Clinical supervision: Please contact me to discuss. Available for individual and group supervision for social workers and dance/movement therapists pursuing licensure/certification. I also offer yoga teachers, massage therapists and other mind-body workers clinical support in their work with clients with psychological trauma.
Reduced fees: Instead of offering a sliding scale, I reserve a handful of openings at a rate of $108/hour for clients unable to afford my services. This rate will be honored for 90 days from the date of the first session in order to allow as many people as possible to take advantage of this offer. Please contact me for details on how to qualify.
The Self-Pay Advantage
I do not take insurance. Some of the services I provide are not considered industry standard mental health treatment and therefore are not covered by insurance. Other considerations include:
- Privacy. Insurance companies require disclosure of highly personal information, the confidentiality and privacy of which cannot be guaranteed.
- Clinical independence. Managed care can be more involved in determining the details of therapy than some people like. If you want the flexibility to choose the length of your sessions and how often we meet, self-pay is the way to go.
- Wellness perspective. Many people don’t want a mental health diagnosis in their permanent medical record, or are seeking therapy for non-medical reasons, such personal growth.
