Anxiety Therapy in Denver

Your thoughts can be overwhelming sometimes: the self-criticism, the anxious what-ifs, the comparing-yourself-to-others, and all the replays and regrets of the past.

You worry; you ruminate. You wonder what others will think of you. You replay interactions with others in your mind, wondering if you said the right things. You remember embarrassing moments years later. You often wonder what you could have done differently in past situations.

Even when things are going right, you imagine how it might all go wrong.

I want you to know that it doesn’t have to be like this.

You deserve to get better – and I can help you.

 

 

 

Hello, I’m Ryan. It’s nice to meet you.

My therapy approach is active, engaging, and focused on helping you make tangible changes in how you think and feel. I believe that we often develop patterns in our lives that can be self-defeating, counter-productive, and harmful to our mental health. These patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving often reinforce (and are reinforced by) unhealthy beliefs that we have about ourselves. These beliefs often form early in our lives, or in response to stressful and/or traumatic situations.

The good news is we have the potential to change these patterns and establish new, healthier, and more sensible ways of relating to our thoughts, emotions, behaviors and beliefs. As your therapist, I can help you make the changes you seek so you can get better for the long-term. 

  

During our work together, we will have insightful conversations and explore what you have been through from a place of compassion and acceptance.

You may cry sometimes, and you may laugh at times also.

In the end, you will have a new perspective, and a better relationship with yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your fees?

Fee information is available upon request and/or will be provided on the Good Faith Estimate during the initial consultation.

What happens during the free consultation?

During the free consultation, we will talk about what is happening in your life and what you would like to work on in therapy. The purpose of this video consultation is to determine if you and I are a good match to work together. The video consultation usually lasts about 30 minutes. When you book a consultation, you will receive an email from me with a link to my secure client portal where there are some forms to complete and sign before we get started. 

Do you accept Medicaid?

No. I do not accept and cannot work with individuals who have Medicaid.

Do you accept insurance?

I do not currently work with any insurance companies. I can accept Health Savings Account cards as a form of payment if you have this option, however. I can also provide you with a “superbill” which you may submit for potential insurance reimbursement. There is no guarantee that you will be reimbursed.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

I have a 48-hour notice requirement for all cancellations. Otherwise, the full fee is charged for the appointment.

Where can I find information about getting a good faith estimate?

Starting on January 1, 2022, federal laws regulating client care have been updated to include the “No Surprises” Act which requires health care providers to provide current and potential clients a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) of the cost of treatment. This is intended to provide you with transparency about your expected medical expenses and to protect you from surprises when you receive medical bills.

To ensure no “surprise billing”, my fees for counseling are transparent and listed on your new client paperwork, and always discussed and mutually agreed to before counseling services begin.

Because every client’s journey in therapy is different, it is challenging to estimate in advance the length of treatment. Some clients come to therapy for just a few sessions while others find it beneficial to attend therapy for months or years. Therefore, the Good Faith Estimate is just an estimate based on an assumed treatment period. You may choose to come to therapy more or less frequently or for a shorter or longer duration. You are always in charge of how often you attend sessions and you have the right to end treatment at any time.

During the initial video consultation, I will verbally provide you with a Good Faith Estimate (GFE). This estimate also will be available to you in writing and you can access it through the Simple Practice portal. If you are a current client, I will be providing you with a GFE as well.

Good Faith Estimate Notice

• You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

• Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.
