Getting Started

& Paperwork

Please reach out to me to schedule your first appointment. I am routinely available Monday - Friday from 9 AM - 2:30 PM for sessions.

After we have set a time, I will send you a link to my online portal for you to complete paperwork before we meet. This is a required step, so that I can verify your identity and review your documents before your session.



In-person and online

Visit me for in-person appointments at 510 Lincolnway East in Mishawaka. This historic office space sits on the river just east of downtown Mishawaka. Private parking is located behind the building, or on the street. Please use the purple front door.



Included with my professional service to you, I will bill your insurance company for counseling. I currently accept the following insurance: 

  • Aetna

  • Anthem BCBS

  • Michiana Behavioral Health Network 

  • New Avenues EAP 

  • Optum Behavioral Health

  • United Healthcare 

  • Meritain using the Aetna network tier

  • UMR

The only EAP I accept at this time is the New Avenues EAP. 

For clients who would rather pay directly for services without insurance, my discounted fee is $110 for hour sessions (aprox. 55 minutes). I accept cash or credit card. Payment is due at the time of service. 

Appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance or a $90 fee will apply.​ Unfortunately, without advanced notice I cannot fill your appointment so you will be responsible for that time. (Of course, if we both agree that circumstances were unavoidable, I may waive that fee.)

If you are experiencing financial hardship, ask about limited openings for a reduced fee.

Q: Do you take Medicaid or Medicare?

A: Unfortunately, no, I am not in-network with any Medicaid or Medicare plans.

Q: Is your office handicapped accessible?

A: Because the office is a historic structure, sadly it is not accessible. There are 5 steps plus the threshold required to enter. The restroom is not handicapped accessible. For clients who need therapy in a different setting, I suggest telehealth therapy with periodic meetings in another, private location such as your church or library conference room. Accommodating your physical needs is important to me. 

Q: How do I know if I can use my insurance?

A: Before we meet, you will need to call the number on the back of your insurance card and verify if I am a provider you can see. Also ask what your co-pay or deductible may be for mental health care and if you need pre-authorization to see me. 

Q: What payment will I owe?

A: If we have already discussed and verified your insurance, you may only owe me your co-pay at each session (payable by cash or credit card). If you do not have your insurance information available, you will owe the full fee for services. Some clients choose not to file with their insurance carrier and I provide them a discounted rate for this. 

Q: What should I do when I arrive?

A: You can park on the street or behind the building at 510 LWE. My suite is accessed through the front, purple door. Upon entering you will be in a small foyer where you can sit and wait a few moments until your appointment time. This waiting area is small and intended for just one or two people. 

Q: What if I still have questions?

The quickest way to get in touch with me is text, so feel free to text me if you have other questions at 574-400-7250.
