Billing and Insurance

I am an in-network provider for:

  • CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Maryland Medical Assistance (Medicaid)

Fees: While cost is important, the ability of the Therapist to connect with you, understand you, and help you is far more important.

Know your insurance coverage. While I am an In-Network Provider with a few health insurance plans, I am Out-of-Network for most. Out-of-Network does Not mean not covered.

You do not have to limit your choices. I honor your financial constraints and take them into consideration when we discuss fee.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

While I am a strong Christian, I do not push my Faith on anyone. I do not even talk about Faith, God, or Spirituality unless you want to. You are in charge, not me.

My Christian Faith creates, strengthens, and deepens the empathy, compassion, non-judgement, and intuition I bring into each therapy session. I walk my Faith as best I know how, and I'm constantly learning how to do it better. When I make mistakes, I do my very best to acknowledge them, apologize, make amends, and talk it through with you.

While my Faith is my strongest ethical guide, I am held to and abide by many official Ethical Standards. These include the Code of the State of Maryland, the National Board of Certified Counselors, and the American Counseling Association. It matters to me to fully abide by these Ethical Standards.

The bottom line and most important piece . . . Do No Harm.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

I am so very sorry you had a bad experience with a therapist. Please do not let that get in the way of your healing and your creating the life you want. You may not realize that every therapist is different. We bring our own personalities, strengths, and weaknesses with us. I say that to encourage you to not give up.

For me, your comfort is a priority. You'll find my presence is calm and non-judging. My passion for people who are hurting, my maturity, and my approach of empathy, compassion, and intuitive understanding blend together to create a warm, safe, therapeutic atmosphere and relationship.

My clients are from all cultures, walks of life, and faith systems.
