  • Do you accept insurance?
    I do not accept insurance but clients may be eligible for out of network benefits. Please check with your insurance provider to determine benefits. If requested, I can provide a Superbill statement upon receipt of payment for services. Please note that any documentation for insurance purposes must include a diagnosis.
  • Where are you located?
    My office is located at 1221 S. Clarkson St. Suite 206, Denver, CO 80220. Street parking is available.
  • Will we meet virtually or in-person?
    I offer both in-person and virtual appointments.
  • What is a Good Faith Estimate?
    On January 1, 2022, a ruling went into effect called the "No Surprises Act" which requires health care providers to render a "Good Faith Estimate" (GFE) for private pay care (those who are not using insurance nor will seek reimbursement from insurance). The GFE works to show the cost of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs. The estimate is based on information known at the time it is created and is good until January 1st of the following year. The GFE does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur and will be provided a new GFE should this occur. If this happens, federal law allows you to dispute (appeal) the bill if you and your therapist have not previously talked about the change and you have not been given an updated GFE. Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act (PHSA), health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan, coverage, or a Federal health care program, or who are not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request, or at the time of scheduling health care items and services to receive a GFE of expected charges.
  • How long will therapy last?
    I really care about my clients getting results. I have found that working in a more intensive format, meeting two or more times weekly in the beginning not only can accelerate the process but also often shortens the total number of sessions required to reach treatment goals. Whether we work together for six months or more than a year, I always believe it is my job to work myself out of a job and my commitment is always to work as efficiently and effectively as possible.
  • When can I see results?
    I often work with similar kinds of issues. This means that I have a really developed competency in the areas that I practice. I will only take you on as a client if I feel confident that I can offer support and solutions to you. Based on the presenting issues my normal guidance is usually for a 3 month container.
  • What is your treatment approach?
    While I tend to work with a basic roadmap for providing relief, I work collaboratively with my clients to identify treatment goals and determine the most appropriate interventions to achieve those goals. I have also found that working in a more intensive format with more frequent sessions has been an efficient and effective way of addressing issues such as anxiety and relationship challenges.
  • What is couples therapy like with Lindsay Hanson?
    Couples often describe feeling relief as we begin the work to gain clarity on how and why they are stuck. I believe that all behaviors make sense when we understand the context and this allows me to approach each partner with a non-judgmental and empathetic presence.
  • What is EFT couple therapy?
    When working with couples, I use the evidence-based approach Emotionally Focused Therapy. In the first stage of the process, we look at the ways you get stuck, identifying negative patterns of interaction, and exploring how each partner copes with distress in the relationship. In the next stage, I help lead each partner deeper into their emotional experiences and create new kinds of interactions that enhance the bond between partners. We may also explore injuries that have occurred in the recent or distant past and create reparative experiences. In the final stage of the process, we leverage the greater connection experienced by the couple to explore new solutions to old problems.
  • Do I have to bring in conversation topics for each session?
    From the consult itself I will give you a pretty clear sense of what I see as the problem and what we will be discussing. I usually have an arc to the therapy that I do - in that I have created a formalised plan. During this time, you know that I will be focused on moving you towards greater resolution and clarity. I tend to have a plan in place and will be driving the process so that we are really moving through the parts that you need to work on.
