- Effective, convenient, & confidential
- Evidence-based, solutions-oriented
- Connect with a licensed, expert therapist from the comfort of your home
How Does it Work?
Online counseling and coaching works best for professionals & students who are motivated to “organize, process, and clarify” issues related to anxiety, stress, compassion-fatigue, and adjustment issues related to career and personal development.
Having an unconditionally supportive therapist on your team is literally life-changing. You’ll be able to reduce overwhelm and indecisiveness by developing a realistic plan of action that will sustainably work for you.
With a therapist on your “speed-dial”, you’ll be able to check in anytime you like – whether it’s once a week, once a month, or once every few months. You’ll love that the goal is consistent support without anxiety-provoking commitments or contracts.
We’ll connect virtually from the comfort of your home. All you need is a private, quiet space; headphones, your laptop, and a strong wi-fi connection. I use HIPAA-compliant teletherapy platforms. Additionally, I use a HIPAA-compliant Electronic Health Records System; which means that all personal information is protected and confidential. .
Do you accept Insurance for Telehealth?
Many people have some insurance benefits. And, many health insurance plans cover online therapy. However, each plan is different. We can discuss whether private pay, insurance, or out-of-network benefits work best for you during our phone/video consultation. If you use insurance, there is usually a $15-40 copayment; and possibly a deductible.
I accept the following insurances:
- BLUE CROSS/BLUE SHIELD
- HARVARD PILGRIM
Please note: I will need to prove that counseling sessions are a “medical necessity” and provide a diagnosis in order to bill your insurance. I cannot overstate or create a diagnosis for the purpose of ensuring reimbursement. Also, I assess everyone for appropriateness during our initial consultation and provide referrals for higher-level of care when applicable.
Private Pay Fees
In-Office: $120 per hour
Online: $106 per hour
Some clients want more flexibility and choose to be “private-pay”. I offer career, education, and dating/relationship counseling and coaching for clients without mental health issues who simply seek career, relationships, and personal growth mentoring.

Online counseling is not recommended for severe mental illnesses that require a high-level of medication management such as: schizophrenia, schizo-affective, paranoid personality disorders, impulse-control disorders, recurrent/severe bi-polar disorder, recurrent/severe mood disorders, eating disorders, suicidal/homicidal thinking, and substance abuse addiction (I’ll recommend partial outpatient services with a medical provider due to the high level of risk in withdrawal). Or other environmental issues such as: current domestic violence or recent sexual assault (I’ll recommend your local DV agency due to their excellent comprehensive services). I provide referrals for these higher-level of care issues to specialists and local agencies.
Evidence-based therapeutic modalities such as ACT, CBT, CPT, DBT, MSBR, reality-therapy, interpersonal, family systems, and other therapy interventions work seamlessly online. Interventions range from learning expert interpersonal skills; to developing leadership skills.
