Common Questions

What are your protocols for COVID-19?

Currently I am offering telehealth/teletherapy sessions to all clients. For clients, whose situations require in-person sessions, I am following all CDC and DORA (Colorado State Regulatory Board) requirements re safety and disinfection. My room has a window that opens; and sanitizer is provided if you do have your own. I have a COVID-19 waiver for you to sign and require that all clients coming into session are fully vaccinated.

What does Contemplative Psychotherapy mean?

Contemplative Psychotherapy is broadly defined as an approach that draws from Western mindfulness-based psychotherapies and Buddhist psychological perspectives. In mainstream psychotherapy, one might compare it to Relational-based, Mindfulness-based and Attachment Theory styles. A fundamental view in this style of treatment is that mental health is intrinsic and unconditional.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, check, PayPal, Venmo, Visa and Mastercard.

Do you accept insurance?

I am currently a provider in CIGNA Behavioral Health, INC’s network. If you have another insurance, I do not process insurance claims on other networks at this time; however, a Super Bill is available to you at no extra charge. In submitting this bill you may be able to obtain reimbursement from your insurance company according to your plan. Please contact your insurance company directly to inquire about your out-of-network eligibility. All fees are ultimately your responsibility, even if your insurance company fails to reimburse you.

I am also flexible re session fees based on what your insurance company’s co-pay is. Please let’s talk about this as an option for your sessions.

Do you offer a sliding scale?

I do offer a sliding scale on an individual basis. I only have a limited number of times available for this. Please discuss your financial concerns in our first session together. Additionally, if you would like to pay in advance, please inquire about multiple session discounts for consecutive sessions.

Can I bring along my child(ren)?

In the case of individual psychotherapy, please make arrangements for your child(ren) to be taken care of while in session. These sessions are designed to afford you the opportunity to be the focus of support and care. In the case of family/group sessions, if the child(ren) is a part of the treatment group, and we have discussed their participation, a separate form must be completed by a legal guardian of the child(ren) before treatment is initiated.

Can I bring along my pet?

Sometimes clients have requested that their furry loved-ones be in session with them. Please talk with me before bringing in your pet so we can talk about the effects of having her/him in session.
