Getting Started

If you would like to learn more about this practice directly or schedule a first appointment, please call or email and let me know the best time to reach you.

First appointment:

I see patients in person and virtually through an encrypted HIPAA-compliant video platform. Regardless of whether we meet remotely or in person, your first appointment would be at my office, located in Chapel Hill. I find that meeting in person supports us both in determining whether or not I can be helpful to you. In therapy speak, this element of psychotherapy is called "therapeutic fit" and is critically important for effective treatment. I encourage you to use our initial appointment to get a sense of whether or not you feel comfortable with me and whether you feel understood and listened to. You are free to express any questions or concerns you have about starting therapy in this session. At the end of this initial appointment, we will discuss scheduling a weekly time to meet if it suits us both. 

Session Length:

Individual psychotherapy sessions are 50 minutes.

 

Couples therapy appointments are 55 minutes.

EMDR sessions and Couples therapy can be scheduled for 90 minutes at your request or when clinically useful. These appointment times are limited based on my availability and are charged at an adjusted rate.

Payment:

Payment is collected the day of your appointment, unless otherwise arranged. I accept all major credit cards, debit cards, and health savings account (HSA) cards. Payments can be made electronically through my Client Portal and by cash or check.
