FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?
I treat adult individuals, couples, and families in my private practice. I also supervise associate therapists who work in my practice and have different specialties, including children, adolescents, grief, trauma, and parenting.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
I offer no-fee 15-minute phone consultation for prospective clients to gather information and answer any questions you may have. This can help us see if it would be a good fit. Email or call me if you would like to schedule a consultation call.
HOW LONG ARE THE SESSIONS?
Most individual sessions and some couples sessions are 50 minutes. Most couples and family sessions are 75 minutes, in order to ensure enough time to cover what's needed that day. How often and how long the sessions are is something that the client and I discuss as we go along, and might change depending on need.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM THE FIRST SESSION?
During our first session, we will briefly review your intake forms, and I will answer questions you have about my practice policies and my therapeutic approach. This first session is when we discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and begin to set your short and long-term goals for therapy. This is true with both individuals and couples. The first session is all about getting to know you and building a safe and trusting rapport as you begin your therapeutic journey. It will also help us determine if I am a good fit for your ongoing treatment.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES FOR THERAPY?
My rate is $220 per 50 minute session for individuals and $240 per 50 minute session for couples. For couples and families, I recommend 75-minute sessions which are prorated to $300 per session. My associate therapists offer lower rates as well as a sliding scale to accommodate those in need, although sliding scale spots are limited. Feel free to check in with me to inquire about this option. If I cannot accommodate you for any reason, I will do my best to help you find a therapist who can.
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
I do not accept insurance plans directly. However, if requested I can provide you with a superbill after several sessions which can be submitted to your insurance company for potential reimbursement.
