Consultations usually last 10-15 minutes and are a chance for both of us to ask questions and get a sense of whether or not you want to try therapy with me.
A question I ask folks when we meet is: what’s bringing you to therapy right now?
You can use that time to check in with how much you feel okay with sharing in that moment; there are no wrong answers.
Together we identify what strengths you have and build on them. Your humor, values, questions about your spirituality, purpose, even your RBF are all welcome into our space. It’s never about the goals or agenda I have for you. You are the expert on your life and I’m here to help you re-member that.
We often are so amazing at thinking about what’s happened and why it happened but rarely notice what that feels like in our body, or if we do it’s when it’s overwhelming. Our work together is rebuilding trust with yourself again and noticing what that feels like, taking up space, and feeling whole again – even the parts of you that you’ve grown to dislike or has experienced trauma.
All sessions start as virtual with limited availability for in person sessions. Nature therapy is around Los Angeles, usually in Santa Monica or Redondo Beach.
The energetic exchange is reflected to honor the development of my craft, support sustainability for this work, and to be accessible for folks needing sliding scale. Payment plans are available for intensive sessions.
*Sliding scale slots are currently full. If you’d like to be added to the waitlist please send an email.
No insurance plans accepted at this time. If you have an HSA or FSA, you may use that to pay for your services and an invoice can be provided for your documentation including intensive sessions.
Please note, I do not communicate directly with insurance companies on your behalf and I will not provide treatment reports or summaries to these third parties. This includes personal injury cases.
If you have a PPO plan and want to see if you can receive partial reimbursement for Out of Network (OON) services, a Superbill can be provided to you to self-advocate with your insurance. Please note insurance will likely not reimburse for intensive sessions past 1 hour.
There is no guarantee of reimbursement with your insurance. Some questions you can ask your insurance are:
Some reasons why I don’t accept insurance:
If you still want to use your insurance, I can do my best to recommend therapists on your insurance provider list.
I’m happy to collaborate with you and your current therapist on your healing journey. Part of our work together is having open communication, clear expectations of what we’re working on, and being honest on where your capacity is at present. EMDR is not a magic cure and being in the body may not be easy.

When you get emergency care or get treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from surprise billing or balance billing.
When you see a doctor or other health care provider, you may owe certain out-of-pocket costs, such as a copayment, coinsurance, and/or a deductible. You may have other costs or have to pay the entire bill if you see a provider or visit a health care facility that isn’t in your health plan’s network.
“Out-of-network” describes providers and facilities that haven’t signed a contract with your health plan. Out-of-network providers may be permitted to bill you for the difference between what your plan agreed to pay and the full amount charged for a service. This is called “balance billing.” This amount is likely more than in-network costs for the same service and might not count toward your annual out-of-pocket limit.
“Surprise billing” is an unexpected balance bill. This can happen when you can’t control who is involved in your care – like when you have an emergency or when you schedule a visit at an in-network facility but are unexpectedly treated by an out-of-network provider.
If you have an emergency medical condition and get emergency services from an out-of-network provider or facility, the most the provider or facility may bill you is your plan’s in-network cost-sharing amount (such as copayments and coinsurance). You can’t be balance billed for these emergency services. This includes services you may get after you’re in stable condition, unless you give written consent and give up your protections not to be balanced billed for these post-stabilization services.
When you get services from an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, certain providers there may be out-of-network. In these cases, the most those providers may bill you is your plan’s in-network cost-sharing amount. This applies to emergency medicine, anesthesia, pathology, radiology, laboratory, neonatology, assistant surgeon, hospitalist, or intensivist services. These providers can’t balance bill you and may not ask you to give up your protections not to be balance billed.
If you get other services at these in-network facilities, out-of-network providers can’t balance bill you unless you give written consent and give up your protections.
You’re never required to give up your protection from balance billing. You also aren’t required to get care out-of-network. You can choose a provider or facility in your plan’s network.
When balance billing isn’t allowed, you also have the following protections:
You are only responsible for paying your share of the cost (like the copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles that you would pay if the provider or facility was in-network). Your health plan will pay out-of-network providers and facilities directly.
Your health plan generally must:
Cover emergency services without requiring you to get approval for services in advance (prior authorization).
Cover emergency services by out-of-network providers.
Base what you owe the provider or facility (cost-sharing) on what it would pay an in-network provider or facility and show that amount in your explanation of benefits.
Count any amount you pay for emergency services or out-of-network services toward your deductible and out-of-pocket limit.
