Sessions will generally last 50 to 60 minutes. Families, groups, and couples often benefit from 90 minute sessions.Because the focus of therapy is on life transition most treatment is generally brief and lasts no longer than four months at a time. However, it is difficult to predict how many sessions you may want at the onset of therapy; the number of sessions and the frequency will depend on you, the nature of your goals and the weight of your concerns.
Payment is expected at the time of each session. You may pay by cash, check or charge via stripe (Visa, Discovery, Master Card). Clients may set up a preferred payment method through their client portal and their card of choice will be run after the session has completed.
I do not currently accept insurance. Keep in mind that most insurance companies limit sessions, session times, and require a mental health diagnosis in order to reimburse expenses. I would be happy to provide you with any information necessary for you to independently file out-of-network.
24-hour notice is required to cancel or change an appointment. Otherwise you will be charged for the reserved time according to our agreed upon fee. In cases when you arrive late for a session, your session will end at the scheduled time and you will be charged for the full session.
I make every effort to return calls and reply to emails and texts within two business days. I do not reply to emails, phone calls, or texts on the weekends or holidays.

You may text me or leave a voice message for me at (512) 436-3843.

Information through electronic mail, voicemail, and text is not a completely secure and confidential means of communication. Therefore, I recommend that you keep the content of your written messages limited. For this reason, I use email and text for scheduling purposes only. I ask that you limit email and/or text communications with me to purposes of scheduling or other logistical concerns.
As a LMFT-A I work weekly with a supervisor to review my cases and develop my skills. My supervisor is Billy Lee Myers Jr., LMFTS. In the course of our work together I do share client information with him, which he keeps confidential and private as he would the information of his own therapy clients.
