Our first over the phone consultation consists of 30 minutes and is free. During this time, you can ask as many questions as you would like about therapy, my style, and what you hope to achieve in order to help ease any concerns you may have. This will also allow you and I to see if we are a good fit and if my approach will be able to work with your needs.
My fee is $125 per individual session; however, I do provide a number of sliding scale slots when available for those having difficulty with payment.
How long is each Session?
Each session is approximately 50 minutes long where we discuss problem areas and look for solutions and new coping skills to implement. I typically like to see clients once a week in the beginning to get a good idea of how to best support you. After a while it becomes standard practice to move to every other week when your symptoms reduce and you are able to cope more effectively.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, I ask that you let me know at least 24 hours in advance. If you miss a session without canceling, or cancel with less than 24 hour notice, you will be subject to pay the full session fee.
Cash, check, and credit cards are accepted.
At this time, I do not accept insurance. I am able to provide you with a super bill upon your request. With this super bill, you may be able to submit this form directly to your insurance company for out of network reimbursement (if applicable, please contact your insurance company first).
