I offer a free initial 15 minute phone consultation to find out more about what you are looking for and to answer any questions you may have. From there, we can set up a first appointment together.
In our first session we will discuss more about what's bringing you to therapy at this time and what you are hoping to get out of the experience. You will also get more sense of how I work and have room to ask any further questions.
Subsequent sessions are generally 45 minutes or 90 minutes in length and we will meet one or more times weekly, depending on what is needed. Individuals usually prefer 45 minute sessions and couples often prefer 90 minute sessions to allow more time to share and explore. Once we decide to work together, your weekly time slot is reserved just for you.
I have found that the consistency of weekly sessions is necessary to allow us to get to know each other and to attend fully to what is bringing you to therapy. How long does therapy usually last? That is up to you, the client, and I do not place a time limit on your healing. This is talk therapy, so we do a lot of verbal processing. At times, depending on what you are seeing me for, you may have homework to work on outside of our sessions to help deepen your process and get to your results much faster.
I offer brief and longer-term therapy depending on what your presenting struggles are and what is needed. My long-term depth work is more of a process oriented therapy, vs. a goal oriented therapy.
Please contact me for current fees and availability.
Payment: I accept cash & check.
I am not in-network for any insurance panels currently.
However, I can provide you with a statement of services which you can submit to your insurance to seek partial reimbursement. Typically, PPO plans are able to reimburse some portion of out-of-network services and HMO plans are not.
If you are interested in receiving reimbursement you may want to call your insurance company and ask the following questions:
Are out-of-network providers of mental health services covered?
If so, what amount or percentage of sessions are covered and what, if any, deductible amount must be met first?
Is there a limit to the number of session that may be covered?
Is pre-authorization required?
What information do they require for reimbursement?
I have a 48 hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel within 48 hours, you will be charged your regular fee for that week’s session.
