Our first appointment will be dedicated to understand what brought you to therapy, your current needs, goals and expectations. During this session you will have the opportunity to ask me any questions you might have and decide if you are comfortable to begin this journey with me.
The typical counseling session takes place weekly or once every other week. Sessions may be scheduled more or less frequently based on client’s needs.
I am providing teletherapy and in person sessions. Please refrain from coming to session in person if you are feeling sick.
Fees can vary based on the approach used and the type of therapy (Individual, Couple, Family, EMDR).
Individual/Couples/Family therapy (45 minutes) – $150 (60 minutes) – $175
I operate on a sliding scale based on income and maintain a limited number of spots for those who need to pay a lower fee. The image on the left, “The Green Bottle”, may give you clarity on what financial access and capacity you have. I welcome continuing and open conversations about finances as I know circumstances change.
Payment & Cancellations
I accept cash, checks, Zelle, Venmo. Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. However, in most cases, this office is no longer billing your insurance. I will happy to provide paperwork that you can submit to your insurance company monthly at your request. I deeply regret having to take this action but find I am unable to manage the ever-changing vagaries of insurance companies’ reimbursement policies. However, there may be other arrangements we can work out via discussion. Check your coverage carefully and find the answers to the following questions:
What are my mental health benefits?
Does my insurance cover out-of-network providers?
If yes, what is the coverage amount per session?
Do I need to meet a deductible before my benefits kick-in?
Is approval required from my primary care doctor?
Please notify me by phone-call at least 48 hours before your scheduled appointment. Because your time is specifically reserved for you, cancellations less than 48 hours in advance will result in a charge of your full fee for the missed session.
