma treatment

Yes!

If you are struggling financially, I offer limited sliding scale and scholarship slots. I do not want money to be a barrier to your healing. Please contact me and we can discuss your options to get you the care that you deserve.

An alternative option is having a friend, partner, or love one pay for your sessions until you are financially able to do so.
Individual sessions are 55 minutes.

I can also provide 120 minute sessions for longer EMDR and Hypnotherapy sessions to heal deeper and faster.
I will be offering walk-n-talk therapy at one of my favorite hiking spots in Asheville, NC around March 2022 (pending the COVID pandemic).

Please note, I will only be offering walk-n-talk therapy to vaccinated clients.

If you're interested, please contact me to be put on the waitlist!
I'm all about comfort, convenience, and creativity. These are the 4 main reasons my clients LOVE online therapy

  • 1. The Ultimate Time Saver
    • Gone are the days of getting fully dressed, hassling this traffic, worrying about being late, and spending 30-60 mins of driving just to get to and fro your appointment. Attend your therapy sessions by opening up your laptop, whether you're at home, office, or vacationing on the beach. Image what other nourishing activities you could be doing with an extra hour back?

  • 2. Comfort
    • For therapy to flow effectively, it's necessary for you to feel at ease during our work together. My clients love having their sessions outside, or on their favorite couch, and wearing their leggings or lounge clothes with their favorite essential oils in the background. Whether at home, on a trip, in your office, you can easily carry out your sessions productively and comfortably.

  • 3. Confidentiality
    • Goodbye awkwardness of waiting rooms or accidentally running into your ex in the parking lot! With online care, you can carry out the sessions from any location of your choosing without anyone knowing your business.  Like in person sessions, I'm legally and ethically bound to protect your confidentially, health information, and obey HIPAA. In other words, all your data and the conversation between you and me remain secure through encryption.

  • 4. It's JUST as effective as in person therapy
    • Multiple research trials comparing online versus in person therapy suggest that treatment effects are equivalent. Yes, even hypnotherapy and EMDR can be done effectively & successfully online. In fact, a study indicated that some clients feel more comfortable video chatting versus than in person.
