Common Questions

  1. Where are you located? All in-person counseling sessions are held at the Flower Mound Counseling clinic, 1100 Parker Square, Suite 245, Flower Mound, TX, 75028. 

  2. How do I schedule an appointment? You can call, email, or visit the Contact page to schedule your own appointment for a free 15-minute consultation. When you leave a message, make sure to let me know a good time to call you back. 

  3. What ages do you work with? I work with ages 11 and up.

  4. What are your areas of specialty/expertise? Trauma, grief, anxiety and depression, life transitions, and women's issues.

  5. Do you offer virtual/online counseling? Yes, I offer online appointments to anyone residing in Texas.

  6. What are your hours?  I offer flexible appointments during the week, including morning, evening, and Saturdays. 

  7. How long is a counseling session? Sessions are 50 minutes long.

  8. How much does a counseling session cost? The standard fee for each session is $125 for individuals and $150 for couples. You are responsible for paying at the time of your session unless prior arrangements have been made. Payment can be made by credit card or cash. I accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club, along with HSA and FSA.

  9. Do you accept insurance? No, I do not accept insurance or Medicare/Medicaid.

  10. Do you reimburse for insurance? I am an Out-of-Network Provider, and I provide superbills for my clients. A superbill is a detailed invoice that you can submit to your insurance provider for potential reimbursement. This means that even though I do not directly accept insurance, you may still be able to receive a portion of your expenses covered by your insurance plan. I advise you to contact your insurance company and find out how they reimburse for Out-of-Network claims. Look for the number on the back of your insurance card or visit their website for Mental Health or Behavioral Health Benefits.

  11. What are some advantages of working with a cash-pay therapist (why don't you take insurance)?

  • Focus on Quality Care: I believe cash-pay therapy helps prioritize your well-being above all else. This ensures that your therapy is tailored specifically to your needs, without the constraints imposed by insurance regulations (such as forced diagnoses and treatment).

  • Treatment Flexibility: Cash-pay therapy lets me utilize creative techniques and approaches that may not be covered by insurance. This flexibility enables me to design a treatment plan that suits your unique situation and goals.

  • Reduced Administrative Hassles: Not involving insurance companies can streamline administrative tasks, enabling me to focus more on your therapy sessions. This also means no worries about pre-approvals, claim submissions, or session limitations.

  • Faster Access to Care: Working with a cash-pay therapist often means shorter wait times for appointments, as I am not bound by insurance provider availability or approval processes.

12. You were my art teacher/I used to work with you, can you still be my therapist? I was an elementary art teacher at Lewisville ISD for many years, and I am bound to meet people I taught or worked with. Ethically, it is fine for me to be your therapist because we have a professional relationship. Therapists cannot work with friends or family. What matters is that you are okay with it. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to talk with me about them.
