I offer counseling services via Telehealth only. Due to state licensure requirements, clients must be located within the state of Iowa for appointment.
I see individuals 18 and over who are looking for growth and change. I work with people who are navigating issues like grief, working with change, anxiety, depression, and personal growth.
I utilize a secure, HIPAA compliant platform for all appointments. All you need is a secure internet connection, a private location, and to be in the state of Iowa for your appointment. You are provided with a help guide with your intake paperwork which is sent via secure online portal when your initial appointment is scheduled.
I prefer to meet you where you are and allow you to steer the direction and course of your treatment. I utilize aspects of many modalities of therapy such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), EMDR, Person Centered, and Existential Therapy. My hope is that I can be a guide in you achieving your most meaningful life, even with the pain of being human.
I accept Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield or Private Pay. I am able to bill some out of network insurance plans as a courtesy should you choose to utilize out of network benefits. Please inquire for more information.
I am not a provider for Medicare as Medicare does not provide coverage for Licensed Mental Health Counselors. Private pay can be accepted for those with Medicare with a signed waiver.
Making the commitment to therapy means making a commitment and an investment in yourself. My Private Pay fee is $200 for 55 minute session, sliding scale is offered. Talk with your employer and insurance provider to learn more about your individual coverage and cost options.
Therapy is also a time investment in YOU! Generally, we will start out meeting on a weekly basis in order to get to know each other and as you begin to see improvements, we begin to space sessions out as appropriate.
I have a 'zero balance' policy so payments are processed at time of service/missed appointments and once insurance has processed your visit and determined what you owe.
Counseling is an undertaking which can provoke anxiety in some. Reserving your time slot with a credit card ensures that there is a commitment to the therapeutic process and are ready to make the commitment to change. This allows me to have the freedom to spend more time offering care to YOU!
I value your time and strive to ensure that clients are able to be seen in a timely matter.
I request 48 hours cancellation notice to ensure that I can contact individuals who are on my cancellation list with adequate time. There is a $50 late cancel fee. I understand that illness and emergencies can arise. I allow for two waivers per year for such circumstances. Missed appointments are charged the full fee of $200.
