SERVICES OFFERED

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. 

TELEHEALTH 

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. 

MY APPROACH

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. 

INSURANCES ACCEPTED

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.

INVESTMENT

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. 

BILLING

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! 

CANCELLATION POLICY

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.
