What to Expect



How do I get started? It is my goal is to create a collaborative connection with clients so they feel safe and supported to gain a deeper awareness of strengths & experiences, but also to initiate some action or change.

The 1st session is used to confirm that we are a good fit and you feel comfortable with the process.

Career counseling & coaching is a fee-for-service. This is not covered by insurance. Please inquire about fees.

Insurance for Psychotherapy
In-network with BlueCross BlueShield IL PPO & United Healthcare.

Insurance covers psychotherapy visits, and it is wellness oriented. Billing insurance requires a diagnosis on the claim.  If you have insurance other than BCBS or United, you can use  your out of network benefits. Most clients get reimbursed 50-80% of the counseling fee.

Online Counseling via a video platform is also available – request more information.
