Getting Started

Please take a moment to review the following information


I offer a free 20-minute consultation over the phone, so you can get a sense of whether we have a good match. It is also an opportunity for me to decide whether or not I will be able to help you. Please contact me.

Reduced Fees

Many people understand that it is going to take quite a few meetings with the therapist to reach their desired goals. Therefore, reduced fees of 5% to 10% for every session are available through the purchase of session packages (either 5 or 10) in bulk. If you request, a Payment Options Handout can be sent to you by email.


During your phone consultation you will be told the cost for each therapy session. Also, if you should not show up for a scheduled session or you do not give a minimum of 24-hour notice that you cannot attend a session, you will be charged the full agreed-upon amount. If a joint decision is made for you to take a particular assessment, you will know the cost in advance.


Dr. Dunn’s office no longer interfaces with or participates with insurance companies in any way as happened in the past. Over time it was discovered that because of situations such as clients having high deductibles, they were paying out of pocket anyway. Clients were having to fill out forms and provide more personal information which could affect them in the future. So this office caters to consumers who want affordable mental health care and don’t want the insurance middlemen between them and their counselor. Therefore, this office transitioned to receiving cash for value-based care of clients. This improves the client experience and closes the gap between client and therapist.

Cancellation Policy

If you do not attend your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.


Payment is due at the time services are rendered. American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover/Novus, and HSA are accepted.

If you desire to become a client, click here and give Dr. Dunn your name, number, email address, and a couple of good times for you to receive a phone call. Dr. Dunn will then call you for your consultation. She will then send the documents listed below to you. You will read them, eSign them, and return them to her.
