We offer a free initial consultation to see if we’re a good fit for therapy. This is a brief video call that lasts about 10 minutes. We ask you to tell us a little about what’s bringing you or your family to therapy, and then we’ll discuss what we can offer and what the next steps to begin therapy are.

Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
We recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
We are not able to accept state-funded insurance at this time. We have limited session slots that are subsidized by the Sankofa Healing Fund. Please inquire about eligibility/availability information.
Therapy Fund/Financial Assistance
We believe that everyone should have access to quality mental health care. Learn more about some of the foundations that we partner with to provide FREE and low-cost therapy.
We accept all major credit cards and HSA (healthcare savings account) as forms of payment. We accept payment directly on our telehealth portal site.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session. When you cancel a session, we request that you reschedule it within a 2-week period. This enables you to make consistent progress in therapy.
Good Faith Estimate for Out-of-Network Care
Under the No Surprises Act (H.R. 133 – which will go into effect on January 1, 2022), health care providers need to give clients or patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost Under the law, healthcare providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate at least 1 business day before your next psychotherapy appointment or other services. I will deliver your Good Faith Estimate electronically using my Client Portal. You can also ask me, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate or the dispute process, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 368-1019.
