I'm an in-network provider for many major insurance carriers, and I'm happy to work with your insurance to cover the cost of treatment. However, it's important to note that in order for services to be considered medically necessary, a mental health diagnosis must be submitted to your insurance provider. This could potentially impact your ability to obtain life or health insurance in the future or limit your options for occupations that require a high-level security clearance. Additionally, some treatment modalities may not be covered by insurance. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about using medical insurance for counseling. My goal is to provide you with the support and resources you need to thrive.
I'm dedicated to providing an affirming environment where individuals of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and relationship types feel safe and supported. I'm deeply committed to educating myself about the unique needs and experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community. I have extensive experience working with transgender and gender-diverse individuals at various stages of their identity development and transition. My approach adheres to the WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health) standards of care, and I'm happy to collaborate with your medical team to coordinate care for your desired authentic expression. If you're seeking gender-affirming surgery, I can provide the necessary letters and support to help you achieve your goals.
Experiencing traumatic events or distressing situations can cause long-lasting and painful symptoms that affect your overall well-being. Flashbacks, nightmares, unexplainable fear, sadness, anger, and negative beliefs about yourself, others, and the world are all common symptoms of trauma. It can leave you feeling disconnected, depressed, and like nothing feels safe. Trauma can make it difficult to experience positive emotions or feel loving toward others. Sometimes, these symptoms can manifest suddenly, while other times they may take years to surface. The good news is that recovery from trauma is possible. As a trauma-informed therapist, I use a variety of strengths-based therapies, such as Internal Family Systems (IFS), protective and transpersonal techniques, and clinical hypnotherapy, to help you heal from trauma and regain a sense of safety and well-being.

Spiritual Counseling & Coaching
If you've experienced negative spiritual experiences and/or religious trauma or you're looking for a deeper sense of meaning and purpose, I offer a space to show up as your whole, authentic Self, and to free yourself of painful programming. Spiritual techniques may include mindfulness and guided meditation, the creation of personalized and meaningful rituals, tarot or oracle cards to gain insight into current experiences, ancestor and generational healing, working with inner Guides and Allies, and accessing your Akashic record for karmic healing. Whatever your needs, I will work with you to develop a customized approach to help you connect with your inner spirituality and find the healing and growth you seek.
GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical 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 bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
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, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
