FAQsFrequently Asked Questions
What ages do you serve?
I cannot see clients currently, but please check back in 2026. I generally serve ages 16 and older. Age 16 is the age of medical independence in Tennessee. I make exceptions on occassion for younger clients on a case-by-case basis
What insurance do you accept?
What if my insurance isn't in network, or I don't have insurance?
Do you see clients in person or just virtually?
I see clients across Tennessee virtually and in person at DMA-Fairview, 2340 Fairview Blvd. Suite 100, Fairview, Tennessee.
How does virtual therapy work?
My employer uses the HIPPA-compliant, secure platform SimplePractice. Virtual clients receive a link to their appointments.
Many clients who are reluctant to try virtual therapy discover they enjoy the convenience of seeing me from their work desk, car, or even comfy sofa with a blanket!
Up to two people can join a virtual session on SimplePractice, making it an option for sessions with individuals, two family members, or couples.
How long does therapy last?
Therapy is a valuable investment, as its positive effects can endure throughout one’s lifetime and extend to enrich the well-being of future generations.
Individual therapy: Duration varies tremendously, but generally speaking, most clients start feeling better within a month and find major improvement by 12-16 weeks of weekly therapy.
After that, many clients reduce the frequency of their visits from weekly to bi-weekly, then monthly, and then as-needed.
The length of therapy often depends on the nature of the issue clients present with. Some get what they need from a single session, whereas I assist others with “rewiring” their brains to overcome longstanding challenges.
Couples therapy: Again, duration varies a great deal, but after the initial Gottman Method assessment and planning sessions (about 5 sessions), most couples can expect at least 12 sessions. Many couples eventually reduce the frequency of their visits from weekly to bi-weekly, then monthly, and then as-needed.
Family therapy: Family therapy varies the most, depending on the specific needs of each family.
