To address numerous questions received after announcing Alabama's First Psychedelic Studio, I drafted THIS LETTER to address the most common questions I've received. I have not had time to thoroughly update this website, but the letter will hopefully offer some clarity.

– If you can please complete this WAITLIST & GENERAL INTEREST SURVEY, I will do my best get to you as soon as I am able.


– My rate is $250 for a 50-minute session.

Extensive time and resources are now being channeled into various film projects, trainings, and other avenues to expand access for legal, ethical, and safe psychedelic experiences. This rate helps cover the additional costs associated with legitimizing psychedelic work in Alabama and making these options more widely available to you and our community!

– A sliding scale fee of $200 or $150 per 50-minute hour is available by request for those in financial need.

– Payment is due before each session. I accept cash, check, debit, credit, HSA, and FSA. I use a HIPPA-compliant app for therapists called Ivy Pay. Once I receive your mobile number on your intake form, the app will text you payment instructions. We can do this together if you’d prefer.

– I don’t take insurance, but I’m happy to offer you a 'superbill.' If your insurance plan covers out-of-network providers, you may be eligible for reimbursement. There’s an organization called Reimbursify which simplifies the reimbursement process.

– If you need to cancel an appointment, you will need to cancel 48 hours in advance to avoid being charged for the session.

– I don’t want paperwork to hold you back from starting therapy, so I’ve streamlined the process as much as possible. Once you set up an appointment, I will e-mail you some required forms and a few optional ones. You can complete these in advance, or we can do them together.

– Our first session will be 80-minutes to allow extra time to review these forms. There is no added charge for this additional half hour.

– While I will send this to you directly, I am required to publicly list my HIPPA-compliant privacy policy, which can be viewed here: Privacy Policy


– I realize that out of pocket counseling is a barrier for many, and I'd like to make therapy as accessible as possible in the future. For the time being, however, I'm only able to provide therapy services out of pocket.

– I'd like to model a healthy work/life balance, which appears more possible by focusing as much time and energy on sessions and continued education, rather than insurance interactions.

– Psychedelic therapy and related services are not widely supported by insurance, particularly in Alabama.

– I worked exhaustively with insurance companies in my previous job and would like to explore what's possible without those constraints.


– Insurance requires a diagnosis on the first session, which has several drawbacks. I don't want to ascribe a label to you, the person, especially after knowing you for less than two hours; I don't want you to carry the stigma or identity of a diagnosis if these do not serve you; I'd like to explore the relationship between your presenting concerns and your life experience, rather than getting stuck on a label; and I don't want to potentially impact your future healthcare coverage or life plans, if either might be negatively influenced by a diagnosis.  

– I want to work with motivated clients who value our time together, and while the cost of therapy sessions is high, it's my hope that you find our work together to be worth it.
