Dr. Joanna Lhulier

Professions: Clinical Psychologist
License Status: I'm a licensed professional.
Primary Credential: Psychologist
Billing and Insurance:

I don't currently accept insurance, but I can provide documentation if clients wish to submit to an insurance company for "out of network" benefit coverage

Fees: I am happy to offer a free 15-minute phone consultation. While I am not an "in-network provider," I do work with insurance companies to ensure proper reimbursement. This includes submitting claims and waiting for reimbursement. I also have a sliding fee scale available for those in need. I am happy to answer more specific questions about billing via email or phone.

My Approach to Helping

I am interested in learning about you. This includes what is going well in your life and what are some of the things that you would like to change. My approach is to listen carefully and help you figure out how you would like to move forward. There are times that I will ask questions, offer things to think about and encourage self reflection in a safe, open environment.

More Info About My Practice

I believe that a good match between client and therapist is essential for "good therapy." If you decide to contact me, I will suggest that we meet for a consultation meeting where we will both get a chance to learn more about one another, and you will have a better idea as to whether you feel comfortable moving forward.
