Here are some of my frequently asked questions regarding services, logistics, what therapy may look like, payment, etc. This page is a constant work-in-progress as I will be updating when information and questions change. Feel free to email me any suggestions or to let me know if you have any questions!
Do you take insurance? What are your fees?
I am currently only accepting Medicaid and private pay. This means that if you do not utilize Medicaid, I am considered an out-of-network provider. Below are my fees for private pay clients. I do accept sliding scale on a limited basis, however this requires a conversation prior to your first appointment. All 15 minute phone consultations are free.
$125 for all intakes
$100 for individual 50-minute session
$125 for 60-minute couples or family session
What are your hours of availability?
I am available Monday--Friday, and have a flexible schedule that is ever--changing based on the needs of my clients. My earliest available session time is 8 a.m. I have evening sessions available on a limited basis with my last offered session time being 7 p.m. While I try to maintain a healthy work--life balance, I do often respond to text messages and emails outside of the regular work day. Crisis and weekend availability is on an individual basis. If it is an emergency, however, I ask that you call 911.
What happens if I need to cancel? What happens if you (the therapist) cancels?
I totally understand that things happen----you get sick, the kids get sick, the car is in the shop, the roads are icy, etc. That's life, and sometimes life happens regardless of our prior commitments! I do have a policy that requires at least a 24 hour notice on any cancellations/rescheduling. All sessions cancelled or rescheduled after that 24 hour mark can be charged for the full fee amount. This is necessary because a time commitment is made to you and is held exclusively for you.
I do my best to minimize any rescheduling on my part, but life happens for me as well! In the event that I need to reschedule within that 24 hour period, I will do my best to get you in as soon as possible or I can offer a telehealth alternative.
Location? Parking? Building navigation?
I am honored to be a part of Cherry Street Collective. We're a group of independent therapists and mental health professionals working and collaborating to meet the individual therapeutic needs of our clients. Our offices are located in downtown Olathe at 110 S Cherry St. I am in suite 202. Free street parking is available outside our building. There is a parking garage about a block away as well. When you enter into the building, you'll take the elevator up to the 2nd floor, and enter into the waiting room directly in front of you. You'll see "Cherry Street Collective" on the door. Make yourself comfortable, and I'll come get you at the time of your appointment!
