What You Can Expect

Counseling

I offer a combination of counseling services to best fit what you need. Some examples of how we can work together include:

  • Setting goals for yourself 

  • Care planning support

  • Grief and bereavement support

  • Individual weekly therapy sessions

  • Ever-other-week therapy sessions

  • Monthly check-in sessions

  • Joint sessions with you and another person (family member, support person, potentially your person)

Consultation 

If you are just getting started on your caregiving journey or have been in a caregiver role for some time, I offer consultation support to assist with: 

  • Goal setting for your person

  • Care planning

  • Circumstantial/situational support

  • Changes in your person's:

    • Physical functioning and health status

    • Cognition and/or memory

    • Living situation

    • Increased financial needs

Bereavement Support

Anchor 1

My approach to working with clients includes the following: 

Holistic: I support clients in seeking additional help from other mental health professionals, such as psychiatrists or psychiatric nurse practitioners, as well as physical and spiritual interventions.

Strengths-based: We work collaboratively to situate your current challenges within the context of your talents, visions, hopes, capacities, and resilience. 

Trauma-focused: This means that I am mindful of past trauma, reactivation of trauma, and current stressors that could lead to future trauma as you face increasing challenges associated with being in relationship with your person*.  

Somatic: In order to fully support caregivers of older adults, I focus on the physical sensations in the body to help identify triggers and work to curate individualized techniques that work to help restore a sense of equilibrium, self-compassion, and focus so that you can continue to care for your person, but also continue to fully engage in and enjoy your life outside of your caregiving role. 

*Your person refers to the older adult for whom you are providing care. In my practice, I avoid using the phrase "loved one," as this may feel inauthentic to some clients, especially if the quality of the relationship has been poor, or if the caregiver ever experienced trauma or abuse by the older adult. 

Regardless of how recently you experienced the death of someone, I provide grief and bereavement support based on your specific needs, which could include:

  • Integrating grief into your daily life

  • Learning how to tend to your pain while maintaining your relationships and obligations 

  • Education around old and new ways of understanding and experiencing grief

  • Creating ways to continue bonds with the deceased

  • ​Supporting you in retaining parts of yourself that have meaning and purpose; letting go of parts that no longer serve you; and discovering new parts that you may never have been aware of or thought possible 

  • I am currently accepting private-pay clients only. I can provide documentation for you should you seek to submit a claim to your insurance for reimbursement for an out-of-network benefit (other than Medicare; see below for more information). 

  • ​All services are provided either by phone or telemental health using a HIPPA protected platform. ​I am licensed to practice in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. 

  • I offer all prospective clients a free 15 minute consultation to determine if we are a good fit for one another. 

  • 60-minute session (individual or joint session up to 2 people): $180

  • 60-minute telehealth session of 3 or more people: $180 +$100 per additional person over 2 people 

  • Phone Calls

    • Less than 15 minutes: No charge

    • 15 minutes to 30 minutes: $80

    • Over 30 minutes: $160

Additional Information

Medicare Opt-Out Provider: I am a provider who has opted out of Medicare reimbursement. If you have an insurance other than Medicare, I can provide you with a superbill should you seek to request reimbursement from your insurance provider; however, this does not apply to clients with Medicare as their primary insurance. 

Good Faith Estimate & No Surprises Act: This Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of services that are reasonably expected for the expected services to address your mental health care needs. If you are billed for $400 more by me than this Good Faith Estimate (GFE), you have the right to dispute the bill. As a clinician, I follow the Good Faith Estimate law (more can be found here) and will ensure that you fully understand that you will not be charged any more than the cost for services rendered.
