Appointment Considerations


I am introducing a new concept in my practice.  I am trying to meet the needs of those who would like to work with me while striking a balance of creating the abundance I am seeking, while fairly allocating my resources to people in need.  


If you wish to use your insurance and are located in the states of Vermont or Colorado, you can consider seeing me through the Teladoc online clinic platform.  I typically work there on Mondays as a private contractor.   That is a separate clinic from my private practice, and they do not allow for the prescription of controlled substances, and generally it is only medication management without psychotherapy.  If you are a Teladoc client, you would communicate with me through the Teladoc app and staff (there will be no direct email, text, or phone communications between us.)  To sign up for a Teladoc appointment please navigate to and follow their sign up procedures. 


As of February 3rd, 2023, I am only accepting a limited number of new clients into my private practice and only after a telephone consultation.


If you wish to become a private client with more direct access and treatment options and find that my fees are not affordable, please free to contact me to discuss your ability to pay and a potential sliding scale adjustment based on income and/or life situation. Please be advised, I am can only accommodate a certain numbers of folks with my sliding scale fee system and although it is generally considered an honor system, you may be asked to present proof of income to establish the sliding scale fee.
