Initial Paperwork

You can download the intake paperwork for the Norfolk office after you scheduled your appointment here  This link is only for appointments in Norfolk. If you need an appointment in Nags Head, please email me and mention the location of the appointment. 


Please email to to inquire about an appointment  if you have a hard time using the scheduling link. 

Payments and Insurance 

Co-pays/deductibles  are billed at the end of each session. I accept cash, checks and Paypal. 

I take most insurances for individual  counseling in Virginia. Couple therapy is not covered by insurance. Please call or email me for pricing. 

I take certain insurances for Family Therapy. Please  email for more information at

I am a Preferred Provider for the following insurance plans in Virginia: 

  • Humana/Tricare Standard
  • Humana/Tricare Prime
  • Anthem Healthkeepers
  • Anthem Healthkeepers Plus
  • Anthem Blue Cross 
  • Aetna 
  • Optima
  • Optum
  • Cigna
  • United Health Care
  • Medicare
  • Medicaid ( Optima, Anthem )
  • EAP

In North Carolina I am credentialed with limited insurance companies such as:

  • Optima
  • Optum
  • Medicare
  • Value Options
  • Humana/Tricare
  • Aetna
  • Cigna

 For the insurance providers that I am not credentialed with,  I will give you a detailed receipt you can use to file a claim.


If you choose to use your insurance, please call your insurance company to find out the following information:  

  • if you need an authorization for treatment (if so, they will give you an authorization number to bring with you);
  • what your deductible or copay  amount is;

If you do not obtain an authorization and one is required, you will be responsible for the entire balance.

If your health insurance carrier allows you to choose an out-of-network provider, I will gladly provide you with a monthly statement so that you can seek reimbursement from your insurance provider. 

In the beginning, it is generally most helpful to have weekly sessions. Towards the end of therapy, it is possible to meet less frequently. 


Missed Appointments and Cancellation

Missed appointments, or appointments cancelled less than 48 hours in advance, will be charged $50 for the clinical hour.  When you schedule an appointment, that clinical hour is reserved for you. Therefore, I am unable to provide service to other clients during that time.

If you arrive are late, we will meet for the remainder of the scheduled session. If you are more than 15 minutes late, and I have not heard from you, I will assume you are not coming and I may then be unavailable for the session.
