How Does Therapy Work?

All of our therapy sessions take place online. All we require is that you find a private space to talk with your clinician where you are free from distractions and interruptions. Ideally, you want to feel safe sharing whatever is on your mind and in your heart that’s brought you here.

We use a HIPPA compliant video software so your therapy sessions are private and protected. We want you to have good communication with your therapists so we encourage you to find a place you’re comfortable being open to sharing your experience and your feelings.

If you’re seeking couples counseling, we encourage you to be in the same space as your partner. And, we understand that can’t always happen so we can accommodate those challenges when they arise.


Do You Accept Health Insurance?


Our therapy practice is considered “out of network” and we are not currently paneled with any insurance providers. That said, many of our clients receive reimbursement from their insurance networks by submitting superbills, or special invoices, that many insurance companies accept. If you have questions about eligibility and reimbursement rates, it might be beneficial to give your insurance company a call as they can answer the questions that are more specific to your insurance plan.

We also offer sliding scale spots open for clients who need it. Modern Intimacy is a training organization and we have students on staff working towards their hours for licensure. Services with students have a significantly lower rate that may make attending sessions more affordable.
