Q. How much does counseling cost?
A. Individual sessions cost $135 per 45-50 minutes. Group and workshop fees depend on the particular gathering. I do offer a sliding scale through Open Path - please check there for sliding scale fees.
Q. Do you take insurance?
A. I do not currently take insurance. However, I can provide you with a superbill to provide to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement. They may or may not choose to reimburse you. I recommend speaking with them before choosing this option.
Q. Does open view offer sliding scale?
A. Yes! Please see the fee question above for details.
Q. Where is your office?
A. The Open View office is located near City Park in the heart of Denver. Our street address is 1839 York Street, Suite 2. With our close proximity to City Park, we will often go to the park during sessions and groups to incorporate nature-based activities.
Q. What are your practice specialties?
A. Practice specialties include anxiety, depression, identity issues, women’s issues, and life transitions. I work with primarily with:
young adults struggling with anxiety and/or depression
young adults facing insecurity (social, emotional, financial, career, etc)
young adults struggling with relationships, friendships, or family
anyone who finds themselves adjusting to a transition, whether it be a move, new job, break-up, or anything that’s different
young professionals questioning the purpose or meaning of their job, or seeking to find a new career path
young adults facing social anxiety, comparison, judgment, or questioning their identity
If Open View may not be a good fit for you, I can do my best to help you find a therapist or counselor who will be a good match.
Q. How frequently do people come in for sessions? How long does therapy usually last?
A. Clients typically come in for counseling consultation once a week. Occasionally, we decide that every other week sessions are more appropriate, based on client need.
We usually meet 4-6 times before lessening the frequency of sessions to once a month. From there, when it feels like all original goals have been addressed and it doesn’t feel like we have a lot more to work on at the moment, we will say goodbye with the knowledge that you’re welcome to return should you ever need to.
Q. What type of therapy / counseling do you practice?
A. My main approach to counseling and therapy is narrative therapy, which looks at the person within the context of their social, political, socio-economic, and overall situation/environment/lifestyle. We’ll explore beliefs and judgments about the world and self, and find which stories support you, helping you thrive, and which welcome negativity into your life.
