Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.


Session Length/Insurance/Cost:

Seventy-five minute sessions are available and are preferred by some as they allow plenty of time for integration. The cost for a 75-minute session for an individual is $150. A 60 minute session is $125. For couples, the cost is $165 for a 75 minute session and $140 for a 60 minute session.

I will be cancelling my in-network provider status with Blue Cross/Blue Shield as of July 25, 2018 due to reimbursement rates that remain stagnant regardless of a provider's years of experience and training. After that date and for all other insurance providers, I am an out-of-network provider. I can provide you with the receipt needed to file for out-of-network reimbursement. Please contact your insurance provider for information about your specific coverage.



My office is located in east Asheville about 1.5 miles from the VA hospital.
