- do you see clients in your office or through teletherapy?
I mostly do teletherapy, but I do offer in-person sessions at my office in Grapevine, TX on Mondays. Please click here to see my schedule.
- how does teletherapy work?
Live video session allow see each other and talk in a virtual face-to-face setting (similar to Skype). I use a HIPAA-compliant platform called Simple Practice to ensure confidentiality. The system will send you a unique link for each appointment ahead of time. At the time of our scheduled session, you will use the link to log into the Simple Practice online or on their app. I will initiate the virtual session and we’ll get started—it’s easy and 100% secure.
- what is the difference between eating disorder therapy and coaching—which is right for me?
Eating disorders are complex and medically dangerous mental illness, and as such, coaching is meant to supplement treatment you’re already getting from a therapist and/or dietitian, not take the place of it. Also, counseling is the more appropriate option for anyone who is dealing with serious mental health issues like severe depression/anxiety, suicidal thoughts, or unresolved trauma.

- how long will I need counseling or coaching?
This varies depending on the issues you are struggling with and your goals. It also depends on how much work you are willing to put into the process in between sessions.
The cost of each session is $125, but I do reserve some sliding scale spots for clients in financial need, so please contact me about that if needed. Also, I do not accept insurance, but can provide a superbill that you can submit to insurance for out of network reimbursement if they offer that (I recommend double-checking with your insurance company about specific benefits and processes).
The cost of each session is $65 and coaching is typically not reimbursed by insurance.
