I prefer to not work with insurance companies because I strive to provide the most effective and comprehensive client care possible. I have found that the session limits, confidentiality issues, and pathology “labels” associated with taking insurance can pose more of a hindrance to good client care than it does a benefit. While session frequency and the number of sessions should be a collaborative decision between the client and the therapist, insurance companies frequently impose a session limit or require a specific treatment. This can undercut the effectiveness of the overall therapy process as well as remove the freedom of choice and control a client has over his or her mental health care.

In addition, insurance companies require a diagnosis code, and many times, a treatment plan for each client. This can result in what feels like an invasion of privacy as well as a feeling of being “labeled” or “pathologized.” Because my goal is to work in a holistic and non-stigmatizing manner, the requirements of insurance can pose a conflict of interest.​

However, I believe no one should be turned away from counseling due to financial limitations and should be able to utilize the benefits available to them, therefore I am a in-network provider for a limited number of insurance companies. I also offer a sliding scale option for those who are unable to pay my rate. You may contact me to see if any sliding scale appointments are available.  I’m an in-network provider for the following insurance companies:

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas

Tricare (Standard/Prime)



I accept cash, check, Visa, American Express, Discover, and MasterCard. A credit card authorization form will be included in your Informed Consent and Counseling Contract packet you are given when you schedule your first appointment. Please note that payment is due at the beginning of each session if you do not have a credit card on file.

Cancellation Policy

If you miss your scheduled session, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the scheduled session. Please be aware that if you choose to use insurance benefits for your sessions, you will still be charged the full amount if you fail to cancel with 24 hours notification.
